Talking about craft areas

I thought I’d look at some inspiring and happy craft areas… this is what I found to share:

A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment
a single man contemplates it,
bearing within him the image of a cathedral.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
The Little Prince.

Life beats down and crushes the soul;
and art reminds you that you have one.
Stella Adler

There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot,
but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence,
transform a yellow spot into sun.”
Pablo Picasso

If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’
then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Vincent Van Gogh

Creativity is knowing how to hide your sources
Albert Einstein

You can’t use up creativity.
The more you use, the more you have.
Maya Angelou

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.

Every child is an artist,
the problem is staying an artist when you grow up.

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
