I feel a bit lazy on the crafty side these days. I do believe that I can work hard but lately I just feel uninspired. I did a big clean up in my "craft room" (closet) which I thought was a good start to getting those crafty juices flowing. BUT I am still uninspired. I try to work on stuff but feel bored and this makes me sad.
How do you get those juices flowing when you aren't "into it"?
Here are a few things I found interesting.
A good article about Getting into the Zone found here
This does not fully apply but the sentiment is there
Things that do inspire me can also completely overwhelm me.
The Usual Suspects:
Craft. So many ideas but so little time.
I really don't try to beat myself up too much about these times in my life where nothing is striking but I miss the excitement and adrenaline rush I get when I am creating something. I have been reading lately and that is nice and cooking still but yeah,I need to get in a zone soon because I really want to apply to this year's Bazaar Bizarre at the Maker Faire. Applications will be available starting on March 9th. I am really excited about this possibility, they do a great job!
Today I have been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash because today would have been his 77th birthday. He had an amazing career and was a beautiful song writer. I wonder how he got inspired? Either way, Happy Birthday Mr. Cash
