You can’t wait for inspiration… 5 quotes that have helped me have the courage to be creative.

craft markets, creative inspiration, fun stuff

It’s incredibly difficult to be a trail blazer. When there’s no road map to follow, the temptation is to stay safe, do what you know, but that’s not an artistic option. An artist can’t follow a pattern. The item may be hand-made, may be beautiful; however, the piece lacks the spark of uniqueness if it’s someone else’s idea.

What any artist needs is the courage and endurance to try and keep trying without loosing heart. The first attempt may be great; more likely it will need further refinement, so another experiment begins until the masterpiece is born.

These are some phrases that have help me through those difficult days when all I wanted to do was throw the paint, glass, computer, ect… in the bin and eat chocolate.
