Booking It For Later Referral…

It’s always an excellent idea for creative people to keep a record of their work. I did it every now and again over the years, and am now disappointed that I didn’t do it more often. So many things got given away as gifts, on occasion to people I lost touch with when my intended three month trip to Europe became some twenty-six years and counting. Life happens, people move around, circumstances change and some people are very special to you in a specific moment in time, other remain friends for the duration, some are something in-between the two.

Keeping a record of your artist work is a brilliant idea, it can show you how far you have come from your early days, it can inspire or re-inspire you to visit a certain topic, remind you of people far away, or passed away, of moment in time that shaped your future or future self. If you sell your work it’s also a brilliant display case of what’s available and possible and can generate income! In this post, dedicated to fellow weaver Lulu from: “Lulu’s Musings: Weaving together the threads of life” is one that she will especially appreciate, after all, a book of beautiful woven creations, Both for Lulu and us…. what’s not to love?

  1. And now we have blogging as an option for record keeping, too 😀

    • mosaicthinking,
      Welcome to my blog. Yes Indeed, I completely agree that Blogging is also for record keeping. I have a Category that I just call “My Reference Library” exactly for this 🙂

      Inside are photographs that inspired me in some way, maybe colour, texture, shape ot form… they are all things I think I would want to find again in amongst photographs from 10 years daily blogging.

      Once my drawing takes off again I will also post my efforts so that one day I can compare progress (that’s still quite a way off lol !)

      Your blog features the kind of sewing I’d love to be able to do.. sadly sewing even a straight line is almost beyond me (no alas …I’m really not joking).

      You have real talent. It’s also nice to keep track of items you have given as gifts, and in the case of children’s clothes it’s almost a record of their growth over the years.

      I look forward to visiting your blog more frequently in the future. Regards… kiwi 🙂
