A MUCH NEEDED Day of Creativity

My creative soul has been pretty sad for the last few years. I used to have some magnficent project going all the time........but alas, not for the last few years. So, I called on the pro, my friend Anado, who lives with his partner Richard at Casa Las Ranas, The House of Frogs. You can go to www.madebyanado.com and be astonished and awed by his creations.
So I trooped out there yesterday with my friend Gayle, with the admonishment to Anado that I needed help jump-starting my creativity again. If there is any place on earth that that could happen it would be there - you'll understand after you look at his blog and house...........
Well, I must admit, I didn't just sit down and spew creativity.........I was pretty disgusted with what was happening, but slowly and surely, the spark was lit........I didn't finish the nicho which will be a homage to the "Gypsy Kids", but when I do I'll photograph it and share it with you.........it's pretty funny. I need to go out today and find a tiny black dog to include in the nicho.
How do I know that my creative spark has been lit again? I woke up at 3AM thinking of creative projects that I want to get busy on............isn't that amazing and wonderful?

Sounds like the pump has been primed. I could use a friend like Anado.

I do like that house. A bit of Barcelona in Mexico -- with a twist of lime.

Babs, that's awesome. I understand waking up at 3 am thinking about a project, it's wonderful and scary at the same time, I can't wait to see the nicho.

Yay! She's lit up, on fire. Wahhooo! That creative muse has been asleep far too long. Welcome home!

Oh and of course, that is definitely my kind of house. I love it, love it, love it.

Go, girl, go!
Can't wait to see the nicho.

WOW to all of you for encouraging me! How sweet and kind........BUT to my frustration, I haven't had a second since Thursday to work on the nicho...tomorrow I'm NOT answering the phone or leaving the house! I'm playing with the nicho. Ideas are flowing through my brain......so onward! It WILL be an outrageously silly thing before I'm through with it......
