Know More, See More, Do More

Today as I was looking again at images I took of an Izannah Walker doll long ago, I saw something I couldn't "see" back then, because I hadn't learned some things. I've learned more since then, and I can see more. One of the reasons I can see more, is that doing a presentation on Izannah Walker dolls helped me solidify and reinforce what I've already learned. And in preparing, I began to see patterns I hadn't seen before. 

I've been a teacher, so this really isn't new information. But it's easy to get caught in certain patterns, and forget how much learning comes from "doing" of some sort. I can dream all I want (I call it "research"), but eventually putting your knowledge into some kind of format helps you learn more. 

I've collected a lot of "research" items - sometimes they are called "inspiration".  It's time to put a pause on the research and inspiration phase and do more creating.
