My creative space


I think it's fair to say I'm an idea's woman. I enjoy inventing lots of creative projects. It's the follow through that's the issue. This week, I've bitten off more than I can chew! The palings are from my fence to make a rustic coffee table. The driftwood for a Christmas wreath. The gorgeous print from Ink & Spindle is to recover the foot stool. I'm very unmotivated right now. I need some divine creative intervention!

To view creative projects that are actually finished, head over to Kootoyoo.

You'll get there ! At least you have your supplies together .

Amanda said...

Well you certainly have amazing ideas...Tackle one at a time and use the exciement of finishingf one as the motivator to start the next.

You can do it! There's a local guy who makes stuff with driftwood & such, he might help you out with the table...

Some Toblerone & a cup of tea always manages to get me in the mood for creating.

Have a coffee and regroup. Then start ONE of them and hopefully you'll work up a bit of adrenilin to carry on. This advice from a serious procrastinator.
Enjoy

I understand the feeling, but I love the starting point. I've been looking at all the dead wisteria vines I have lying on the ground this morning (another unfinished project= the garden) thinking Christmas wreath. Beautiful fabric - would love to see that made into a footstool. I sent you an email because I stuff up your comments - pressed deleter instead of publish (oh dear). Sorry to be a bother, please re-enter!

I think we all have those days. That's what happens when you're a creative person, you just can't seem to switch it off sometimes!

Are you still in for the stocking swap? I still haven't got your email and I wanted to send out a bulk email with all the details etc. You can email me at selinasvintage (at) gmail.com to let me know one way or the other. Cheers!

I am absolutely the wrong one to ask. If I even began to open my mouth there would be a lot of 'pot' and 'kettle' and 'black' involvement.

Megan said...

i hear you on the follow through problem!! if you find a solution please pass it my way :)

i just try to think of how fantastic it will look when i do finally do it, although that doesn't always get me off my bum.

and by the sounds of it yours will definitely be looking fantastic :)

It's all very interesting! Maybe you just need to look at it longer and you'll dream something up? I can't wait to see the rustic table!

Have a great weekend,
xoxo,
