History in Your Hands
I have been creative all my life.
We all are. I truly believe this. It just manifests in different talents, abilities and interests. But the Creative Impulse--it is one thing that we all have in common.
This ability--to make something out of nothing--for me, manifests in a visual material sense. Always has...
I give a lot of credit to early influences-- we did not have a lot of extra money when I was growing up. But my parents did make sure that we had plenty of bits and bobs to "make" with. And a lot of freedom to make what we liked.
Paper. Fabric. Yarn. Pens and Pencils. Wood and Paint. Beads. You name it--it was all there waiting for you.
The best feeling of all was waking up on a cold, rural Illinois Saturday morning and opening up the craft closet and wondering, "what do I want to make today?" Ahhhh....
My Georgia Grannie called it "messin' and gommin'"
I call it Fun.
I it Love.
I call it Life.
I love everything that is colorful, fun and heartfelt.
I love all that is handmade. All that is human.
I love vintage. Things that have been loved and have lived in the past.
It's our history. Our legacy.
I invite you to play with me in my Etsy shop.
From my hands to yours...
My name is Leslie. My nickname is "La La" and I live in Los Angeles. Which CAN be a little like "La-La Land." I also live in the Creative Realm that I cultivate here, on my Etsy shop.
A kiss and a peck and a hug around the neck. For each of you!
