I also recognise that I need to do something about it, so the problem is now what to do.
I'm guessing and playing at self-therapy here, that in order for me to "Un-Funk" myself I need to sort out what is causing the "funkiness". I also need to find some inspirational triggers, methods, or just inspiration bombs to help me achieve this.
At the moment I have a long list of creative projects on my "TO DO" list and I dare say I'm not the only crafter who will admit to that. So I can safely say that my problem is not what to do or even how to do it, it's more of a problem of want to do it. I just don't seem to be able to decide where to even start.
It's not that I have lost my MOJO, because I do have ideas on what to do... lots of them. Designs, techniques, page layouts all ready to be tried. It's more that I have lost the impetus to even start to create.
So my lovely friendly and incredibly helpful friends, followers and blog readers... I put this question to you... how or why or where do you find the inspiration to start creating?
- A PLANNER - You decide what you want to work on. You plan it, design it, sketch it first, come up with the colour scheme, paper selection, pick your photos, embellishments and then set about pulling everything out to create
- A DOER - You just pull out photos, tools, cardstock, patterned paper, adhesive, embellishments, paints, whatever and start creating
- A FOLLOWER - You scraplift, maybe with your own added flare or a direct copy of what you are scraplifting. You follow a sketch, a challenge with a list of requirements or instructions. You use a kit which has everything you need except consumables like adhesive and inks.
- Or are you a combination of all three of these?
Does your methodology change depending upon the project or do you like to work in one particular way so you stick with the good old tried and true?
I'd really like to get your feedback on this, so please leave a comment or a link.
