Have you ever been in a creative rut? That’s what has been going on with me lately. I’ve been blogging for years, making cards for years, the same kind of things..for years. I thought a few breaks would help and in a way they did but I still just felt blah when it came to creating.
I have been challenged to improve my coloring skills and that has helped a little bit. But I still felt in a rut. Crazy thoughts crossed my mind like I should stop blogging, stop creating. But I knew in my heart that wasn’t going to happen, I love to create.
And then Susana got some new products in. And I rolled my eyes as they are more “mixed media” type products. Not for me I said. As I’ve always said about mixed media/altered/Tim Holtz type products/styles-not for me.
And then I tried a few of the new products.
I can’t explain the sparks that started flying in my brain. The happy giddy giggles I use to get that started to come out. The desire to create and play and create came back with a force.
So instead of continuing to label myself..I gave myself permission to embrace it and let it flow. I even signed up for an online class with Tim Holtz!
I’m excited! and the biggest thing is that I want to create again! I may not fully embrace the total mixed media/grunge type style but I can find my own fun, Danni style!
So I hope you’ll stick with my on my new creativity journey!
