Lost My MoJo!!
I have been so UNinspired..At a time when inspiration should be oozing out the ying yang,.....Where has my MoJo gone..Anyone else in the same boat?!?!?!?!?
ha yong yang ha ha that makes me laugh
Yeah I've kind of always had a hard time becoming inspired. I usually try to pay close attention to people's outfits and the colors they wear. Sometime that gives me ideas.
It is same with me...Does anyone remember when i posted my last project? I even don't have any inspiration to post new projects though I have saved all of my pictures from previous projects,i just have to add some information... Well,I made something for Halloween,but i think it doesn't counts.Well,kinda.
I hate it when that happens, watch a movie, take a walk, be around people who inspire you
Take a look here for one inspired dad. You gotta love this Robocop costume made from recycled stuff and the pictures of the little kid around town.
I've been that way for a couple of weeks, but the problem isn't a lack of inspiration. I have two whole pages of projects to work on! I just haven't felt like crafting or drawing. I think it's partly depression and partly burnout. For the past year I've been crafting and drawing non-stop. In August alone, I posted over 300 drawings and craft projects to deviantART. I have nearly 1000 on there and I've only been a member for 13 months! I was able to make a pumpkin plushie for my niece for Halloween today, so maybe I'm getting it back. I just know that I'm really unhappy when I'm not creating.
Yeah, it happens to me too, but it's burnout, like Kiddo said. I think the best you can do is take a week or two off, do something you love that you haven't done in forever, and then attack a completely NEW project, however loosely or not based on crafting. I find this helps me a lot, and then I'm able to go back to my list of items to create. In fact, I just finished a pillow I'd been working on for a year by doing this.
i think all my creative hours are wasted at my desk job :/
when i get home im a little worn out from the work day, but i think once i get out my supplies i will get into it
I use the internet as inspiration, it has so many things to look at! I love pretty pictures like those found at IMGfave
And fro journal prompts I like this site:
And there are many inspiring blogs out there, here are some of my faves:
I really hope they help, sometimes you just need to find something that makes you say:Hey I can make that!"
I think you can sometimes think too hard about being creative it can actually block your creativity.
Also, if something is becoming a bit of a drag it's usually a sign to try something else.
Sometimes you feel pressure to make things for others, which is not helpful either. I have found that a clean break with your current project works for me. Make something for yourself that you would like. X
