Getting back your creative gene...

I just realized that I've been so busy building my Jeanne d'Arc Clothing line that I've neglected doing what I love doing the most.
And that is, creating things.  Sooooo....
I found this mermaid image...

And made it into a pillow.  Simple and pretty.

 Just goes to show you that we never lose that creative gene.  It sometimes takes a break and then.....Bam!  It's back!  Thank goodness for that!!!
So, what have you created lately????

So pretty! I haven't created anything! I've got a set of pillow cases I'm trying to embroider, but they wanted a break. :)

Great pillow!

If there is only a few minutes to create in a day, I use it. Creating beautiful pieces like the mermaid pillow is important for our well-being. Plus it is fun!
