My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Is creating "beautiful art" more important than the process of creating?

I don't know because I am definitely not an artsy person. Scrapbooking is the most creative thing I have ever done in my life and I'm just learning the process. I think the saying "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" is so true! I guess that is why getting comments on my layouts are so important to me. Some of the things that people point out that they like help me see what I need to focus on. I think in the process of creating that you end up creating beautiful art so they both go hand in hand. One cannot be more important than the other.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! We are going to Grayson Highlands State Park in Mouth of Wilson, VA to do some hiking finally! It has rained every weekend we have tried to go camping and hiking! We are going no matter what, rain or shine! (I've already packed the car before school and I'm leaving early!) I hope the sun shines on everyone this weekend!

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

thatis absoluty true....
it reminds me of an artist we had in germany. he put a nail in the wall and hangs his hat on - and told the world: this is art. beautiful.
hm....i think his eyes were totally different from mine :-)
