A Magpie Post....
I went out to purchase a bath mat, and was distracted by a giant wooden key and scissors. What do you think came home with me? Let's count hands.. Bath mat *peers about room* strange oversized objects?* Yes! you have met me!
Well these unsuspecting plain Jane scissors had to sit and wait for me to have a day off, and when I did I pounced. I think it was time for some art therapy because it took two cans of pink spray paint and a large assortment of rhinestones to complete.
I'm quite pleased with the results, this blingy pair of scissors is just what my studio and creative spirit needed!
And speaking of creative spirits I came across this great series on creativity (posted by firefluff on twitter) this article on being eccentric and creativity.
Check out the list of eccentric tendencies
Score 10 out of 15 on this doctors list and you are quirky my friends!
I'm not big into taking quizes but this list was an eye opener for me. You see, not only do I fit just about every item listed, I never grasped why others didn't, and often feel/felt so sad for them. Really, bored? There is so much in this world to marvel at and learn! Of course we all have off days but I can't imagine not having interests and passions. My stress is not having time for them all! I'm so fortunate to have all of you here in blogland who are so eccentric (and I mean that as a high complement!) with bright eyes and open hearts! You are much appreciated!
What do you think, does eccentricity and artistic talent go hand in hand?
Or are eccentric folks simply more likely to feel free to pursue their artistic passions?
Food for thought, and do eccentrics ever own bath mats? I wonder....
