The Holidays are very special times of the year, especially for a creator. A cologne crafter is a creator because the colognes he or she may craft are uniqued properties. These properties set them apart from every other custom crafter because theres a little bit of their soul infused with their creations. I use the Holidays as time to reboot. The holidays bring several new things such as: Love, Joy, Inspiration, Review and Forecasting. These unique things work together to produce a euphoric feeling with the crafter thats like adrenaline. Each piece in the puzzle will build a brilliant platform of power to create anything that enters the mind.
The following definitions were excerpts of dictionary.com.
Love is defined as a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person. The cologne that you are crafting most of the time is not for yourself. If it is you have a certain level of love for your self. so your passion is evoked. The evoking of your passion unlocks a power that causes you to dig into the deeper unrestrained natural force that fuels the emotions which are apart of the intellect and boom. Your senses and emotions mix they are heightened and the awesomeness of you spills forth with a masterpiece.
Joy is a similar feeling however joy is defined as the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying. A crafter of any kind loves what they do. The joy bridges the gap between emotion and the vision. Joy is the equilibrium it provides controlled motions that allow the crafter to work on a project and maintain stability. The crafter will experience times of tiredness but joy causes them to override that feeling and process it as a obstacle and be able to push past it. Joy is priceless its a natural drug, that can never be harnessed by man for selling.
Inspiration compels its a drive. It causes the human body to be driven. The body is a receptacle of a rich supple of ethereal influence. Where does inspiration come from. Inspiration is defined as: an inspiration or animating action or influence. Influence is a real deal force that helps the crafter to try new innovative crafting technics. Technics that off the beaten path to reveal the new expressions that will help the crafter keep their edge. Inspiration opens up a whole new door or doors of opportunity this makes the difference between them and every other crafter out there. Inspiration works hand in hand with joy to craft the smells no one else has ever smelled.
Review is defined as: the process of going over a subject again in study or recitation in order to fix it in the memory or summarize the facts. The consistent process of checking and double checking is critical. These observations make the crafter hone in on their process from start to finish. What it takes to begin, how to bend or correct something mid stream. How to finish each project the same way to insure the signature touch. Review is equally as important to the crafter because even how they are inspired and when can be analyzed and inspirational moment can be evoked by the crafter. If they have paid close attention the process can be crucial when others have lost their edge.
Finally Forecasting is defined as: to predict a future condition or occurrence, calculate in advance. The crafter creates from and with a unique expression and they can only imagine the experience people will have when they come in contact with they products. The dream of every crafter is to expose people to unique properties that will enhance their existence. This will give them a glimpse into the realm of creation and that exposure brings people into your world and hopefully they will never want to leave.
