Here we are navigating our way through alphabet land in the A-to-Z blogging challenge and today we’re visiting the letter Y. I’m creating a manifesto of things I believe and that delight me, based on unusual words. Let me introduce you to an effervescent friend, the word yeasty.
Yeasty: “exuberantly creative; full of productivity, vitality, restless energy”
Isn’t that a fabulous concept? I know and love that state of being, and it delights me even more having a name for it.
It just so happens I’m in a yeasty period right now. It often occurs with the onset of Spring – just as the outside world is ramping up its creative production, so too am I. The Muses have camped out by my side and are whispering all manner of exciting ideas. They’re encouraging me to learn more, research more, play more, write more, all the while giving me assignments in the studio and inspiring me to look at bits and bobs with new eyes. Beads paired with twigs – why YES, why didn’t I think of that before? Watercolors dripped with beeswax – of course! And while we’re at it, let’s press in some bits of moss. Create miniature bouquets from vintage glass beads – certainly! Why not add some essential oils to the tiny container and set it on the sunny window so I can have fragrant flowers while waiting for my garden to catch up? What about folding a book from that vintage 4-inch-wide ribbon? Wouldn’t that be the perfect place to try binding in those tiny papers I created with wire netting infrastructure? Welcome to creative chaos and the joys of experiencing yeasty magic.
Is there ever a more exciting time than when inspired and creating with yeasty abandon? I welcome more of that in my life always.
What about you? Feeling yeasty? What’s lighting you up? Is a new creative project calling you? Suddenly have an urge to bake some bread with all this talk of yeast? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
