The Process of Creation

It is something we all experience, especially as scrapbookers. We each have our own unique way of capturing what we want in our work. I was lucky enough to capture my son's creative process. Every year, we try to make a new decoration. This year, we made ceramic ornaments. As my son has gotten older, his process has evolved and become more precise. January Sketch

His hands were literally a blur of motion. I realized I had captured this in several photos. So I used one to zoom in on his blurry hand. The rest of him is however, quite still and serious. he takes each step with complete, yet haphazard precision. It resulted in a gorgeous poinsettia ornament that I am proud to showcase.

I enjoy capturing these moments with him. I know his creative process will continue to evolve. However, as he gets older, I wonder how often I will be privy to it. Either way, I will always enjoy the results of his labors.
