Long and Winding Road

Life’s like that: a series of twists and turns where you end up in an unexpected place.

Maybe it makes you laugh, maybe you feel frightened by what you cannot predict. Sometimes life takes you to a place you’ve never been before that feels like it’s home. Or perhaps you wander into a dead-end alley and have to figure out a new path, retracing steps and wondering “how did I get here?”

Like the bestLong Winding Road custom snow globe, Camryn Forrest Designs 2015 short stories, and maybe the best novels and best lives, often the journey has a long and winding road, one where you can’t see the beginning and the end along the way, but one that takes you exactly where you need to be. Or when you finally reach that spot that feels like home and you wonder: what took me so long to find this place? Not knowing … ah, keeps it interesting that way.

Or as the wise philosopher Buckaroo Bonzai said, “where ever you go, that’s where you’ll be.”

 

 

 

 

“Long Winding Road” one of a kind custom snow globe, with clay stone steps, vintage toys and jewelry findings in a liquid-filled glass globe. When shaken, the liquid swirls with hopes and dreams, love and loss, and a few sparkles and iridescent hearts. All designs and images copyright (c) 2015 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA.

Chill ….

Remember that feeling, so peaceful, that you imagine your thoughts are gently carried on a cool breeze?

CHILL snow globe, Camryn Forrest Designs, 2015
Let the world swirl around you, while you sit back and … chill.

 

Chill: original hand sculpted clay head, with a headdress of clear and iridescent cubed beads to suggest ice. Wood base painted with layers of metallic paint to create a faux patina with touches of “frost.” When shaken, the globe’s liquid fills with shimmering flecks of iridescent particles, swirling like an ice storm, while the peaceful face remains … chill.¬† All designs and images copyright (c) 2015 Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Colorado USA
