When I was a kid I remember getting these random boxes from my grandma Aurora. I loved it when my Mom would get a package, they always seemed like treasure boxes to me. Each box filled with a random array of bits, from fabric and buttons, to little soaps wrapped in decorative paper, and Mexican candies. And there it was, my love of the random beauty of life was born.
Growing up we never had too much so my creative adventure started with a rummage through my Moms rag bag. I would pull out bits and bobs and design my Barbie’s the coolest outfits. As the years progressed my art and inspiration changed but, my use of bits and bobs continued.
My creative inspiration is extremely eclectic; I find joy and interest in so many things around me. The way light comes through a window, the colors of flowers as the sun dances on them and how they move with a Spring breeze. Growing vines and little treasures left behind by storms. It’s all a bounty for us to share with those around us. Nature plays a huge roll in my creative process as we are all a part of this world.
My creative process starts with a look around to see what I have floating around. I use old jars and bottles, craft supplies donated to me and bits picked up at thrift stores and local sourced scrap exchanges. I usually go for home décor art as I have always loved creating a perfect space. I try and reuse as much as I can, creating new art out of things most would consider tossing in the dump.
I have a strong nature based spiritual side and also love crafting items to enhance our spiritual growth. My sister who also shares my spiritual path has lovingly created all the jewelry items on the site. The remainder of the spiritual items can be used for a variety of paths. I love creating one of a kind items, so if any of you would like unique creations let me know I’d gladly do any commissioned pieces.
I hope you all love my creations as much as I do. Each item is a one of a kind creation. They make great gifts for friends or for yourself. I love finding that perfect little gem to go in my space. And hope you guys find the perfect one. Now, since my supplies vary as to what I find, each item is unique. I will add items as often as I can so stop by frequently to see what’s new.
Thank you for helping to support my artistic vision.
Love and Blessings Joyce and Jeanet
