where the heart is


i've been in kind of a weird art mood all week.
 i want to be creative, but have no idea what i want to create,
so sometimes i don't create at all!
but i figure instead of doing nothing, i may as well do what i love......
 pass some time carving a few stamps.
goodbye, weird art mood.

i hope your heart helps you discover playful art this weekend!  enjoy!

I seem to be having the same week. I love being creative but when I get in a rut it is crazy. I tried to at least make something that I needed. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Ain't it the truth! I love to just carve... it's very calming and somehow, 'orienting' for me (for lack of a better word!) I've searched internet for this carving product... it seems it's out of stock everywhere. Where do you get yours, Elvie? (And CUTE house! btw)

Lori this is awesome! I love it. I've never even used a stamp, but must start just to use some of yours. ♥

Hi Lori, I have missed you...I have moved to a new blog
www.createdforajourney.blogspot.com and I hope you will come over for a visit.....

Your stamps are so awesome that I think it's OK to make stamps; it's still creating.....but then everything you create is wonderful..You're just a gifted gal....

Hugs and blessings,
Nancy

Your stamps are precious. The point is...you are making art and I love what you make. Even your drawings that you have underneath your stamps are cool art. Adios weird art funk...

This is is great ! When can we FULLY see your darling creations? I need to learn to carve - that way I could make my own embroidery patterns - I "sorta" do that now - but it's usually just penciling it on to the fabric..and Lord know I can't duplicate one to another! LOL

Just a thought.....do you make custom stamps for people? I might want one of my Mama Bleu.

Dymphie said...

I sooo love your house stamp. I have had a similar couple of days. I want to do art but can't get my butt in there to do some!!! Have a great weekend!

Martina said...

This little house doesn't look weird to me - and the photo is so pretty. But, i have been to distracted to create myself lately. Let's just hope for an inspirational weekend!

so lovely... I heard a great quote this morning "If you don't feel lost sometimes, that means you're not going anywhere." - Penelope Trunk

I'm trying to remember lost means I'm at least on the PATH, even if I can't tell which direction I am headed in at the moment :)

Amazing little stamp, love how you created that. I've square fever cause I saw your workshop from July 27 and tried it also!Thanks for sharing.

Claire M said...

I can relate to your description of how you're feeling. But... I have to tell you that I feel the benefits of your new little house w/heart stamp. It is adorable and it made me smile again. You are so creative.

PaperPumpkin said...

I love it when you carve new stamps, Lori. You are the one who inspired me to carve last summer. I am hoping to make my own new ones still, in August...soon...!

Atticelf said...

Oh...I love that! I have been spending my time not being creative but looking at what other creative people are doing. While it is thoroughly enjoyable it is extremely unproductive. But inspiration is a powerful thing and it will kick in soon...I hope...

cheers!
