This Is Where Two Brains Might Be Better

“Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.”
William Adams (b. 1934) U.S. financial consultant

Now that's a lofty ideal, huh? In the meantime the bead bloopers go out the car window along I-75 or US-27. Sometimes they get left on bathroom sinks in "superstores" - An ode to their stinkiness. I'll save the ones that are on the cusp (what's a cusp anyway?) in a Gordon Food Service plastic container. Another nod to their generic being. They do sometimes take on a new life from this container when my darling granddaughter is around. Isn't it cool that kids think you're great...even sometimes when YOU know your cool level has left the gate!

Tomorrow begins a new round of torching and creativity. I hope I know which ones to keep this time.

Don't toss 'em. I'll take them! I love getting rejects from fabulous bead artists!
