I come from a long lineage of Metis artists, artisans, and seamstresses, and I enter the Northern Lodge's "Golden Years," I enjoy sharing the teachings I received with the younger generations. Being raised to the sound of a sewing machine, loom weaving and needle work feeds the creative spirit in ways that stays with one for a lifetime.
I personally would be very miserable if my art and craft supplies were ever to disappear. There is no such thing as idle hands in my existence. There is always something wanting to be created for someone’s pleasure, be it from beads, paint, fabric, or writing. In my eyes, creating is among the most enjoyable activities in life! Watching something emerge from a thought, an idea, or a stack of random objects into an heirloom, a gift, a masterpiece, or just something fun to produce is a privilege and a blessing. It doesn’t have to be perfect when it comes from the heart… and carries positive thoughts, healing energy, blessings and spirituality woven into it. The only thing better than creating, is teaching it to the next generation. That’s what being an artist and artisan is all about.
