Relationship thoughts and a little fairy...
If I am ever in another relationship (and if I one day marry someone) whoever I am with will have to be supportive of my odd artistic whims. This includes being aware that he may walk into a room and see me resting on my back, on the floor, with my camera above my head just because there happens is a perfect patch of sunshine coming through a nearby window. He will have to be okay with the fact that I still read children's books aloud to myself sometimes and that I often wake up randomly in the middle of the night to jot down inspiration that has come in a dream. Lastly, he will have to be able to at least smile at my creative whims even when such times include the fact that I am a grown adult making a fairy home.
In the meantime, I am positively fine with the fact that I have such whims and I have wonderfully supportive family that simply smiles when I bring home a thrift store find and proclaim it is the perfect fairy house. I do not need a relationship to be joyful and creative in my life, but today I realized once again that if I am ever in another relationship it is vital that whoever I am with is supportive of my creativity and my love of children and childlike things.
Now, after that bit of rambling, back to the fairy house!
Today while thrift store shopping I came across what seemed to be a candle holder in the shape of a strawberry house. I immediately thought it looked like just the place a fairy would call home. So, I spent part of this afternoon creating a tiny fairy and a little piece of property for her strawberry house to rest upon. I named the little fairy Arunima. I carpeted her home with red felt, gave her a puff of smoke for her chimney, and a lovely little garden/yard where she can enjoy having picnics. She has a hand crocheted picnic blanket, blue button plates, and a bit of yummy fairy food. Her wings and hair glimmer with pixie dust and her dress is of the finest petals. All in all, I had a truly wonderful time with this creative whim. It was a grand way to spend the beginning of this three day weekend.
Thoughts to ponder-
Do you have interesting creative whims?
Are you ever creative in more "childish" ways?
