New ideas: Bughouse

Just putting this down in a place that's not only somewhere I'll look at later but is public (& therefore holds me accountable), my blog.

I had a dream/vision last night that I was at a craft fair selling my work (jewelry & plush) with a line that was entirely insect-based. The banner I had was labeled "The Bughouse" (a dream-reference to HAJ's private blog?). I specific item I held in my hands was a black/gold bee necklace strung on black ribbon with gold threads running through it. This looked nothing like anything I've ever made.

I've been considering little pieces of this, but my dream had it on a much larger scale. I'm planning to pursue this—does Heather mind if I use that shop name? I'm sure I can come up with another, but it fits well!

A recent book purchase, "Creative Time and Space: Making Room for Making Art " just came in the mail on Saturday and I started reading it—one of the earlier tips on trying to find time for your art in the book is that when you are considering ideas throughout your day, epiphanies may come in your dreams.


  1. I LOVE the idea!! Go to it, woman!

  2. Never go against what the dreams tell you to do. You have no choice now but to become the bughouse lady

  3. Thanks, Heather!! I have gone for it—the artfire site is set up. Now, I just need to MAKE some bugs.

    Monkey, so you want a plush Naked Lunch-style typewriter cockroach? It's not getting an anus, if that's what you're hoping for. That's stepping across my personal line.


I appreciate the time you've spent reading my post and would love to read your comments!
