I met Amy (from Inspire Co) a few weeks ago when I first moved here and she told me about this miniature swap, called Club Little House that she hosts. I got so excited! (see previous swaps from Club Little House here)
I immediately thought of all the mini things I used to make for my Barbies in their Dream House. I loved Barbies!! When I was about 6 or 7 I made a fireplace out of an old Jello box and glued on tiny rocks that I gathered from the driveway (can you tell this was the early 80's when rock covered fireplaces were all the rage)! I made a mantle out of a little piece of wood and added "flames" with colored tissue.
I loved making tiny food for my Barbies out of that clay that you make out of flour. It was so exciting! I remember the thrill of making things just to MAKE things. Sometimes I forget that with my long list of things-to-do.
As soon as Amy sent out the announcement about this swap I was IN. Do I have time to be doing this - not really. But it's reminding me of my childhood and the little spark of creating things just for fun, so I think maybe that it's that I don't have the time NOT to do it. Because that is what creativity is all about right?
What am I going to make for this swap? I have an idea! Now to see if it works! I'll keep you updated!
When what you do stops being any fun...then you're not doing what you should.
Always take time to play :)
