I can completely relate. Glad you found a way back to a good creative zone!

Cherie Wilson

Good to share that:) I am so intrigued and often think about artist's creative spaces and times......what drives us and how we operate. Celebrating the similarities and the differences too! Craft on, Dear Charlotte!

Charlotte...since I work with a lot of artists...I often see them hitting blocks. I like to tell them to do exactly what you just did. Do something basic OR take a class in something completely unrelated to their work. Both seem to help.

Alison Gibbs

Ooh what did you create with those fabulous bits and pieces

Melony Bradley

Hmmm- good approach. Lately have been working on a lot of "have tos" instead of "inspired tos." Tomorrow I will try what you did and go back to something that inspires me and reminds me of the basics. If only for a little while...


lots of white stuff... !
