The same beauty I find in creating is the same beauty I have to find in letting go…
I have become anxious with every signature creation that I must release into the hands of its new owner. So much time is spent in selecting the perfect colors, graphing a customized design, crafting, implementing the proper techniques and praying it all works out.
My creativity time is really time with my Creator. Many things I create I’ve had no formal training just a passion and desire to create it. If I believe I can make it I can. So I know in these quiet times and places He guides me. I’m in awe just as much as the recipient. Many of these items I will never duplicate and that’s what makes me nervous.
Every Artwear piece is a 15-30 day commitment to see a vision come to pass.
I put the same energy into signature cupcakes, however, the commitment is shorter.
Yet once its completed its time to pass it on. I cannot allow the nervousness of relinquishing my rights to overshadow the joy of completion. When commissioned to create on behalf of a party I will never get to see the recipients facial expression which is how we normally gauge if they like it, hate it, or are indifferent. I would like to make sure they are pleased with their gift yet only God knows.
The only way I know to stop this anxiousness is to know God is leading me with every step and every step is intentional. They will see and know that He and I love and care for every aspect of creating this special gift. Bringing them joy through our creative expression is our highest priority.
