Thinking Ahead

I am frequently surprised by how my blog posts effect others, but I am occasionally even more surprised by how they effect me. Monday's inspiration post on France actually did inspire me on to something I had been thinking about.

When you are an artist, if you make holiday pieces you have to always be thinking ahead by a few months. So even though it's only August, it's time to think about Halloween. In fact I have been thinking about it for a month. I have been trying to come up with something fun and unique to make to fit the holiday. Of course there will be a bear or two, but I wanted to make something new.

Yesterday morning since I was going to go meet my friend, I had gone to bed early. My Mother didn't realize that though and called me at 4:11 am to see if we had a bad storm. She woke me out of a sound sleep. As it turned out that was a good thing.

After I talked to her, I crawled back into bed and an idea just fell out of the proverbial sky. I don't know where it came from, but when I told her about it later she said it's a good thing she woke up...if she hadn't, I might have slept through it. *Laughs*

It's very difficult to come up with something truly original that has never been done before, the best most of us can hope for is putting a unique spin on something. I think I may have figured that out.

While I am not going to tell you what my idea was just yet, I will tell you that it will be a French Noir inspired (the fashion style, not the film style) stuffed animal. It's going to be a new animal for me, but I feeling pretty confident it will turn out well.

As soon as I get the bear I am working on finished, I will get busy on drawing the pattern, so with some luck you will see the first one next week. Stay tuned!

I can't wait to see your new creation.
