- There's no correlation between creativity and equipment ownership. None. Zilch. Nada. Actually, as the artist gets more into his thing, and as he gets more successful, his number of tools tends to go down. He knows what works for him. Expending mental energy on stuff wastes time.
It's a good thing to be able to play with my things and know how to use them. Now to resist those horrendous new things that come down the pike. Things like Heidi Swapp rub ons. What possessed demon ever thought those things were going to work? Things like the circle scissor. That's one tool that I gladly threw in the trash. It doesn't work!!
In other areas...I'm watching the news about the most recent California fires. It amazes me that people are wondering why the fire is so hot. It completely makes me want to shout DUH at the screen. People are building in fire areas, providing fuel for future fires, and they are being stupid with their landscaping. People aren't clearing their brush away from their homes. People don't get it. To find out that these fires were potentially set on purpose is awful. How could someone do that?
Tomorrow I go off to NYC for the weekend. YAY!
I may shop for purses!
