Where is my muse?

I am waiting for inspiration to strike. Now that the play is over and I can finally get into the studio and make some things for myself alone, I find that I am at an impase as to how to do so.

Perhaps I just need to get in there and make something, anything, to get the juices flowing. I know I NEED to do it....or else I will just stay in this grey limbo of doing nothing, which is a kind of artistic metastasis.

It has got to break.

It will break soon. It always does. Try peeking at some pictures on Flickr. That does it for me sometimes.

I'm feeling the same way lately. And with quitting my day job, or mostly quitting it, that SCARES me. Where has my inspiration gone? I haven't sewn anything in over a week! (cept for some thrift store finds)

I hate that feeling. Hopefully you're on break this week and will have some time to break out of it.

Have you read "The Creative Habit" by Twyla Tharp? I find it helpful sometimes.

I think that I am going to do some creative exercises (Think doing scales at the piano, but for making stuff)

Maybe that will bust me out of this...

Very cool house! That looks like a fun and tiring re-modeling project.

I hope you get out of your slump soon. I know how it feels! I have to have the "sewing bug" in order to sew. Same with jewelry.

It is not my is very litterally abandonded, hence the title of the posting. (My house is also in a state of repair/disrepair however, so it might not be so far off!)
