Messy Kitchen produces something pretty good and I don’t mean food!

So to my husband’s dismay the kitchen is myContinue reading “Messy Kitchen produces something pretty good and I don’t mean food!”

I think that’s part of the enjoyment of creating any sort of art; translating an idea into something concrete. Working out the “how am I gonna do that?” to “I did it and it’s good!!” .
