studio friday/creative roots


mom,aunt b & aunt j photographed by becky fierberg

my creative roots run deep,my mom sat for hours with
us drawing,coloring,cutting & pasteing...i watched her in awe,
at her singer with miles of fabric,pins and thread...i still sit
in wonder and amazement at the things she creates and the
ease in which she does it.she and her sisters,my aunts,between
the three of them there is nothing they can't do...creatively,
masterfully,lovingly.
my dad is also cut from artful cloth...his real passion is

photography but he can work wood,play a mean acoustic guitar
and has a beautiful voice,OH!and way great penmanship!
my paternal grandma crocheted like nobody's business and
could wield glue and the thousands of seashells collected on the
gulf shore into fascinating boxes,cones and orbs...and cut a
really great paperdoll!
mom's mom,who just turned 100 still sews for a cause...
birthright,and bakes the most delicious cookies for the holiday
hoards.
i am so lucky and so inspired!

thanks studio friday for jogging my memory!
