Introduction: Klara's Korner

     What inspires me to create is the circumstances life brings to me. Lately, I worked on an AWANA Grand Prix Car that was a TRON Lightcycle! (I won first place for design!) My mom took me to Jo-Anns’ to get the supplies, and I looked up a bunch of pictures so I could get it as accurate as possible.

     I’m also just completing a 3D church for another competition I am involved in, with cardboard as a base, and several different types of paper to accent the look I’m going for. A good, wide open workspace is vital to a successful project, as are tools. I have two solid wood desks that I take over for more expansive projects.
     I always try to keep my “zone” as organized as possible so I can find almost any tool I need at my fingertips. I keep my eyes open for any new gadgets to expand my collection, and frequently find little things to aid with future projects such as plastic, fabric, string, paper, cardboard, and a plethora of other fun mediums to make the job easier.
     A clean workspace, great tools, and some good snacks :) are an integral part of a successful (and awesome!) project.

Ha Ha! I'm constantly fighting the urge to keep things like fabric,string,paper,etc,etc. But I did have a cardboard barrel I called my "crafts barrel" (real creative,huh?) that was full of stuff I bought because it was bright and shiny and I thought I'd use one day. I sew also, so these purchases were "justified". I love the color of paper bags, and I've had to force myself to throw away the few I've come across. But it was made easier by the fact that I already have at least 3 rolls of brown kraft paper, which may end up being paper beads. I think this may be an adddiction hiding behind "creativity". I can think of "something" to do with almost anything!

I have a container like that, too! I throw anything I think might be useful in a future project in there. Needless to say, it's full now. LOL :)
