I have a problem with designing...I think it is a common one. I collect pieces to put together, maybe create a special component, then put it aside to think about it. Weeks, maybe months go by, and the components are still in their little tray, collecting dust. I might pick them up lovingly and wonder if I should use them in something else...or create something totally different than my original thought. Sigh... Does this sound familiar?
Here is a collection that has been in a little "lunchables" tray, stewing for months. I believe I got those totally luscious lampwork beads from Sue Kennedy last September! The flower components have been cut and enameled since February when I discovered that they perfectly matched the lampwork!
|The complete collection, along with various sizes of copper wire I am contemplating and some other components I might or might not enamel!|
|See? Perfect match!|
|Just look at the gorgeousness!|
But really, that is as far as I have gotten. I have sketched out a few things, then just put everything back away. What am I waiting for?
What about you? Do you suffer from this terrible procrastination-inducing, can't decide-ive-ness? Its okay! I'm here for you!
I am determined to complete this piece by my next Saturday Share post with full details. Here is my challenge to you...do you have a similar piece in mind, components lonely from non-contact? Make a pact with me that in the 2 weeks until my next post, you will pull out that tray of half-wired beads or hammered metal and complete your project. It doesn't have to be the same idea you started with...you may have to take the original unfinished piece completely apart and start again! Been there, done that!
Okay, who is with me?
