New business name, new blog, new beginnings…
I’ve needed to do this for months. Change my business name, begin a blog, get serious about my art. And I procrastinated. Which I am really, really good at. But as a major deadline looms ahead, I realize it is time to set aside the procrastination and earnestly pursue the life path I now feel compelled to travel.
The looming deadline is Reuse Conex, the first national conference ever for the reuse industry. It’s being held here in my hometown of Raleigh and since I have a passion for the world of creative reuse and scrap art, I decided to attend. And then I went one step further and submitted an application to be an exhibiting artist in the ReArt Exhibit at the conference. And I was accepted. And hence the deadline. I need to create art for this exhibit.
So much to do, so little time. This is my first chance to exhibit in front of a global audience. I know I will make a few mistakes. And I hope I do more than a few things right. But mostly I know that I am doing exactly what I need to be doing. As my nest has been emptied at home, I am finally and whole-heartedly pursuing my dream to be a scrap artist and build a career in mid-life that will last for the rest of my years.
And so I introduce to you, ReWorked Creations. (Formerly Mommies Quilts and Creations) In this blog, I will be sharing the process of my work, and my thoughts on the concepts of reuse, which is undergoing an explosion of growth in this 21st century. As time goes on, I hope we can all learn about the wonderful world of creative reuse together.
