So, I’m taking a little creative break. Don’t panic, it won’t be that long…I’m in need of a vacation. I’ll still be making beads because there are orders to be filled, a new show added, and I still have plenty to show you that have piled up.
I’m really just taking a break from designing for a few days. That can be really taxing when it doesn’t click. I know, wah wah, call a wahmbulance. Don’t get me wrong…I’ve made some pretty cool stuff but something is still missing.
In the last few days I hit a wall and became frustrated. Every morning I would sit at the torch and think, ‘What am I going to make today?’…what a great question to be able to ask every day! I’m not complaining, I’m attempting to give you another peek into my process…the good and the not-so-good. So, as I sat down I would start drawing on the work of the day before. While I have liked some of the elements, I haven’t come up with the right combination and there is no use fighting against it, as I said in one of my interviews. Time to practice what I preach. It will come when it comes and this tells me that there is something else that I need to be doing.
Didn’t I say after my Tucson show that it’s time to focus on some writing for a while? And, have I been doing that? No. Bad, bad me. I was doing so well with my structure before Tucson and it all went out the window. Time to get back on track. Care to join me? Oh, did I mention I went to the gym yesterday? Yee-haw me!
