Lack of inspiration

It looks like my inspiration has gone on holiday. For some reason, I can’t start working properly, even though I have tons of ideas. But they just can’t come out of me. My head is buzzing, but nothing’s been done. My yarn is waiting to be woven into something beautiful, but I just can’t start! I hate when that happens!

So, to keep my self from going insane, I’ve been  playing with paper these days, hoping for that “Eureka” moment. I started making another mini album which is going to be a gift for a dear friend of mine. I am using some gorgeous papers I brought from the US, and the album is going to be a bit more romantic and feminine that I’m used to. But I like how it’s coming together. Photos coming soon! 🙂 Also, I made some cute Christmas ornaments using newspapers, masking tape, junk mail, paints, and some beads. So, nothing bought, and everything found around the house, which I like! Playing without spending money. Nice! I’m sorry my photos are so bad, (actually they are SO bad I can’t show you all of them). But this is how it started: making a small cone and adding masking tape or decoupaging newspaper to add some texture, but not too much.

Then on one cone I added a little bit of yarn and paint, and also some puff paint, so now it looks like this:

I also used some crazy fluffy yarn, or I just painted the cone and glued beads on it. But here is my favorite one – paint, glitter, stamps and big pearls – it looks like a bell.

So, it seems like my inspiration hasn’t left me completely, but I miss my “normal” state, which would be something like that Tasmanian Devil from the cartoon “The Bugs Bunny Show” – I hope you remember that, LOL! Usually I have too many ideas and so much energy, but not enough time to do everything I’d like to do, and these days I seem to have the ideas but no energy. Hmmm….Maybe a chocolate cake would cure me? What do you think? 🙂

What I did today

I love days like this. Creating, creating, creating! Although I make all kinds of things, my favorite activity is, of course, weaving. But I don’t blog that much about it. Why? Well, because it’s a slow process and there would be about one post a week if not less! And I want to blog because it’s fun and because it keeps me connected with people around the world, and because once I started doing that, I can’t seem to stop! ,and because I love to make different things, things that are my way of self exploring, exploring art, exploring different mediums, exploring life!  Sooo, that’s why I did everything today! There was some weaving done, then sewing my handwoven fabric, then making some cute ornaments, and it is all still work in progress, but there was huge progress made today, so I’m happy!

Have a great weekend! 🙂
