It's a bittersweet ending to this year long project. What now? I hope to see the release of many new products in my line, plus I hope to start on a couple of new creative books. In addition I have a couple of creative projects planned. The first is to offer a step-by-step tutorial for making your own Carmex jars this coming year. My intention is to offer one tutorial each month for 2013. Details will be posted here and on my Facebook pages and Twitter (under "Lisa Pavelka") in the next few weeks.
Another project I will be embarking on is a "Random Acts of Creativity" endeavor. I will be making small works of art using a variety of mediums and techniques. These will be left in random places where I live and throughout the world as I travel. Whoever finds these can do whatever they wish with them (add to a chain for a necklace, use as an ornament, etc.) They will be attached to large lobster clasps or phone charm lanyards. Finders will be able to voluntarily leave their thoughts on what finding these tiny treasures mean to them. Each piece will be numbered and photographed before it is left. Any comments received will be posted to my "Creative Musings," blog (where I also post pictures artwork and creative journeys).
I made this very last (of 366 lids) in tribute to the new year. Foil covered polymer clay is formed into spiral streamers that appear to burst into the sky. Foil in vibrant colors also grace polymer clay that covers the rim.
It is my sincere hope that you've enjoyed the blog project as much as I had making it. This site will stay up indefinitely and be linked to my other sites and pages. Feel free to stop back and visit anytime for inspiration or updates on new DIY lid tutorials. I appreciate all the support and encouragement I have received throughout the year from so many of you! This little project grew in ways I had never envisioned as the year whizzed by. Now that it's complete and I achieved the goal of creating a new artwork for each day of 2012, I expect the buzz to continue in ways I can scarcely imagine. Most of all, I hope this endeavor will inspire you to live your life more creatively. Always Keep Art in Your Heart!
