I’ve been learning alot in my 3D doll class. And not just about making dolls. I am learning (again…and again…and again…) that doing is important. I think alot. I have brilliant ideas (well, according to me, lol). I start alot of things. But sometimes I think just thinking about things is enough. Its the fun part and very satisfying. But I am learning (again) that doing, while it may not be the instant gratification of ideas, teaches in a whole different way. It is like the difference between a quick, delicious but unsustaining snack and a deeply satisfying meal made with love and precision and mindfulness. Snacks have their place but they are not a substitute for meals!
It also teaches me about me and fear, persistence, frustration, etc… And getting to the other side.
I have been enjoying making selfcare dolls for me and J. It ties in to the previous class on Dollmaking as a Transformative Art
. Having a visual, tangible reminder of how I want to experience life and take care of myself is helpful. I get lost in my head sometimes.
I will try to post here on a more regular basis. until next time, I hope you are happy and creating and enjoying life.
