It was late last night, my eyes wanting to close, when the last piece of this ornament came together. Woke up this morning to a bit of a jumbled mess of felt and thread from putting the finishing touches on it a little later than I should have. There was determination in me to complete it, not quite enough to clean up after.
I chose the word "bold" because I thought it paired well with all of the elements of the ornament. To me it means to stand out. Being unique in color, theme, materials, technique are just a couple of ways we get to be bold with our creativity.
