Sometimes, like the prairie I love so much, I find myself in a drought. A creative drought. It is completely frustrating in every way.
Back in August, I decided to go back to work full-time and do my jewelry and classes part time. I promised myself that I would have plenty of time to be creative and make beautiful treasures, but it hasn't worked out that way. I feel like (to quote the old Aerosmith song) "my get up and go just got up and went."
I feel jealous when I look at Facebook and Pinterest and see all of the beautiful treasures people are creating. I feel sad when I realize that my beads have been put up since before Thanksgiving, and before that hadn't been used since about July. I just haven't felt very creative. And I hate that.
I have several large scale projects rolling around in my head, but nothing concrete, and nothing I have felt that pressing need to make right here, right now.
Maybe eventually I will get hit with a creative charge and will make pretty things. For now, I will just have to be content watching others make things.
