When I was in school I never understood the hub bub about process. My art and design instructors went on and on about it, and I just never got it.

Pftt. When you're a 'young adult' who cares about process? I sure as heck didn't. Then again, I'm fairly certain that their idea of 'process' was just proof that I'd done the required amount of homework, or a deliberate creative routine I was supposed to follow.

Now I see it as a celebration of the act of creation. It's embracing the joy of making.

I love the process of creating. I love seeing how other people create. For me the actual making can be as rewarding as the resulting works.

Anywho, here are my seasonal gals in the process of being made...


  1. I was the same in art school, art process to me at that time was the equivalent of showing your work in math class only more fun :)

    I was so focused on the end result and trying to reach deadlines that the process was lost on me. Now it's play time, the chance to try something new, push boundaries and advance my skills.

    I'm loving the moody quality of your new gals

  2. Oooh, I love these!! Thanks for sharing. :)

    It's strange, but it really depends on what I'm making. When it comes to knitting, it's about the process, the act of knitting. I guess dance is like that for me to. It's the act of dancing, not the performance, that makes it for me. Sewing and drawing? Way more focused on the result. I wonder why that is?
