CREATIVE MOJO: THE EBB & FLOW

Your crafting corner is collecting dust.  That stack of quilting squares hasn't dwindled down for quite some time.  Your art journal entries have all but ceased.  The unfinished painting sits, not glanced at since........

It happens to the best of us.  Creative block.  Ambushed ambition.  Perhaps one's attention necessitates being diverted to other matters, as has been the case with me.  But, how comforting when the magnet, the glowing flame.... that "thing".... calls us back to center.  I'm sure you've been in both places.

These days I find myself more accepting of this ebb and flow.  The years have seasoned and conditioned me with how to better embrace what used to drive me nutty.  Now, I just experience mild nuttiness.

At the moment, and to my delight, my creative mojo happens to be on the upswing.  As the equinox draws near, this ambitious streak of mine will strengthen.

Proof of this prediction, a collection of fanciful felted fungi is spawning at the createaerie, and will be available for purchase at Lynch's Garden Center come early fall.

So, don't let the ebb and flow take your ambitions out to sea, or leave them to shrivel up on the shore.  If you're experiencing a block, just ride the tide.  You'll eventually find yourself docked in a slip of inspiration, ideas and most importantly, creative mojo.

    1. Thank you! I really enjoy making them and scavenging the beach for weathered branches is so, so therapeutic.
