Last time I mentioned that wintertime was kind of grinding me down. I am looking for my energy back. I know that it will feel like coming back to life. My snowdrops are showing themselves and this always means I'll be finding myself feeling normal again. Meanwhile, the exercise, regular sleep and avoiding stress will have to work their magic.
I mentioned love. This metaphor is really resonating. I am currently looking at all the arts centers and bead shops in my area for classes i can take, like a date with my jewelry. Making things without about whether they will be "good enough" for this year and learning new skills really sounds sooo good! Come to think of it, I can do mini versions of this by setting aside time with some of the videos I've collected over the years.
The only problem is, part of my workflow is to make all the projects I am working on or thinking about part of my regular studio environment. Maybe I can get some scarves and cover all that. I don't want to pack them away, their immediacy is very important. Still, a blank slate would be pretty good.
I think I might find some pretties while I am out today.
