With the kind gesture of Imelda Santore, i was given the opportunity to take part in this journey which aims to present innovative and refreshing bloggers. To get acquainted with each other’s creative ways, source/s of inspiration, what keeps one on his/her toes, projects, books published or yet to be.
Thanks for the break, Imelda.
To view her charming photos and eloquently expressed thoughts about life, nature, spirituality just to name a few, you can reach Imelda at MY WORD WALL. A dedicated wife and mother, another proof that good women are not yet facing extinction. Blogging for her is like opening another window, where she fires her creativity in words and shoots grand photos shared to us and to her group, dVERSE Poets Pub.
my moment …
What am I working on?
There have been inquiries about selling my artwork and/or poems. I first joined Greeting Card Universe (GCU) before i started blogging. Then i tried out Fine Art America (FAA) and Society6 (S6) – still testing the waters. Along with the suggestion of a blogger friend to compile my pieces, my husband plans to come up with a collection of my poems with the images.
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
When i started to blog, i did not intend to be different at all. As i did not know yet what was waiting for me in the blogosphere. I followed blogs and liked many posts as i went on with my own kind of creative writing. Began doing what my family and i love most, drawing and poetry. Niching my way at WP, leaving impressions on our artwork (my kids and mine) with intellections on life, the mind, spirituality, relationships, people, society and more.
Why do I write/create what I do?
I simply like drawing, creating, coloring and writing. Sharing my realization to some, hoping it could cheer up a lonely soul or give light and pacify minds in the midst of confusion and fear.
How does my writing/creating process work?
A happy wife makes a happy mother which then results to a peaceful and happy-living family. The key to my creativity therefore, is happiness. Although there are times when i’m empathetically driven to write about adversity, other’s misfortune and abandoned children’s heartaches.
It may be odd for some, but household chores have become a source of inspiration, too. For instance while washing clothes, ideas would start to foam, while preparing meals thoughts start to percolate, while gardening and when i’m about to sleep.
I don’t draw and write my thoughts at the same time. When my words are ready, i choose which image would go well with it. Sometimes i use my children’s sketches (old and new) at times i use mine or my husband’s drawings and photos.
