Creativity Connected

I love the fact that we live in a vast world rich with diversity, color and creativity.
There's a never ending abundance of artforms for our enjoyment and use.
I am constantly amazed by the talent of others, those things which inspire them,
the mediums they choose and the unique outcome of their endeavors.
Today I have some gorgeous results to show you of what can 
happen when two totally separate forms of creativity come 
together to make some truly beautiful artistic design.
I have the most exquisite cookies for you to see,
 along with the two completely different sources of 
creative genius that it took coming together to create them.
First, let's talk about that delightful shimmering gold
 buffalo check pattern that's on these delectable cookies.
  Every artist must have the perfect set of tools and oftentimes 
the tools themselves are works of art, in and of themselves,
such as those required to make the various motifs
you'll see pictured on the cookies throughout this post.
This gorgeous work was accomplished by using a variety of 
 precision laser cut cookie stencils by Stencil Revolution.
This fantastic company is a small, family-owned operation based in
 sunny Spring Hill, Florida, where every item is made to perfection, 
packaged with great care and shipped on time.
This takes a team of people who put their heart and soul into it.
That's what I love about a family run business, they work hard together
to give every step of the process their personal touch, ensuring that each
 customer reaps the benefits of their creativity and cohesive teamwork.
You can see their happy faces and read their story right here.
You can't get such detailed results unless the stencils
 are cut by someone with an artistic eye who also 
cares about putting out the best product possible.
Just look at those magnificent scales on the mermaid tails
 that were achieved by using the Fish Scale Cookie Stencil.
And look at the detailed woodgrain pattern of the
How fun would it be to create your very own beach themed 
party with the use of these spectacular stencils?! 
The possibilities are endless!
They have so many more fantastic stencils for things other than cookies too.
Like the breathtaking Mandala Stencils that come in different styles and sizes.
There are two of these beauties that are my very favorites.
 Probably because they remind me of giant crocheted doilies.
My absolute first favorite is the Harmony Mandala
 but I also really, really love the Bliss Mandala.
Okay, so is it the whole crochet connection for me,
or am I just feeling the peaceful vibes from the thought of 
painting some harmony and bliss into my daily life...?
I think I just might find out in the future because I'm already
scoping out an area and dreaming of the colors...
One other stencil that I really love and already have is the
  I plan to show it to you in an upcoming post in the early Autumn,
 once I've done something completely awesome with it.
I have it in an 18"x12" size. As with the Mandala's, 
all of their stencils are available in several different sizes.
As for the cookie artist who worked her magic
 on these over the top, sweet confections, 
that would be my extremely talented sister, Bridget.
Nobody can take a little of this, a little of that
add a pinch of sugar here and there and end up with 
something that will enchant all of the senses like she can.
She's as remarkable as Mary Poppins with her bag full of goodies.
This world of ours is a truly astonishing place.
For all it's great breadth of many cultures and people,
we continue to find sensational new ways every day 
to connect to one another so beautifully,
 so perfectly, and sometimes even magically, 
in our own individual forms of creativity.
It connects us heart to heart across all boundaries.
 Sometimes it takes your work of art in
order for me to make my form of magic.
 Now tell me that's not a fantastic design.

"Creative collaboration is awesome."
Alicia Silverstone

"Creativity is just connecting things.
When you ask creative people how they did something,
they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it,
they just saw something.
It seemed obvious to them after a while."
Steve Jobs
