Creative Spells

Is it me, or does every self-deemed creative person go through periods of extreme creative lull and flow?  It's almost like a manic process for me, the creation of art, which I have so meticulously documented in this blog.  Twenty pendants created and added to my Etsy shop in THREE days?  Hmmm...

I try to look at this process as a creative hermit's (hurray for hermits!) semblance of normalcy, my calming down process to wind down the day--or a cherished way to spend a hazy, slow afternoon.  I love what I do, and I do hope that it shows!  Currently, my creative process seems to be on its way up.  I can feel it.  Conversely, it can come crashing down in all its glory unannounced, leaving me feeling utterly uncreative.  But I'm going with the current upsurge, seeing where it leads me.

 
A semi-minor side note of sorts...
Etsy has been down, off and on, lately.  Frustrating, yes!

It's NOT you. It's the creative process! If you were uber creative every single day, you'd simply burn out. Balance is key. Enjoy your day!
