Recently, Sue Spargo (http://www.suespargo.com/) did a lecture at our guild's luncheon .
If you don't know her work, please check it out!
In the lecture she read a few lines from a fantastic book by Corita Kent called "Learning by heart".
I bought it right away because it struck a cord with me, and I knew if Sue recommended it, there was a reason to read it!
As you may know i started to design my own patterns, (I will show a preview soon...) and this book really appealed to me . I think that it is hard for me to focus on one type of craft or design, and this book is a 'manual' or exercise book, to channel that inner creative spirit. I just started it, and part of it is creating a 'sense diary' , or a collection of all those things that mean something to you, that move you, that cause you to react.
I am in the beginning stages but so far I am both intrigued and feel somewhat 'led' in this adventure. I highly recommend it.
Thanks Sue, for your limitless inspiration!
