lately. Its not that I don't have ideas. I have ideas a-plenty!! Its that I don't have the motivation to put those ideas into action. Because of this I've created busy work myself!
Busy Work While Awaiting Motivation
- Clean out the studio. Reorganize fabric. Do a massive throw-out. I like to work in an unclutter space because to me clutter = distraction. Of course, you could argue that cleaning the clutter is a big distraction in itself!
- Make a Dharma Trading Order. Thanks to my generous mother, I got a nice Dharma gift certificate for my birthday. You know what that means??? New Dye!!! But how does one pick with so many colors to chose from??? I spent an hour reorganizing (of course) the dyes I already have and several more picking out the new colors I'll need for this upcoming year. I mean seriously. . . .can a girl have too many dye colors?
- Doing my homework for my upcoming class in July. Now its a good thing to have it done, but does it have to be done 2 months in advance?
Second I joined Jane Dunnwold Artist Strength Training class. A smart lady knows when to ask for help and Jane has designed an online class just for what ails me. To tell you the truth, even though I read the class syllabus, I'm still not quite sure what to expect. But since I've had Jane before, I know I can trust her to help get me back on the creative track.
You know - like a creative re-boot!
So has this ever happen to you. . . . gotten a case of the blahs? Not creative block but motivation drain? What do you do?
Please tell me you've been doing something more interesting creatively than me!!!
