Making feeds me, and other people's making feeds me too. I want to share my ideas, imaginings, hunches, and completed creations with you in this space and I want you to share yours with me (and the other two followers of this blog). I believe that we expand our boundaries through collaboration and I hope that's what happens here. It's not just about me having a place to show and tell, it's a place for YOU to show and tell as well...a place for all of us to MAKE new juicy creative ideas TOGETHER.
When I'm not making, I'm either really busy or creatively I'm in that "dying" part. If you're a maker, you're also very familiar the dying part. It's that place where you get stuck, dried up, unmotivated. You have a ton of things you could work on, most of them half done, but nothing is appealing. It's like opening the fridge when you're hungry and nothing looks good. It's that time when go out and buy (or assemble) everything for that fabulously exciting creative project, get it home and don't feel ready to start, so it sits...waiting.
My wish is that Make or Die will be a place where we can share about both sides of being creative, the making parts and the dying parts. BOTH places move us forward and inspire new and exciting creations. I can't wait to see what happens here! Let's go!
