Creative Block

I’m finally out of it!!! Oh, how I hate when my muse goes away, leaving me uninspired and sad. It’s unbearable! To have ideas, lots of them, and to not be able to do anything, to create one single thing, that is terrible! Thank you my dear muse for coming back! I will make you a cake! πŸ™‚

Or maybe I should thank Deb. She organizes an ATC challenge every month, and this month the theme is “Fish”, which immediately made my fingers itch. πŸ™‚ So thank you Deb! Here are the cards I made:

Not bad. ? You have no idea how thankful I was when I finished these ATCs. Funny how glue, paint and paper make me happy.

The holidays are to be blamed. They somehow push me out of my normal rhythm, and instead of having more time to make art, I end up being stuck. Strange. (OK, enough about that!)

Anyway, I have to tell you that almost all of my scarves and a poncho have been sold (yay!), along with a wonderful brown crocheted bag which I forgot to photograph! Come on! What is wrong with me?! But I do have another one to show you. Happy, colorful summer bag.

It was finished a while ago, but I was uninspired to even take photos of it. Poor bag. It didn’t deserve that kind of treatment.

Another thing I must thank Deb for is an inchie fever! Deb committed to making inchies and twinchies every day in 2014, and she already has an amazing collection! You should visit her blog (http://bluetwigstudio.wordpress.com/)and see how lovely they are! It’s been a while since I made inchies, but last night I thought that it could be a great way for me to start making something. They are small so they don’t require too much work (well, you could make them as complex and detailed as you like, but you don’t have to, there are no rules), so it was a perfect thing for me to do! This first batch is a bit simple, but I’m just happy that I played and had fun. And who knows, maybe the fever will continue and I’ll have an inchie for every day of the year! Wouldn’t that be great!

Thank you Deb once again! πŸ™‚

Have a wonderful day everyone!

    I was trying to do anything, but it didn’t work. It seems I just had to let things go their way and to wait. Now I can play. And hopefully make something really good soon. πŸ™‚
