Stuck in a rut


OK, I’ll come right out and say it: I’m going through a creative funk, a fruitless (indeed) spell, a narrow long tunnel of je ne sais quoi. My fingers are pretty much paralyzed, my imagination is stuck like a needle to an LP. The repetitive sound: Plain, plain, plain, plain. Where are the bananas?

Every day I go to my little workspace, play around with a few beads, and then resigned to the idea that I’m the jewelry version of Midas, I stop all efforts whatsoever. And to be honest, the weather, my often-cited culprit, has nothing to do with it.

Maybe it’s just a pause. Time for a deep breath. Time to imagine that I have the money to splurge on Etsy items I don’t just heart — I heartĀ²! This is one little such number I wouldn’t mind in my wardrobe by CreoleCollection.

Ponchatoula Memories 6

At least my fingers are somewhat magnetized to the keyboard and like scooping out words and words and words. With all this time in front of my ibook I stumbled onto a pleasant surprise from Sam (matouenpeluche).

great read

Thanks so much Sam! I just love this image — it’s so playful. In turn, I’d like to pass on this sexy nerdy award to:

And now, back to that imaginary shopping cart. Hopefully inspiration will sneak up on me when I least expect it.
