I have writers block for creativity. What would that be called? Creative block I guess. Well I have it and the only thing I am able to do is paint little things on my fingernails and then wipe them away. I have many ideas. I have plenty of materials to work with. What I don’t have is the ambition to complete anything. There is a pretty little bedside table in my head. The not so pretty table is in my basement. I have tools. I have paint. It’s just waiting.
Recently I acquired some horse chestnut burlap bags. My plan was to make a few of these. I made just this one.
I could make more….if I did not have creative block. I have plenty of burlap bags.
I plan to use these cupboard door samples,
to make more of these.
I cut this,
to do this. It’s not sewn on yet.
I even have Facebook contests to keep me motivated. Winners get handmade prizes. The last winner is still waiting for her prize. This is what she will get.
So far all I have done is collected the spheres.
Recently a family member gave me lots and lots of vintage fabrics. I have it sorted and folded neatly, stored here.
My plan is to use it to sew lots of Peter Pan collars. It only takes 30 minutes.
I’ve made two.
I have completed a project recently that I am quite satisfied with. I only planned on making one so I consider it a success story.
They say it is the journey, not the destination that matters. My creative block will pass. When it does, I have plenty to work with.
