Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Support Other Artists!Last Friday I took myself on a fun date :) I went and walked around the Cherry Creek Arts Festival here in Denver for a few hours. Talk about inspiration!!!! It was wonderful to be around all of that creative energy and to watch people walking about to appreciate the creative outpouring the artists had on display. I often walk through art fairs/shows and take note in my mind of all the different things I might be able to try/make myself. This time around, I still had that thought in my mind. At the same time, though, I recognized that without these artists sharing their work, my creative well might have been a bit drier. So, I decided it was time to give back to these artists and actually buy some things. It was my way of putting energy back into the well. To support another artist demonstrates to the Universe that creativity is something to be cherished and honored. I came home with two new pieces of art - one by artist Olive Kraus and the other by artist Angie Pickman. It felt wonderful to be able to support these two talented women and to add their energy into my home :) When was the last time you supported another artist????
