Friday, January 15, 2010 start something new

Hi friends,
These little spoon girls are waiting for dresses, hair anything really. Anything to just get off the shelf and begin a new life elsewhere.........................

It is amazing how one can be desperate to start a new life or at least make a big change somewhere else or something new to pursue. To do something out of the ordinary away from the known, to something more exciting.
I was thinking about this today as I was drinking yet another cup of tea whilst I was working in the studio today. I was reminded of some words I read recently and naturally I have completely forgotten them exactly, but let's pretend this was them: "Do that which makes you scared".

Ralph Waldo Emerson also said something similar:
"Always do what you are afraid to do."

SO this is my challenge over the next month -
I am going to try and jump off the deep end, leave safe waters and really do something new.



  1. well remember to put on a life jacket - none of those philosophers excepted you to jump without a net?

  2. good advice ... important to take risks some times
    thanks for sharing

  3. Bravo!
    One of the things I always tell me students is the answer is always "YES!" ...."yes, that worked", or "yes, I've learned something because that didn't work". Either way, the answer is YES!
    Wish i could have a cup of tea, or two with you Elizabeth. I think it would be great fun!
    I'll be anxious to see what you come up with!

  4. You are so right E!! Nothing ventured nothing gained!!!! Can't wait to see what you wonderful spoons become- sure to be exciting!!!
