Beading and Brain Surgery

Blogged under Around the Web,Jewelry Designing by Tammy on Saturday 13 September 2008 at 5:48 pm


You’ve probably hear the phrase “it isn’t brain surgery” whenever you talk about something that is not all that difficult to do. This came to mind when Sharon from “A Little Something” commented on my About.com Jewelry Making Forum about how intense her friends looked at her home while working on jewelry and related tasks.

They had gathered to help her out since making jewelry is just part of the whole jewelry job, and after viewing the pictures taken that day, she noticed how everyone – no matter who they are or what they are doing – look so serious and emersed in whatever they are doing. Do we all look like this when crafting?

I pulled out a picture my sister took of me making jewelry. Now, this shot was take on purpose to use as a promotional image, but still, I look like I’m about ready to put on the rubber gloves and pick up a scalpel.

Do you have a picture of yourself in the “creative zone”? I’d love to see other craft bloggers post them on their blogs. If you do, leave the link in the comments section so we can all gaze at your furrowed brow!

    At least you don’t stick out your tongue when you’re concentrating!!! I’ve been caught so many times – in deep concentration with my tongue peeking out of my mouth. It must give me that extra creative juice!

    It is so great to see a photo of you…to put a face to the name!
    I would not dare post a picture of myself right now….humidity and me do not get along!

    Well, this was taken after my sister sat on me and slathered me with pounds of make-up!

    Nikki – I’m sure the tongue has some kind of connection to your creativity! I have seen a lot of people do that too now that you mention it.

    I think you look kind of serene, Tammy. At least you don’t have your jaw clenched the way I do. I’ve posted a couple of pics of me In the Zone.
