Creative Block or - Woe is me...
The folks at Forbes Farm have been in a horrible creative block lately. Wish I could find someone to share the blame, but I am the only "folks at Forbes Farm". DH never was very creative, so no one notices if he's in a creative block. I can't seem to come up with anything new that is worth making. There's such a backlog of stuff not sold I certainly don't need to work on making any more of what I already have. Whatever I start doesn't work out. I've started the same choker twice and both times it looked terrible so I tore it out. What's a girl to do?
Kind folks have given me all sorts of suggestions from take a vacation to take a long walk. I can only afford the long walk since I can't even pay the bills, let alone take a vacation. I tried the long walk, but you know what? The bills were still sitting here when I got back. I'm in a catch 22. When I'm working I don't get anything accomplised and when I'm not working I keep thinking I should be.
I heard on the news last evening that the reason the recession is stalled is because the consumers aren't spending. I only wish I had something to spend and I'm willing to bet a lot of folks are in the same boat. I suppose it would be very tacky to get on Twitter and shout out to all the rich people and tell them to spend some of that money they're hoarding. Yeah, it would be. The thought has crossed my mind though.
Well, I'm off to the studio to sit and stare at the beads and pray for inspiration I guess. Not much else I can do but hope and pray for better days. Wish me luck. I sure hope yourday is going better!
