Yesterday I was working on a version of another type of little gourd, somewhat different than my Milagra Girls. As I sat at the table across from my son who had just begun the second part of his daily homework which tonight consisted of 50+ math problems, he stopped for a minute to ask me a question. He wanted to know if I ever just stared at a gourd, and dreaded starting new one? Knowing how long they took, he wondered if I was ever daunted the hours of work that may lie ahead. My intial response surprised even me, because I said "yes".
While I still love creating "my girls", I'm finding myself creating them less and less. You might think that because I've made so many of them over the years I'd be tired of them, but that's not it. I really do still love making them. Adding beads, personality, the discovery of each little soul. But I think it's more about wanting to do other things and feeling I don't have enough time to do it all. I have so many other new inspirations and ideas floating around my head all the time. I have an endless supply of "things" to use and things I want to create and experience.
With that said, I thought I would post a few images of some of my more recent Milagras as a sort of catalog of inspiration for both me and you. I know I'll make more sweet girls, maybe not for a while, maybe this afternoon, but for now they'll be here.
I'm a chorizo lovin' mama of two, who loves creating things for people to enjoy!I love Ernie,my kids,God,dogs,color,my garden,Mary, mangos and working late at night when the house is quiet not necessarily in that order.I love tiny creative spaces & things to put things in. During the day one of my favorite places to work is outside in my ODLS (outdoor living space).I love my family and friends passionately and pray that "the things that matter most will not be at the mercy of those that matter least"...Goethe
