Get a Grip::Make Something

I'm feeling scattered ... .. . . a lack of focus.
(Do you ever get that way???)
Lots of ideas - but nothing to show for it.

I shall write myself a prescription:

1. Organize photos and art materials.
2. Sit down in the studio -
cut and glue and stitch and paint,
for at least an hour a day.

Make some art .. . .

I shall return when I can post something which I've
actually C R E A T E D ... . .

hope to see you soon!

This is such a coincidence. I've given myself nearly the same 'prescription'. To get in there and work everyday, a few hours a day. Time is ticking on and I'm so easily distracted. Wishing you lots of inspiration.

Does this sound familiar. The list is the best way to handle it - write it all down and prioritize.

I always work in spurts and stops.

I will make stuff like crazy for a couple months. Then will go for a couple months just letting ideas brew and collect supplies. Then go on another creating spurt.

I know that if I go too long without making anything, I get cranky.

Hope you break through your stalemate!

Ooo...nice piece! And excellent advice. We all feel like that from time to time, don't we? I sure hope it's not just little old me. I call it being in a "muddle"!

Scattered? Oh yes, all too often. So I decided to try to focus on one thing at a time and I seem to be getting more accomplished that way. Looking forward to seeing your creations! xo
