Sometimes you need to stop, take a deep breathe and just relax.
Seriously, you need to take better care of yourself.
Please allow some quiet time for you creativity to recharge.
Your Inner Muse xx
There are lots of ways to give your creativity a boost.
Just having a break from the usual routine is enough to inspire and invigorate…
And that is exactly what I’ve been doing for the past four days.
Although, it didn’t actually go according to plan!
With a free weekend ahead, I had all kinds of things lined up to indulge in and was really looking forward to the down time.
Unfortunately, a nasty weather system came through on Saturday and wreaked havoc over several days. We endured gale force winds, constant rain and power outages for a period of 48 hours.
There was little I could do without power and with poor or little lighting.
So I set about tidying my craft room and in the process spotted something I haven’t used in awhile… my watercolour paints.
Suddenly an idea was born… it was a change of plans, but still one that would provide some quiet down time.
I grabbed my A5 watercolour pad, curled up on my bed close to the window to grab the only snippet of decent light and started doodling with a Zig pen.
Simple… unplanned…. mindless art that is perfect for recharging the creative batteries.
On Sunday I set up my watercolours and ‘played’ some more.
It was incredibly therapeutic.
I felt completely relaxed. Having no power meant that there was no external stimulation. Just the rain on the tin roof, a scented candle and time to just be.
The last couple of days we’ve been cleaning up around the resort. Although we suffered no structural damage in the storms, being in the rainforest meant we were inundated with tree debris.
Sweeping leaves may be a mindless activity, but I can assure you my freshly boosted creative mind was planning and creating the whole time.
I guess I needed that little creativity recharge!
Happy crafting my friends,
