Untitled

This is a post about, well, nothing really. And therein lies the problem.



I'm feeling distinctly lacking in inspiration. It's quite confounding and discombobulating. I don't know whether to do some more plates, or some more designs for envelop or whether to jazz up the shop a bit. I am cast adrift.



So, I sat at my desk and moved/straightened some piles of paper around, then I tipped all these shapes out and moved them around a bit.



I looked at the wall and my clutter, ahem, treasures.



Then I gave up, and came downstairs again. Maybe tomorrow will be different?

Keep going, see it through, it's hard, but you'll get there in the end :)

Im the world's worst procrastinator - I drive myself barmy!
I love your cushions for envelop, I saw Elisabeth's a while back - think I might give it a try, (being a fellow fustrated screen-printer) if I can stop dithering:)

Oh poor you Nath. I did knock on your door 2 days ago to say hello hello, but the house was empty. Sending you lots of love and hope the 'stuck' feeling passes soon. x

I think that sometimes, you have to stop trying and it will come. Do some baking or dancing, or at a push cleaning!!

Oh we all have these days Nath... just do something else today, it'll come back! Sometimes a little pressure helps as well. For example I was feeling similar yesterday, but I just had to finish some custom orders, and then I just had to 'fill the kiln' so kept going. The first things weren't so great, but slowly the fun came back, and in the end I was working till deep into the night again... ;) But a day or more off sometimes isn' bad either!

Well, if it helps I liked your post all the same. I'm sitting at my desk, eating soups, trying to write some radio scripts... and wishing I had some little bits of coloured paper to move about too. (My expression today actually looks like the second shot!)

Oh - this happens to me a lot. It is unsettling. Sometimes it takes just a little while to go away and sometimes longer. But inspiration ALWAYS comes back. Wishing you and inspiring day Nath!!

Wellies and Vogue said...

Fine Little Day said...

Looks playful though, this, and very graphic. I bet something will come out of it.

Don't worry. We all have this. You might wake up tomorrow with a completely different outlook.

Those shapes remind me very much of something from when I was younger but I can't for the life of me remember what. I tend to find I get most inspired after browsing the web for a while and looking at what inspires other people. I also find inspiration seems to come when I don't expect it or when I'm not looking for it so perhaps you should just take a break for a few days?

Francesca said...

i have been having exactly the same problem nath. just managed to squeeze out a couple of posts the last few days. it happens sometimes. it'll come back. those shapes are so very you. sending love from the big smoke. x

You shuffled bits of paper, in my book thats a major achievement. I stared at a blank piece of paper so long yesterday that I dribbled on it.
