Sparking and Savoring the Artful Life

Creative Wish


This is MY CREATIVE WISH FOR YOU!  It’s a little thing I wrote a while back about how important it is for us to make things and create and play and feel free to explore. I hope you like it!

There is a longer version too, that I might add soon!

  1. Lynn, I have been a fan of your work for so long and stumbled across this recently and just really love it. I have recently recommitted myself to my creative path and this is like sun shining on my creative soul. Thank you for this and for your wonderful and inspiring work!

  2. Lynn,
    Your playful verve for life emenates from your booth each time I happen by it at local shows and i’m always drawn in to explore, most recently in Mt.Dora.
    I was sure to follow up by visiting your site and blog, WHAT AN INSPIRATION! Im so glad I did. Thank you for sharing your art/life/world.Thank you for the creative wish video. Thank you so much.
    I have been sidetracked off of a serious artistic path for some time now. You inspire me to get back on it. I just keep waiting for more space or the right time…wah wah…
    You are right. We all must create. I MUST use all of the boxes of collected thimbles and buttons and broken jewelry and rocks and doll heads and other “treasures” that I have insisted I would use to “make stuff”. I’m gonna DO IT!!! THANK YOU XXXXXX Im going to go make something. 🙂
