what’s YOUR TYPE ?

So, that’s all for the personal ads. Ok, that’s actually all for now period. I have probably a hundred more designs on paper just waiting to come to life! Wait, if I built it, they will come…isn’t that how that goes? Hmmmm…

I hope y’all have enjoyed what you’ve seen so far. Sooooo, do all of you want to know more about each of these pieces and see more pics of them??? YES, Dawn, of course we do! I knew it! Ok good, cause that’s this coming week’s posts, so put on them reading classes, curl up and get ready to be entertained.

If you hadn’t realized it from my crafty wording in the personal ads, I’d also like to mention that all of these pieces need a happy caring home. The upcoming posts will include dimensions and prices. The price does not include shipping as these pieces are quite hefty, and I’d have to look deeper into shipping costs per piece. I am currently living in the metro NY area rooming with all of these sexy singles, so pickup/delivery is definitely an option to the surrounding areas/states.

And for those of you only seeing this on the Facebook, go to www.creativerebirth.net to view them all together. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Seriously, I don’t lie.
(And please type in your email address to follow my blog if you’d like, so you don’t miss out on new posts!)

I would so love to hear your feedback….Which piece is your favorite???? (Feel free to include ‘Dawn’ in your answer ;) )

A sexy talented blue-eyed furniture designer. I’m sure that’s enough to peak your interest, but I’ll keep going…I’ve been in love with designing furniture for 13 years now, but I’ve been holding back, afraid that it would never be able to reciprocate that love. I would get back together with this passion for a few months and then run away again, leaving my sketches to collect dust on my bookshelf and hiding my models under my bed. Sadly, this has been a fairly regular on-and-off occurrence for the past 13 years. Now, I see that this relationship is meant to be – it needs to be. We can’t pretend any longer.

Three months ago, I left my secure well-paid full-time Manhattan job and city life in seek of my true self. I had misplaced it (and misused it) in order to survive a hectic, stressful lifestyle in NYC. Until my body started warning me through its aches and pains and shortness of breath; and my mind just wasn’t keeping up like it used to; and my heart…well, that had been shut down for quite some time. Even with all of this, it was still not an easy change, but also not as hard as you may think when it was truly the right thing for me. So these past 6 months of healing, exploring, self-loving have brought me back, once again, to my furniture design passion (not really shocking at all)…

Do you want to hear about how this passion came to be? Ok, I’ll tell you. My first piece (“My Baby”) was designed and built in my last year of college (talk about crappy timing to learn that I loved something else when I was already fully committed to Interior Design). The moment that I watched Tom (awesome shop guy) put that chunk of laminated plywood through the band saw, I was hooked (insert image of an old Looney Tunes cartoon where Bugs Bunny’s heart beats outside his chest). And that’s when I knew the bottom of that table would be exactly that – plywood – yet much bigger and heavier and all hand-carved by yours truly. By the way, doesn’t all of this woodworking business make me sound even sexier? Call me!

So that piece was magical to me. It was a challenging design, yet every piece fit together perfectly. Because I put my heart and soul into it! I spent countless hours sanding and grinding and mocking up and finishing each piece. And I had not enjoyed anything that much in a long time (other than getting drunk with friends, but you know what I mean). I had discovered something huge inside myself that is still living in there to this day and man, is it ready to ply! Get it?

I hope that you all have enjoyed my creative awesomeness and will come back for more as I continue to share. Your comments, suggestions, praise are all appreciated through either social media or email at rebirthisrad@gmail.com.

 

 

 

somebody REALLY wanted me to start this BLOG

froggy 2

I just came across this gem in my phone and had to share. I was in FL with my boyfriend shortly after leaving Omega and one night after dinner out, came back to find this guy on the door of the place we stayed.

Go ahead, just try to tell me these frogs don’t have some mad significance for me  ;)

Look at him, is he trying to get my attention, OR WHAT?

let’s create TOGETHER

Creative Rebirth is about bringing creativity back. I’ll be sharing some of my creative genius with you which I’ve been holding back for way too long…this shit soooo needs to come out!! My intention is also to inspire others to do the same…to let their true self out into the world through creativity which is essential to everyone’s well-being and happiness. Good thing creativity comes in a million different forms, so there is definitely something for everyone. You just might not know what it is yet or maybe it changed or maybe you’ve known all along. Either way, let’s embrace this together!

I have some cool ideas for this blog that would involve the help of some of you other creative geniuses out there! So stay with me. You’ll be glad you did :)

Oh yeah, so about the frog pic. Frogs = Rebirth. The first night I showed up at Omega this past August (for those of you who don’t know…Omega is a wellness retreat center I lived/worked at for 2 months), I spotted a frog chillin’ on a stair. I could’ve stepped on that guy, as it was so dark, but there he was, looking up at me as if to say “your rebirth starts now, girlfr…ribbit.” The next day, I found a ton more frogs on my way to meditate, and I was infatuated by them from that day forward. I seriously loved watching them, like A LOT. They were so peaceful and meditative and so darn adorable! As my love grew in those first few weeks, I still had no idea what the significance of frogs were. Not until I randomly mentioned my newfound obsession to my amazing life coach, Michelle, and she told me. Weeeeeell, that explained a lot.
