When I was a child, the only things I wanted to play with were paper, scissors, colors, glue, tape ... Today, in my 60s, I still want to play with those things.
The creative side of me crept into my careers in sales and producing expositions and special events. Even though I don't create for a living now, I seem to be driven just as much.
There aren't too many mediums I haven't attempted, but my loves today are acrylics, jewelry, mixed media, and papier collage mosaics. I wish I could make myself work with just one thing, but that will never happen.
I always said writing would be my last career. I am in heaven when someone trust me with their life story. I combine writing and art and produce their stories in a beautiful, hand-bound book.
I also believe very strongly in positive thinking and affirmations. I write affirmations for people ... to help with every thing from sickness to a new baby to depression ... and produce them in artsy books. Affirmations work!
