I bought some beads last week for jewellery making. I spread them out in front of me and looked at them. My mind goes blank. I have no idea what to make with them. My son enters the room. 'I don't know why you keep on buying all this crafting stuff, you don't even enjoy craft. Why don't you write or start doing your watercolour painting again?' It really is like having a second husband!
He has got a point though. Each time I 'want' to craft I end up getting exasperated and dissatisfied with what I am making. I also feel guilty and like I should be doing something more laudable. I always want instant, professional results which will only happen if I put the time and effort into honing my crafts.
So, now I find myself in a dilemma. I feel the need to make or do something but don't know what to do. When my mind is left to wander the old negative thoughts wend their way in and I am rendered useless.
I want to create something new and exciting but am lacking the inspiration to get going. Any suggestions to ignite the creative spark are most welcome.
