My "happy place"

Do you get lost when you're creating? For me it's a magical place where time and responsibility do not exist. Problems, issues and stress fade away as I engage in the creation. All thought is on the piece in front of me, whether it be raw clay, making a necklace, raw metals, sawing, hammering or just glazing beads. It truly is a wonderful escape.

I definitely do get lost when I'm creating - I can very much relate to what you say about time "not existing" while I'm in that moment, completely absorbed in what I'm doing. This link is interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flow_(psychology)

Might have a bit of a think about this and post something on my own blog rather than take over your comments section too much!!

You are so right about getting lost in creating. It is a wonderful and magical place to be.

Beautiful bracelet and earrings.

I'm right there with Stacilouise...my house is a complete testament to how lost I get when creating ;) But oh, it's so worth it! LOL

Yep, I get totally lost in my daydreams while creating. Time goes by so fast. Hunger brings me back to reality usually!

Yes, I totally get lost in creating..... I haven't exactly been filled with a life of peace, so to me, it is a very special time where I am at peace and my focus is on creating something special. I love the bracelet and earrings!! How cool that you have now actually had your own first firing and created from that. Fantastic!!!!
