Hi all! Back to posts with photos! Although, ironically after all those posts about inspiration and personal style and such, I have been seriously off my groove. I have wanted to make things, but just haven't had the inspiration. I've been keeping up with my sketching, but don't have anything more than a few studies yet. It's like my artistic impulse and inspiration have been frozen solid by the sudden decisive onset of Winter.
But last night I sort of forced a thaw. I had some gift tags to make and some boxes that needed to go out in the mail for some far-flung friends. I decorated the boxes first, and it was kind of rough. For a while I just sort of sat there looking at all my stuff, as though I didn't know what I was doing. I pushed myself to just get started, though, and so I'm not all that thrilled with how they turned out. Well, they're just shipping boxes, so they're not meant to be kept...
But once I got started on the tags to go with the gifts in them, I started to warm up a little better.
Isn't it strange how you can get so thrown off, and freeze up and feel like you can't do anything anymore? Or maybe it's just me that happens to. Well, hopefully I can keep warming up and get the fire burning again. I have so much to do for Christmas!
