about me

 

Hello! I’m Cornel and I blog about things that inspire me, things I’ve made and Craft Share, the craft group I started in 2009.

You'll find lots of crochet on my blog, as well as my crochet and sewing projects for Ideas Magazine, since September 2011.

creativity is my thing

and Keri Smith wrote this book that's definitely

at the top of my wishlist!

Besides Wreck this journal, she's also written

How to be an Explorer of the World –the Portable Life/Art Museum,

The Guerilla Art Kit, Mess: A Manual of Accidents and Mistakes, Living Out Loud – Activities to Fuel a Creative Life,

Tear up this Book! :The Sticker, Stencil, Stationery, Games, Crafts, Doodle, And Journal Book For Girls!

and Finish this Book.

Her newest book, The Pocket Scavenger is out now.

Just read this cool quote she posted on her blog a while ago:

"Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting, hoping for some easy way out, struggling, grasping,…Stop it and just DO!…

Don’t worry about cool, make your own uncool. Make your own, your own world. If you fear, make it work for you – draw & paint your fear and anxiety…

You must practice being stupid, dumb, unthinking, empty. Then you will be able to DO!…

Try to do some BAD work – the worst you can think of and see what happens but mainly relax and let everything go to hell – you are not responsible for the world – you are only responsible for your work – so DO IT. And don’t think that your work has to conform to any preconceived form, idea or flavor. It can be anything you want it to be…" - excerpted from a letter from Sol Lewitt to Eva Hesse.
