Taking Notes......

      Imagination and All Things Weird....
Dreams are definitely one of the perks to a good nights sleep...well they are unless you ate half a cheesecake before bed and the sugar demons are striking back with a nightmare or two!  I find that I need to keep a pad and paper next to my bed because my best ideas come to me in my sleep or the calmness of the late night...even a PODD slug named "Slim" came to me from a dream!

Dreams are so important to my creative spirit and when my health drives me back to my bed for a few days I always go with the anticipation that new characters will envolve from this set-back!  Talk about putting a positive spin of things huh?   

In the last few days my sketching and notes have been on "Hyper-drive"...okay, tell me why NOW?  Why couldn't this blast of creativity come to me months ago when time wasn't at its most crucial!  Maybe I have that type of personality that does better under pressure.  WELL, I DON'T LIKE IT!!!!!  Just since Monday I have created a new witch (that I love) a new pumkinhead, and a whole slew of "pumpkin tarts" (don't ask)....the tarts are not what you are thinking re: a tart...remember dreams? LOL!  Even my mice have taken on a whole new look!

Creativity keeps me young and full of spirit and I thank the "Powers that Be" for this most outstanding gift!  Never take anything for granted....when you can find humor or beauty in the  simplest part of life you are gifted!  Our humor keeps us grounded and our creativity keeps us inspired!

Oh, Pam, your creations are just wonderful! You never cease to bring amazement to our world!
Food of ANY kind too late brings on the nightmares for me but the result is not clever creativity. I'm usually running for my life and doing mounds of dishes, LOL!!!
