Last year I read a quote by Malcolm Gladwell in a blog post by Steven Ford. "The game is what you catch, not what you spill." I found it helpful to repeat this to myself while working through my project design for Cynthia Tinapple's upcoming book. How often have I slowed my progress because I've been afraid to spill?
So much good, more than just the project design, came from my new debris pile and many mistakes over the past 3 months. These earrings and others will be showing up in the coming weeks, I think, as new ideas coalesce.
