My Creative Space


I'm having a bit of a creative slump this week

There are plenty of projects on the list..... I just need to get cracking!

Yesterday, I had to take some parcels down to the post office, and of course, there was no parking... so while doing blockies, I ended up taking a little detour further down the street to the bead shop, where I bought myself some little trinkets to play with, and a new pair of flat edge tweezers.

Funnily enough, I still haven't started work on using the last lot of pretty things that I bought from the bead shop... but I'm a bit of a magpie when it comes to all things shiny and new and crafty!

Watch this space - I might actually make something with this lot.

Those naughty bead shops, they are so alluring aren't they? Maybe you just needed these items to use with the last purchase? :)

Oh, those creative slumps are a bear, aren't they? Good you have lots of pretty things to inspire you back out of it eventually.

Hang in there. The slump will pass Cam.

Sometimes I think the slump is a necessary phase that happens when we need to slow down, restock or just have some quiet time. You go hell for leather most of the time Cam so make the most of having some down time. I'm sure your creative brain is already ticking over some new ideas as we speak anyway! Love those pretty, sparkly beads...I can see why you couldn't resist xo

Michelle said...

Hope you are out of your slump soon - nothing like some sparkles to give you ideas.

I find little slumps like that very useful sometimes, I always seem to pop out the other end all excited about something new. Although that often means heaps of half done projects, but I figure that's what being a crafter is all about! Love those sparkly beads!

If anything is going to get you out of a slump is all that shiny goodness! Loving the butterfly

Alison said...

Very pretty trinkets! But had to ask what is doing blockies?

Jennifer Rose said...

ooh shiny! :D love the butterflies

Kylie said...

Those pieces are really gorgeous. Hope they inspire you soon. I think there's just an ebb and flow to creativity that we all go through. Sometimes you just need to recharge the batteries :) K

Lovely pretty things! Your slump could transform into something special with all that sparkle-from a fellow magpie!
