The Muse Has Landed

OK...I wanted to tell you a little story about my creative process inside my Magical Mango Studio --and in the midst of it I realized that this Blogger.com site has inconvenient quirks...therefore...the sequence of my story is out of order...or is it? Well I figured we might as well have some fun with this...so I numbered the entries-- Hey...it works out even better -- now it's a game! So whether you choose to read the entries "as is" -- or scroll up and down to read in chronological order of 1-5...(whew! I got a little dizzy doing that) -- please enjoy...have fun! Writing this has been a blast -- and sharing it here...quirks and all...is my pleasure. Let the games begin!
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
5.)--OK..so the Bead Soup has simmered and it's ready to be served up. Ideas find their way through Intuition into my hands...by way of my Muse who's tapping me on the shoulder...guiding me...whispering in my ear saying.. "it's time...let's do this...now!" She's swirling all around me; so I take heed and begin playing with design possibilities...arranging and rearranging my jewels...a pearl here, new jade there ...chrysophrase chips in between...ahh, such beauty is being woven together. It feels good to be in the flow of my creative bliss - I give thanks...the muse has landed!

In this picture I was in the midst of designing the Artfully Yours necklace --So there it is --a day in the life...of "the beading muse"... figuratively speaking of course -- this dance can last a number of days, or weeks.

Wow Cheryl! What fun your blog site is! I liked having your story out of order. I got to run around a lot. :) I love your writing style. You have a lotta style sistah! And that vision statement! Wow... I love it!

I have only one question. How in the world do you keep your studio so neat?!?! :))

Hi Karen,
Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked the "run around" game with my story being "not" in chrono order! Thank you for your glowing compliments & appreciation! And yes, Malcoom & his VISION Statement is AWESOME!! As for my neat studio, currently it's my main "haven" in the house, since I'm in the long process of redecorating the rest of the house, which isn't so neat...so I do my best to keep the studio "haven-like".
