E is for Explore

5 Apr

I started out 2012 with a mantra and theme word for my new year business creations. The word I have a focus on is EXPLORE.

E is for Explore.  The letter topic for the A to Z blog challenge continues.  To help me maintain a visual focus on my mantra word explore, I created a vision board for my new year resolution for 2012. It is a small board but it’s packed with journal inspiration and visual prompts for me to stick to my goals and aspirations. So far, so good. Visual reminders can be valuable in helping one stick to set goals and daily tasks needed to reach those goals in the first place.  Here is a photo of my vision board 2012.

Place your vision board where you will see it often.

The word EXPLORE has particular meaning to me as an artist and personally as well.  It is a word that has reminded me to take the steps to stay out of “routine”, and try new techniques, methods, materials, and approaches. Exploring to me means to not be afraid and try what is not along the beaten path.  The idea of the word gives me permission to fail and not be too bummed about a flopped outcome.  Art gives me the freedom to make and accept mistakes on a daily basis. Exploring what is unknown also gives me the strength to push ahead and see what process, or outcome is yet to be.  Adding key “buzz” words to your board will help keep you focused at a quick glance. I have included phrases and words like: reasons to smile, momentum, oomph, drop your jaw, and oh, yes I can!

Many of the areas on my vision board this year have a space for adding written sections. Along with word prompts in decorative fonts cut from magazines collage-style, I have spaces by which I added my own hand-written words.  This gave me ownership of the words and re-visiting the poster daily gives me the visual reminders of what I want to be accomplishing.  Visualizing means making it happen in our minds first the rest is still up to us to act upon how to make it a reality in the real word scenario.

On the back of my poster, I did something different. I have used the blank back space as a running tab of added information. I have written really small, milestone accomplishments so that I can re-read them and attest to progress made throughout the year.  Documenting and measuring your growth by goals accomplished is very satisfying and make room for steps to remain productive. This is a method of “patting yourself on the back”, after all not everyone knows all of your intentions, dreams and goals. Explore your potential, explore the possibilities you have and explore your strengths and weakness so that you can grow to be the better YOU that you want and hope to be.  What will you do to explore your capabilities today?

Feature Friday- Serving Up Style

2 Dec

Close-up of Artisan Server Handle

Club Creative Studio’s Feature Friday has become a time where the focus in this blog is directed and dedicated to an item from the Club Creative Studio art collection.  Sometimes the item is a highlighted new addition to the product line and sometimes it is a special feature of something that has been placed online currently or in the past.  Enjoy this shoppertunity.
Welcome a NEW item! Recently created and brought to a few craft fairs to note reviews, I have decided to expand, creating a few more of these fun and functional kitchen accessories.  Each is created as a one-of-a-kind item, incorporating my hand-rolled polymer clay beads, and other various elements into the handle section of the server.
How did this come to be? I am consistently drumming up fun ideas and possibilities to create items that cleverly and creatively and effectively highlight and include my hand-made beads.  I needed to discover a way to share the art in the kitchen. This is it. I love the fun, function and fashion of it.

Artisan Server

The size and count of the beads in each server will vary from each item.  Lending to two separate price points of $20.00 and $25.00 per item, United States funds, excluding tax and shipping/handling.  The price per unit is based dependant of bead design, complexity and finish. They are fun to get and give and I  enjoy creating the beads by hand with labor intensive techniques often including up to thirteen steps per bead in creation from start to finish. With pride, the creativity ends up becoming a useful item for kitchen use.
The Club Creative Artisan Server is serving up style.  Use it to cut and serve a slice of pie, cake or perhaps anything else that would call for a utensil that will serve dessert or another type food item with ease.  This makes a great hostess gift, and will add to the style of your own table setting as well.  The beads can be cared for with gentle wash with soap and water and the total measurement length is eight inches with four inches dedicated to the handle art.  It is not too heavy and it is sturdy.  Enjoy Art That Sets You Apart!  For more gift giving ideas please visit the online storefront often as items are all one-of-a-kind and hand-made to be totally unique and distinctive from the copyrighted art designs of Club Creative Studio.

This item can also become a special keepsake server as a thoughtful gift.  Consider having your Artisan Server become personalized  by having the four-inch long server surface professionally engraved by a professional in your area.  This one-of-a-kind item will certainly present your meal in an artful manner.  Picture the thoughtfulness shown on the face of someone receiving this item as a hostess or housewarming gift.  Family and friends can appreciate the unique and festive kitchen art, as you decide to maybe not hide it in a kitchen drawer!
