For a while now I have felt in a bit of a creative rut. Unless I have a deadline (thank you Bead Soup Blog Party!) I can't seem to get motivated or inspired. This book provides a year's worth of ideas to try new techniques and think in new directions. Think lots of journaling and mixed media, although there is beading and fiber arts too. I showed my daughter Emma and her eyes lit up - this book will definitely require several trips to Michaels for new art supplies.
After buying the book I saw this post by the fabulous Patty at My Life Under the Bus titled Where Has My Mojo Gone? I immediately commented that I had found this great book that just might help. E-mails started flying back and forth, because we thought,
WHY DON'T YOU JOIN US?
We'd like to form a group of like minded (semi-lost) souls, and host blog hops occasionally to see how everyone is doing. The intent is to make it very low key - more of a support group - maybe a post once a month or so. So leave a comment and make sure we can contact you and we'll send out details to the entire group via e-mail. And I am making this up as I am typing :-)
The big question for me is, will I stick with it? Not sure. But I would like to give it a try - and joining Patty and I sure would help. My awesome husband is always encouraging me to use my scarce free time to play and learn, especially when I get discouraged about doing something - anything - to move Beads for Busy Gals forward. I think this book might be a good way to relearn how to play. Only I would need a guide book/to do list to play :-)
