Everywhere I go I bring a small, hardcover sketchbook full of ideas that occur to me. There are cutouts of inspiring images, scribbles, sayings, thoughts, dialogues between God and I that I don't want to forget, and lots and lots of quick little drawings. Most of these sketches are ideas of items to make for my shop and some just for me or my house.
While sitting here today scrawling in my book I had a few great little ideas that I really took delight in. It is so satisfying when you can put down on paper an image of something that you can't wait to make that really reflects who you are as a person, what is unique about you, what is important to you, and makes you smile too. It's like looking down and going, "Yes, finally nailed it...that is me...I am not ashamed to make that and put it out there with my name on it."
