Creatures sound a little wrong. I just wasn't sure what to call a cat, a bird, and a deity surrounded by a lucky penny, a quartz crystal, and a tumbled carnelian.
I have them sitting on my desk to remind me of things. Ganesha, of the Divine I would like to bring to my art, and the carnelian for ceativity. The bluebird of happiness given me by a friend is a reminder that I am supported to bring happiness to my work by friends and others. The glass cat is one my father had to remind him of me; now I am reminded of him and all those who have gone before and how they cheered me on with m y artworks. The quartz crystal is for power, the po wer to do true and powerful pieces. Lastely, I have my luck y penny there beccause everyone needs a little luck.
Do you have things that remind or su pport you in your art or other endeavors? What are they ?
