It’s winter where Club Creative Studio is located and  it’s cold.  It’s time to enjoy a little taste of bead soup.  No, I have not decided to actually EAT, sleep and breathe beads no matter what others think that I already do.  I am taking part in a beading challenge called Bead Soup founded by artist Lori Anderson.  This bead soup challenge pairs up persons creating hand-made beads and places them in a challenge together where they put together a goodie package and mail them to each other, challenging them to create from the stash. 

This challenge has three separate reveal dates so that bead artists have time to complete their projects. Most like me, plan to document the journey.  This is the first time that I am taking part in this event.  I first got word that my “Bead Buddy” Susan was from New Hampshire a few days ago. We have a means to communicate and keep in contact throughout this project.  

The full content of our packages are supposed to be a secret until they are received by mail. We are allowed however to give sneak peeks or “teaser photos”. These are two photos that introduce with curiosity concerning what I have included for this challenge.  When I asked Susan for a hint of what she was going to send me in her package, she said with a bit of wit and humor that my beads all had holes…included something old, something new, something purchased, something hand-made, and something blue. Hummm…I can hardly wait!

My reason for taking part in this beading challenge is to experience a creative challenge and go through my steps of creative thinking with beads sent to me.  I am also in total support of the artist paired with me as I am of all of the artists also taking part in this creative process (which totals over 500 participants).  They all eagerly use their creativity and talent to make hand-made beads and share with others for artistic growth.

Please stop by this blog often as I continue to share photos and information about how my first Bead Soup challenge is going. I am ready and willing to enjoy my Bead Soup and share it with you.

Creativity is Expression

7 Feb

Club Creative Studio- Creating allows you to express yourself.

It is no secret that creativity is a form of expression.

Have you discovered the reasons why creativity allows you to express yourself?  There may be several reasons why allowing creative thoughts and actions into your life can benefit you. In today’s Club Creative Studio’s blog post I want to touch on  few aspects explaining how creativity can  help you define who you are.  While it is true that “you are you” as a unique being and you are capable of expressing your individuality in several ways, how you express your creativity is where being creative comes into play.  Being creative and allowing yourself to be true will give you the chance to express yourself to the fullest.

Let’s say you are naturally a shy person. There is nothing wrong with having this quality at all, I am thinking of a word that has a reference to a characteristic many seem to want to overcome in some degree level.  Some people wish they were more outgoing, more brave and daring, louder, more showing of self-confidence.

Whatever the challenge we see as a potential shortcoming which by we identify with for any reason, I believe that by adding creativity into the mix, we  allow ourselves to tackle those challenges more readily.  Art therapists will probably be among the first of many to tell you that the use of art in many forms will free you of many things. I too believe in the power of art as a means of expression and a break through to many situational problems or concerns.  Letting out what is inside is a release of sort that can have a healing and revealing process associated with it. Do you know how being creative can benefit you?

 My Five Benefits to Being Creative

1.  Release.  Using creativity as a means of release can free you up of unwanted stress and tension. Free your mind of worries for a bit, or share what is considered over-load information in a different venue.

2.  Answers an Inner Need. Being creative allows you to be satisfied with the needs that you have to express what your imagination fosters. Do you have a need to be expressive and share your inner thoughts? No matter if a creative need is expressed to yourself in a private journal entry or sung out loud to the roof tops, creativity can call upon your inner needs and be filled.

3.  It’s Natural.  It may not seem that way sometimes but, we all have the potential to be highly creative. It is only when we become older that we lose sight of how easily creativity can flow because of all of our hang-ups. Being creative can become automatic and freeing we can appreciate the natural built-in drive to strive to be creative we already have, naturally. Creativity is natural and it is contagious. Creativity begets Creativity.

4.  It’s a Brain Game.  Looking at creativity growth as a personal challenge is a way to increase it with intended purpose. It takes practice to be creative without having to think about what you are doing.  The more times you are calling upon yourself to think or act on a creative thought or impulse, the faster those opportunities appear when you need them the most. Your out-of-the-box thinking concepts will become more frequent when you train yourself to be more expressive and imaginative every chance you can.  I believe being more creative can become a personal challenge and attainable goal.  Practice of anything will bring about a change.

5,  Shake It Up. Expressions of creativity shakes up our senses.  Adding a new view to a situation, a twist on a solution, or a vision of enlightenment stemming from a creative thought adds spice to life.  Even if you are not the one being creative but you are listening to a creative person or thought, their creative actions or words can inspire you to act in a creative manner as well.  Why not use creativity to shake up your world?  The world needs MORE creative thinkers. We need different solutions, we desire our days to be exciting and worth remembering. When creativity shakes up and changes something, we take notice.

If creativity or calling upon your creativity is not your strong suit, I guess I made this list for you in mind. If you can find one of the numbers helpful to inspire a creative spark and reason to be creative today, I’d love to hear about it by a comment below this post. Have a great day being “Creative Everyday”!

Lady In Red

Club Creative Studio. Samples in Red.

Are you seeing red lately?  The color red?  Are you finding the desire to dress or wear accessories that are red in color? Would you notice a lady in red when you see one? 

It seems that the color red is around us more during December and February.  You are probably seeing red hearts, roses, bows, candy wrappings, candy boxes, clothing and jewelry highlighting the color red now-a-days.

Club Creative Studio loves to create with the color red.

Club Creative Studio loves to create with the color red.

Does the color red invoke certain feelings for you? I recently asked Club Creative Studio Facebook friends this very question: What comes to mind when you see the color red?  Here are some of their responses in a word: power, passion. love, lipstick, hearts. blood, roses. I think that the color red is also fiery, hot and bright.  It awakens our imagination and stimulates our brain.  Have you heard of the “power tie”?  A power tie is a necktie that is red.  Red gives you strength and confidence.

Take a look at yourself the next time you are wearing the color red. Are you acting with extra spunk or attitude?  Are you happy and loving when you sport red? 

You don’t need to be covered from head to toe to get a taste of red in your life. If it is not your normal color to wear try an accessory or small pop of color from a necklace, bracelet or earrings.

I do not have items “color-coded” on the website but, you will find red integrated into hand-made art within the Club Creative Studio online storefront found at http://www.clubcreativestudio.com  I welcome you to browse and see if something catches your eye there.  Maybe it will be something created in the color red, maybe in an unexpected color combination. Happy Shopping!

My Latest Beading Challenge

Be supportive of fellow artists, they are just like you- creating with love.

Welcome to the Feature Friday post on the blog with a focus on creativity from Club Creative Studio.

Today I would like to highlight the efforts of those working with artist Lori Anderson from her Bead Soup Bead Challenge. There should be a message to this madness and it could be to BE CALM and LOVE JEWELRY, while taking part in a beading challenge.  Ready? Set? Bring on the beads!

I have had my share of taking part in beading challenges. Some situations were formal and some projects were casual.  The main characteristic known within a beading challenge is that there is an organizational factor associated with the challenge and there is a level of commitment that is demanded to take part in a beading challenge.  Beading challenges allow you to reach deep within and try your best with what is on hand or work within a box of limited creativity to the fullest.

If you have decided to dedicate your efforts to a challenge of any type dealing with creativity, take a few deep breaths and dive right into the creative building phase.  Use the opportunity to express your creativity and build to new heights.

My latest challenge dealing with beading is going to be an interesting one.  Two artists who are creating hand-made beads are paired together and are asked to exchange beads and create using them.  The person who as founded this has been offering this opportunity for seven years.  She is seemingly extremely organized and has a great system for getting from point A to point B.  This is one reason that I was drawn to take part in her beading challenge. She recently sent me an e-mail and explained what she was up against in her beginning stages of setting up our beading partners. I give nothing but credit to her and her husband for dedicating their time and love of beading to bring others together in the same love of beads.

1) Visit Blogs. Lori takes time to look at all of our blogs because some are just contest entry blogs and that is not in our interests.  Some of our blogs weren’t entered correctly and she had to physically find them.  She takes steps to do this to insure that we are paired with someone who doesn’t work in too similar styles.  She uses a spreadsheet  to track what each person works with in their beading, and finds that out by visiting all of our blogs.

2) Highlight Participant List.  There are 142 international people taking part in this year’s challenge.  Many are in Canada and the UK, but  she reports that there are some from Bahrain, France, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Luxembourg, Austria, Australia, New Zealand, and Switzerland, among a few other places.  Her system involves matching bead artists who have requested to be paired within certain areas or other needs.  There are three separate “reveal dates” that the artists get to chose from for their projects.  So, knowing that date is another aspect that she pairs us with the best she can.  Those who have indicated that they have no preference to their reveal are probably her instant friends (Smile). Her husband on a second computer helps at this point and together they work out the pairing.

Last year’s Party.
3) Separate Information.  Because she had three different reveal dates, she uses those spreadsheets in a separated manner, and starts her pairing from that point.
  
4)  Email Contact.   This year in Bead Soup Blog Party Seven: there are over 500 participants. For each pair she personally e-mails the partner’s name, e-mail address and blog site associated so that we can keep in touch with our progress. This gives me a headache just reading about all of those addresses and messages. Thank goodness for cut and paste and cc options, right?

It is said that she normally gives herself a week to complete this task but, I know that there are many more sleepless nights  and excitement associated with the planning of this event. Lori has started her seventh challenge and I look forward to taking part in my first challenge with her at the helm. She is busy using her organizational skills in a creative way for many. Cheers to Lori today as she carries on in her efforts at http://www.prettythingsblog.com/2013/01/sign-ups-are-open-for-7th-bead-soup.html.

I Did Not Fall Far

29 Jan

Club Creative Studio was recently interviewed on radio and a few of the questions had to do with my background and how I was raised. We got on the subject of how I came into creativity as a child.  Stating that my background was pretty much typical, I was brought back to the memories of all of the little signs that creativity was going to be a part of my growing years. And, maybe that was or was not to be considered typical after all. It seems maybe I should admit that I did not fall far from the creativity tree.

I told the short story of my father and how our garage walls were adorned with several vignette mural paintings of Disney characters that he painted by hand. Every so often, storage items would be pushed aside so the walls could be touched up with maintenance rituals, or painted over in entirety to change-up the display views.  That was normal to me but, looking back in memory, why did I not know that we had the only home that had that? To me that was typical  I guess.

To mention more of the out-of-the-norm creativity, we were the only people who I knew of that had a HUGE Nebraska Cornhusker Football Helmet painted on the sloped, driveway. I wish I had photos of that now to explain further. This was not ordinary at all! Being huge college football fans of the team, this helmet declared that we were the “really” dedicated ones.  No car could be parked over it on game days, and certainly no oil spills were allowed to damage the painting.  When it needed touch-ups, he had the area roped off, so God forbid any person, neighborhood dog, stray cat, bird, or even an ant cross the path of the wet paint. At night, a stinking spotlight was pointed on the driveway if they won. Now, how embarrassing is that to a little girl? Let me tell you it was.

Everyone knew where we lived because all they had to do was look for the huge painted helmet on the driveway.

Everyone knew where we lived because all they had to do was look for the huge painted helmet on the driveway.

I went on to say that although art was not the field of profession for my parents, they certainly were in touch with their creative sides.  My mom is still creative everyday. Looking back, she was my main role model for trying new creative things. I recall her taking a painting class from one of our neighbors and finally coming home with a really cool painting of a vase of flowers.  This reminds me to ask her if she still has it in her house. She was really proud of her oil painting on slate.

Here is my Mom at one of her sewing machines.

Here is my Mom at one of her sewing machines.

I  call my mom the “Jackie of all trades” I was witness to her many creative artful talents. I remember watching her actually build a faux fireplace for the family room from scratch. It had a rounded shaped wood base on the frame that stood out from the wall so we could sit around it. She lined that with carpet. It included faux bricks that were each strategically placed as well as a focal point of a huge etched mirror with a painted matador  image. Yes, I typed that description correctly.  No matter how gaudy this sounds now, back in the day it was a very unique concept to have. It brought an architectural detail like no other to our home. And it was functional to boot, she inserted electric logs and that baby would cast a great glow and heat as well. It was never considered an eye sore in the least. Imagine that.

I have seem my mom creatively, garden, cook/bake, decorate, craft, paint, draw, can food, make candles, dance, sew, quilt, upholstery, design/construct wedding gowns, and more. It was a creative world that I was brought up in. Why did it take so long to realize that?  In a slight effort to pass along tradition and the bravery to be creative, I guess someday my daughter can remember the times she has seen me do strange and artful things too. The difference today is that she will have plenty of photos as proof of it all.

Creativity: Where Is It?

29 Jan

Thomas Merton quote.

Thomas Merton quote.

Club Creative Studio has a few questions for you to ponder today.  Concerning CREATIVITY…do you know where it can take you?  Hopefully you do not have to look long or hard to find it. Creativity can be found within yourself or within others.  So knowing that; where is it? Do you know where to look or who to look at? Do you know what it can do for you? Where it will lead you?

Discovering creativity levels within yourself or others is a growing and learning process.  As the quote from Thomas Merton suggests, art  (or creativity in general) enables or allows us to find ourselves. We can discover what is deep within us or at the top of the surface.  Merton also goes on to say in the quote that we can also lose ourselves at the same time, meaning that we can set ourselves free and experience creativity at its fullest, not paying much mind of other things going on around us. Creativity never grows old or goes out of style. Creativity may grow stale but we can always revive it and relive it and improve.

Creativity Never Goes Out  of Style

One place to start looking is quite obvious. Merely look ALL AROUND! Yes! Creativity is all around us, I have always said this many times. Open your eyes to discover the unique qualities of life around you. How can you get lost in creativity and where will it lead you?

While I was a classroom art teacher, everyday I would strive to stress in my students the importance of seeing creativity around us. Expressing it and experiencing creative venues gave our students the chance to see where creativity could take them.  Maybe they were introduced to a new concept. Maybe they found a new talent or practiced a new skill. Perhaps during our lessons, they grew appreciative of other’s creative efforts or served as inspiration to another as they expressed their own creative thoughts.  Taking extra steps to recognize where creativity is affords us the opportunity to search it out when we need it.

Where will creativity take you? The creative journey can be as long and as exciting as you make it out to be. It can be shared and appreciated.  A creative journey does in fact allow you to find yourself, express yourself and understand yourself. Creativity also lends the opportunity to get lost in the process, lose track of time and lose our inhibitions and fears about art or any other creative thought process or expression. Dance, prose, visual arts, theatrical arts etc., they all are expressions of creativity that take us to places we have never seen before. Relish in the creative process. Look around to gain it and foster it to grow it.

The aspect I love the most about being an artist is the fact that what I create can be shared and appreciated. While creating, as I continuously find myself and lose myself in art, I also get the thrill of giving and sharing art.  To view results of  my creativity, please take time to view creations on the website. The inventory is updated and evolving often.  The creative spirit is there to inspire, appreciate and best of all, purchase! Enjoy! http://www.clubcreativestudio.com

 

I Am All Ears!

28 Jan

I am “all ears” to listen to your comments from the Club Creative Studio post today!

How did I miss those ears?

How did I miss those ears?

Club Creative Studio has a continued focus on creativity.  Today’s post explains a few creative happenings from the past and present.

A week ago, while viewing Asian stone sculpture ruins at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, I took a photo of this beautiful stone head. I guess it’s over-all beauty, and facial expression struck me at first in appeal. But, later as I got home, I noticed the obvious aspect of this statue;  the figure’s EARS.  The new revelation may have been in the forefront of my mind as I made many pairs of earrings that particular evening, and had ears on my mind.  Never-the-less, the ears certainly are a focal point of this stone sculpture, agree?

Looking at these ears in my photo gave me the prompt to write on my Facebook business page that I would have loved to sneak a pair of my hand-made earrings on this statue on display at the museum. What an improvement that would make! It also brought to mind the notion that I have not written about how I first got my own pierced ears. I would love to share this story with you.

From what I have been told, I got my ears pierced at the young age of three days! My mother pierced my ears in the same manner that many she knew of that time did in their families. She used ice cubes, a sterile sewing needle, a cut raw potato, red embroidery thread and cotton balls with rubbing alcohol. Without going into gory details, I among many others who went through this same process made it through without infection or turmoil after a few weeks of continual care and applications of rubbing alcohol with cotton balls.  A few weeks later, I was sporting my first pair of gold earring studs.  No, I do not remember any pain what so ever associated from that event. And yes, I still have my pierced ears.

If I had any baby photos in my possession, this is where I would certainly share those. Because I don’t have any on hand, please believe me when I say that I looked adorable with my bling on at such an early age! The craze to add second piercings in ears was high and popular around the time I hit middle school. I was in the eighth grade when I got my double piercing in each ear.  This time and at that age, I went to the mall and got the “piercing gun” shot into my ear lobe. This sounds so painful and crazy to write and say that out loud right now. I wore my second earrings in my ears at whimsy and even to this day, I wear two pair at once at random times when the mood strikes me.  I never got into more piercings or high piercings along my ear or in the cartilage however.

Step ahead with me into my future from that point in time. Having my own daughter in front of me gave me the thoughts that tradition was to rule and she would also have pierced ears at a young age. No, I did not allow my mother or anyone else to pierce her ears with the needle and thread technique at the age of three days but, she did get them pierced eventually. From the ideals of tradition, I wanted my daughter to have pierced ears. The ideas at that time were commonly voiced in opinion that a mother should not make the decision for her child concerning pierced ears. A popular belief and argument expressed was (is) that the child should decide that at a later date for themselves.  Also, I remember hearing “If God wanted you to put holes in your body, he would have placed them there). Many views, many beliefs, many separate decisions to consider when giving permission to alter your child’s appearance.

My husband and I discussed this and we came to a few conclusions. Yes, she could get her ears pierced but, if he was not around to actually see it happen, he would be fine with it.  Well, with permission granted, I thought about when this would happen.  As our children went through their series of childhood vaccinations, it did come to mind that the short crying spurs from those inoculations would also be about the same in duration from the piercing gun method on an ear.

My husband, being in the military, had a short deployment for three months and our daughter was five months old. That was when I took her to the mall with a friend and she got her ears pierced with the piercing gun. She did well and had no problems with them. When my husband returned home from Haiti, the deed was already done. Our daughter had bling on her ears. And we were all fine with it.

For many years when she was older we made our own earrings together. Making earrings for gifts were our shared creative outlets. And we were expressive in wearing earrings everyday.  Today, at nineteen, my daughter still has her ears pierced and enjoys keeping earrings in, and will make them on occasion as well using my supplies in the studio. Over the years we have discussed earrings and on the subject of getting more piercings in her ears she says that she is glad that I got her first pierce but, she is not interested in getting any other holes in her ears.  Time will tell one day if she has her own daughter and what path she will take on this subject. I guess I will wait for that time to come to continue this post.

To view the hand-made earring category collection online from Club Creative Studio, visit the page link below and click on the scroll down tab entitled: Earrings. I create with a variety of beads. All available online earring items are created for pierced ears however, I often make “clip” earrings from special requests. It takes is a small adjustment from me to transform an existing pair into non-pierced earrings or I can create with a custom request in mind. Enjoy!

Inspired By Creative Quotes

26 Jan

Great reflection quote for the creative person.
Great reflection quote for the creative person.

Today, Club Creative Studio shares a quote that has inspired me and is proven to be correct for correlation in the world of the arts.  Creative quotes can be great reflective words and inspire on many different levels. The words of Vincent Van Gogh can transform your way of thought with a certain focus.  These three simple lines can become your everyday challenges for your creative spirit.  Are they words that you can relate to, or hope to incorporate into your creative world?

I Am Seeking

Are you a person who seeks out creativity or yearns to explore new adventures?

I feel that as a creative person I am always seeking. I seek to find the time to create, and stay motivated. I look to find the best materials, new materials. I seek knowledge and wisdom from others in the arts. I search for the best technique to incorporate in my creations. I seek to become a better artists on a daily basis. I am seeking answers to my many questions. Yes, I am a seeker, are you?

I Am Striving (And Thriving)

Are you a person who is striving to thrive in your environment?

Are you one who wonders how and if you are actually doing a good job in your creative life? Do you know what it takes to thrive in your own creative level or situation?  If you have creative goals and are striving to obtain them, it is more likely that you will have milestone successes and can relate to the reward of thriving in your field.  Does your current creative journey give you satisfaction and joy?  If it is not are you taking steps to get you to the point of thrill? I feel that I am striving everyday to perfect a technique, try something new, or maintain a productive status.  Thriving in both my art and business is among my most general and continual efforts.  Whenever I am given the chance to express and provide art and help another side step and overcome ordinary, I know I have just experienced a slice of “mission accomplish”.  I am doing what I have set out to do each and every time I create Art That Sets You Apart! Learn to evolve.

I Am In It With All My Heart

Are you dedicated to your creative tasks?

Being a creative person calls upon the inner strengths. Are you the type of person who can stay focused from start to finish of a project? Are you dedicated to the progression of your art or craft?  Your productivity depends upon your work ethic and dedication.  My personal mantra: Be Creative Everyday reminds me that I am “in it with all my heart”. I own the idea that I can express myself through art every day in some fashion or form. Past, present and future are all markers of time that has or will show me that I am indeed involved with creativity with all my heart.

This notion of knowing that I have my heart involved with my work helps me shape creative efforts in my workspace: Club Creative Studio.  On many levels, the past has been a part of this creative growth.  Love of art and hands-on creativity has proved to be a creative outlet for me. In experimentation and creative growth, the experiences of the past have taught me to use those events as background starting points of prior knowledge and skills. Your art may feel like a thing of the past but, it is what also helps propel you into your present art and your future creativity.

In present-time, knowing that I place my heart and soul into creating art gives others the opportunity to see what the creative spirit can offer and share.  In future-times, maintaining the drive and personal attachments of art created proves that an artist does put their personality and a bit of themselves in all creative tasks, resulting in expressive, personal and unique creative endeavors.

Caring And Sharing

I would love for you to visit the Club Creative Studio website to see for yourself how I am creative everyday.

Look at the Calender Today

22 Jan

Today’s Club Creative Studio Two-Cent Tuesday post is about how you can use creativity and entertain yourself at the same time…for FREE.

This idea has the potential for unique expression and a very creative day just by looking at your cat.   Today is National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day! No, I did not make this up!

If you are a cat-lover like we are in our home, you may believe that your cat is indeed communicating with you on some level.  The antics of cats are fascinating to watch and enjoy.  If you notice that your pet is doing something to gain attention, have you also considered that they may be asking a question in their own way?

If in fact your cat has questions on its mind and had the means to express it in a way that you could actually understand and give feedback to them… what would you interpret that your cat would ask of you?   Below, you will meet Nimbus, our Butterscotch cat.  I think that our two cats rule the roost here so it is not unfair to think that if they asked me why I bother them and take photos of them, the answer I would have for them would be: “Because you are so cute!”

Meet Nimbus. our Butterscotch  cat.

Meet Nimbus. our Butterscotch cat.

What type of communication connection do you have with your cat?  Nimbus did not start out as a social kitten, but, he has evolved into a very loving cat claiming my daughter as his favorite human being.  If Nimbus asked the question “When is that college student coming back home?” My answer would be: “At the next school break, be patient as you wait for your best friend to return, she will.” If you have pets of your own, take time today to recognize the special calendar day and embrace in wonderment the curious nature of them.  Think about what they may be asking of you in human question form. Use your imagination today to be CREATIVE in a different way!  Happy National Answer Your Cat’s Questions Day!
