InstructionsI tend to just use my imagination- the hardest part of making anything is doing it and waiting to see how things turn out.

What was your inspiration?
Life is my inspiration most days. I try really hard to do so many things and yet I have to pace myself and or give up on some. I actually never give up. I just put them on a back burner until I have found a different way of doing what I wanted done. Some times it takes me years to get my ideas done while other times its over night. Most things though take a week to two weeks as long as the weather permits ie family ect.. other life things which take center stage when its comes to my attention.
What are you most proud of?
Myself. I had thought I would not be here and yet I am still. I had thought I would of given up and thrown in the towel yet I have not. I thought I would of left and not looked back. I have not. I am proud of myself for continuing to learn, make, try new things, and most of all for having the endurance to look forward to each day and see it as an opportunity to discover something new about myself and the world I live in.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Come have a cup of coffee and laugh with me about it. no wait.. lol Take your time have fun with it and do not stress out over it. Remember NEVER put wet clay in a Kiln...trust me. Always make sure you have allowed your clay/silver/copper/brass/glass/paint/enamel to be DRY before you add heat- use safety glasses and follow all safety recommendations and if you don't have any then use common sense -never smell of something in your studio/home if you are not sure of it- never taste of hobby supplies even if they look good enough to eat- keep all children away from all craft supplies unless supervised.. did I miss anything? oh yes.. use your imagination and even if you hate it someone else might love it.
