I recently came upon a great entry about retaining the awe of our youth on a great blog called Whole Latte Life: http://joannedemaio.blogspot.com/2010/06/wonder-of-it-awe.html . Very well written sentiments about how we shouldn't forget that feeling of Awe that we felt when we discovered new things, played with our toys and imagined great things in our younger days! Joanne's ideas of keeping that wonder and putting it into what we do and create as a gift to others was an excellent approach to a creative artful process.
One thing I used to play with a lot as a child were paper dolls and making paper doll clothes. Coloring them and designing them. I used to leaf through all sorts of magazines as a child looking at all the clothes. Later when I learned to sew I would spent countless hours making Barbie doll clothes using patterns and designing new outfits without patterns. I remember one that I made to emulate a Hungarian folk dancer. In greens, whites and reds, with ribbons all over. I don't know what happened to that outfit. I do know that I had such a great time with it.
I used to love butterflies too. It would be fun to try to catch them but I was very careful to not hurt them and I always let them go. They were always so magical to me. Maybe that's where I got the inspiration to put together this avatar outfit and theme enclosed.....my artful gift for you today!
