Today is the second to last day of Thirty Days of Halloween With Me, Laura (#30DaysofHalloweenWithMe) and I am so excited about this post. I can’t beleive that 29 days of coming up with Halloween inspiration has gone by so quickly. I love my career, my job, my passions to create & share and my hobbies…and the reality that they are all wrapped up to make my LIFE. I am “So Thankful In My Heart”. Those are the words I share today, straight from Priscilla Burris, a fellow artist/designer/CHA friend.
Recently I accepted the honor of becoming the FIRST Resident Designer for The Rit Studio. It is the perfect place for me right now on my journey because it accesses so many of my strengths as an artist, a designer and mostly as a person who loves to share and create connections. I have had the privilege already of sharing the magic of dyeing with others and one of these is a long time artist colleague, Priscilla Burris. I have always admired her doodles and illustrations and her beautiful spirit. I sent her a box of dyes to play with and she has me in awe. She not only has already made masterpieces but she is just so full of gratitude. I got an awesome card earlier this week. today I got this in my mailbox. She painted it with Rit Dye. I LOVE THAT!!! Some say friendships are formed over cups of coffee. This one is being formed through the mail with a lot of love, inspiration and dye. I think that is colorfully cool.
I decided that I wanted to be the girl in the illustration. I went to work and a little bit of time later (and a shirt/scarf set dyed from white to match the outfit along with a quick pumpkin hair clip creation) I was almost ready. I braided my hair and dressed up to be that incredibly spunky, happy, glowing girl on the card. How did I do?
I hope that you find ways to access your creativity and share your passions with those around you. If you want to dye with me, let me know. I would love to be a part of your world too. If you want to know more about Priscilla, visit her website and prepare to be awed by her wonders.
Happy Almost October! Happy New Friendship Making! Happy Dyeing! And…HAPPY CREATING!
