How long does it take?

I get this question a lot.."How long does it take for you to make an item?"

Whenever I get this question, in my heart, I really don't know the answer. I've never timed myself on a stop watch while making something.

The truth is, there are things that you need to wait for it to dry before you can move onto the next step, so how do you really time it?

Besides, it really doesn't matter to me how long it takes as long as the outcome is beautiful. 

Sometimes I get other ideas while working on the initial idea, and I end up changing things along the way...Or things were a little more complex than how I initially thought, and it requires more time to think about the execution before I I really don't know.

But I do know the goal is to make it as beautiful as possible and in the process, every little detail matter.

I saw these words being used in another picture and it resonates so much with what I strive to do.

Creating beautiful things is possibly my life long mission and I will always give my best. :)
