The Power of Craft


There are two ways of spreading light:
to be the candle or the mirror that
reflects it.

When Mr. Lee and I started dating we had
a teeny tiny difference of opinion.
Mr. Lee called my acrylic paints "craft"
paints in a condescending voice. 

In my heart I was a homemaker
who needed to craft.
Oh yes, I worked outside the home
but that didn't define me or bring
the satisfaction of crafting. 

Reading about crafting and crafters
is almost as satisfying.






















Embroiders' art and book.
The book Hoopla, by Leanne Prain


Mr. Lee's comment was a put down. 
Definitely, a put down. 
True Mr. Lee is the
artist but I get
more crafting done, because
without the meditative qualities
of making stuff my soul
would wither.

Another great book:
Creative Block: Get Unstuck, Discover
New Ideas. Advice & Projects from
50 Successful Artist
