Word of the Week: Create

We had a busy weekend of arts: 
music and dance.

We also had a busy weekend in regards to technology.
My spouse discovered that if he started my old Mac Pro in "pram" it stopped acting strange. 

I also purchased an inexpensive Canon Zoom Lens 5x for 79 dollars; 
I decided not to wait until I can get what I want.

Last week, our Word of the Week was "whimsy".
What a lovely word to keep in mind all the time; I did not want to leave it behind.

From Merriam Webster Dictionary's this week our word is "create".



 verb \krē-ˈāt, ˈkrē-ˌ\
: to make or produce (something) : to cause (something new) to exist
: to cause (a particular situation) to exist
: to produce (something new, such as a work of art) by using your talents and imagination

This week I'm going to explore  the word "create", and at the end of the week, I will feature some of my creative followers with their permission.

 Children just naturally create.  I found a heart hung in one of the wreaths.

I found cut up paper on the floor, beneath the blanket that my mom knitted many years ago.

Here is something that I drew, but because it was ephemeral, I finished.

 But if  the image is on canvas, it is uncompleted.  I have a number of these leaning against the wall uncompleted.  There is some magic and imagination to creating, but the soul is missing when I don't finish.

 This project was my daughter's idea, and we made it together.


  1. I just LOVE all of your creations Sue! Love! xoxo Jen

  2. Sweet! and that blanket your mom made is so impressive! What beautiful work - and I'm a knitter/crocheter/embroiderer/needlepointer so I know that was a ton of effort.


    1. Thank you, Anne. She does all the same crafts as you mentioned. I can't believe how even her work is.
