I am trying to use my evening time as crafting and creative time. I went down to the "slipcover workroom" last night and just sat there. I'm blocked! It could be this low lying bug I seem to have with slight aches in the body and head, but nevertheless it was a bad feeling to have time to do something and feel frozen.
I looked into why people get writers' block and a couple of the suggested reasons hit home. One was the fear of falling short. Hmmm. I think that I am so worried about making something that EVERYONE will love, that I make nothing at all. I guess we've all been there. I don't think of myself as a perfectionist because I never do anything that's perfect.
Some of the suggestions were helpful, like just write something (or make something) quickly before you have time to over think it. Another idea: have a friend give you 3 words and write a vignette using those words. That could work for crafting as well.
I think the main idea is to just get moving and then the creative flow will follow.
I have been looking at this pile of stuff for a few days now. The elephants were recycled from a big ladies shirt with elephants all over it. My plan is to make a tote bag because I love tote bags. Colleen gave me the trim the other day. Thanks, Colleen.
Maybe there will be something crafted to post later this week.
