Happy Saturday my crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a crafty Saturday. While my plans were to get in my craft room and put more things away and get rid of some of the boxes, my pain & body decided that it was not going to happen tonight. Maybe tomorrow? In any case, my stomach is not doing so well either. I made an awesome dinner tonight for the family and my daughter's friend (who is spending the night) but I couldn't even have any because of the cramping. I am going through that change of life thing that we women go through and if I am not suffering from the night sweats and hot flashes, I am dealing with my monthly cycle hitting me at what seems to be every two weeks instead of every month! UGG I hate it! So while I am hungry and want to dive into the chicken over angel hair with a creamy spinach and roasted pepper garlic sauce, I cannot! So what I was doing, was checking my emails and leaving comments on my friends' blogs and I came across a post from my friend Tina's Blog, Confessions of a DeNami Addict and saw her post this:
"Lately I've felt myself struggling and don't seem to have any vision when I try to craft. Have you've ever felt that way? I sit at my desk surrounded by darling doo-dads, pretty papers and ribbons galore yet I can't seem to make anything I'm happy with. I think I have a form of writers block...card block perhaps?"So I told her I would copy/paste what I had left for her as a comment here on my blog, because I really believe that I am on to something with writer's block, or at least I want to think I'm that special! LOL So here is what I am thinking about it...There have been many times, just like Tina and many of you out there, that I've shoved things around and been surrounded by gorgeous embellishments and papers and came up empty. It happens to us all and I've actually sat and tried to think about why this happens and so what I've come up with ... is that I think we try to hard to create something MORE amazing then the last thing we made and we try to "WOW" our readers so it becomes more of a competition or battle of the blogs and we forget to just have FUN and RELAX. When we take that pressure off of ourselves and not try to out do so and so, we tend to create the most beautiful things without the stress and writer's block. At least that's what I think anyways! So there ya have it. My food for thought on a Saturday!
~Until next time, enjoy life's blessings~
