A Tiny Bee Project #5 - North

This week creative prompt was North, which I immediately thought of Kim Kardashian and Kayne West's Baby- baby North and then I started thinking about that I live in the North West but I think my favorite North is the North Star.  North Star reminded me of a book that I read a long time ago "Follow Your North Star" by Martha Beck. It is a pretty great book about a woman who learns how to listen to her inner voice and that ultimately if one wants to lead the best life for them they have to follow that inner voice for happiness.   I have been thinking a lot lately about my inner compass and where is it headed or I should say my inner creative compass.  I love to make art but I feel like I am not making enough. I'm not sure where the drive has come from to just make stuff but it's hit me over the head that I should be making things and that I need more projects, even though I have a full plate of projects and have started planning for 2014.  Maybe I'm a little crazy? That's what my north is telling me to go and am thinking I should just go with it and not think about it. no over thinking allowed. :)

Happy Thursday!

Next weeks assignment is "Collection". :) How ever you want to interpret it.

This is just lovely. The post along with the sketch is particularly beautiful. I left a joking comment on your instagram that your sketches look nothing like my sketches, but truly, this is beautiful.

I love this intricate pattern, and the great story behind the design! It reminds me of wallpaper in old English houses!
