Ever have one of those moments when you know you should be creating something, but you just don't feel like it? I'm having one of those weeks!! Each night this week as I left my full time job I told myself that I really needed to go home and work on some new jewelry. Have I done it? Not really! I've managed to create a pair of earrings and bracelet this week so far. Not very good for business is it?? ;-)
I guess I need to get "inspired" and get to crackin' on creating some new items to add to my store. Lord knows I have plenty of supplies that are just screaming at me to design something.
As soon as I post this blog I plan on getting out some of my bead books and magazines and browsing the gorgeous work that appears on the many pages. I find this is one of the best ways for me to get inspired to create again. I see the unique designs and creations and think of new ways to re-create those designs or to use the color combinations. Or I'll look at some of the techniques they've used and I'll try use those same techniques that maybe I've haven't used before.
Not feeling creative is not a good thing for those of us who design and create of all types of crafts! But that does happen from time to time. We hit a creative block and must take a little time away to refresh and get re-energized.
I shared with you what I sometimes do to get creating again, why don't you share with the rest of us what you do when you get the same way! I'm sure we will all learn some great tips and ideas to get inspired.
Until next time--Blessings! ~ Dawn
