Favorite Blog Monday

I love interesting blogs.
This week I am sharing a really cool blog with you all.

about the blogger...

There is one moment, in the first few seconds, when you look at a piece of art and know that you love it. It’s the moment when, if you’re an artist yourself, you look at it and feel a rush of uplifting inspiration… and total soul-crushing jealousy all at the same time. It’s when you walk away thinking, “Damn, I wish I thought of that.”

I wish I could have gone to art school.
In my little fantasy I can see myself exploring possibilities I don't even know exist.
So when I found this blog I was fascinated.
Expressions of art/craft in more ways than I can count.
I love the way the blogger describes her 'jealousy'
Hence the name 'The Jealous Curator'.
If you choose to take the time to go through her posts you too will be amazed.
There is no end to art.

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the 'creative bug' is just a wee voice telling you, 'I'd like my crayons back, please.” ― Hugh MacLeod, Ignore Everybody: and 39 Other Keys to Creativity

I remember doing this layout.
I felt a little like an artist because I used paint. 
Shows you what I knew...
Still, besides the memory of these two teenagers and the memory of Rochelle taking these pictures
I have the memory of feeling artistic for a minute!
That's what counts more than anything for me.

Here is another one.
I did this years ago. 
When I was ignorant enough to think I was making art.
Then again, who's to say I wasn't...

I was so proud of my ability to create these flowers with paper and paint.
And my beloved Sharpee.
What I'm saying to you is, if you feel like an artist, then you are.
Go ahead and look at My Favorite Blog Monday post here.
You might discover you are an artist too!
