Hello, my Friends!

Hi again, it's Esther from The Purple Cove! Today, I want to take you behind the scenes of my creative process and share how I decide what to craft next. It's a question I get asked often, and I thought it's time to unveil the magic that happens in my workshop.

Finding Inspiration:

I often find inspiration in the changing seasons, the vibrant colors of the Pantheon, or simply by exploring different ways to use the canes that come my way. The process begins with a question I ask myself — what speaks to me today? Sometimes the answer is clear, while other times, it requires a bit of pondering.

The Love for Canes:

A significant part of my creative journey involves crafting canes. Whether I'm following tutorials or drawing from my own experience, I find immense joy in the process. Pinterest is my go-to source for inspiration, where I discover new ideas and techniques that fuel my imagination.

A Unique Approach:

One thing you might have noticed about me is that I don't like to follow the crowd. Instead, I prefer to let my imagination guide me. I create what comes to mind, steering away from trends and embracing the uniqueness of each piece.

The Color Conundrum:

​​​​​​​Choosing the right background color or the perfect cutter for a veneer can be a meticulous task. I spend a considerable amount of time pondering over these decisions, ensuring that every element complements the overall vision. More often than not, I'm thrilled with the results.

Embracing Mistakes:

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Sometimes, a project doesn't go as planned, and that's okay! The beauty of crafting is in the unexpected turns. Scrapping a project can lead to exciting discoveries and new avenues for creativity. But hey, we'll save that story for another time – stay tuned!
