Why? Because it has been SO long since I have sat down and created something. I haven't painted or sanded or nailed or varnished or inked or torn or drawn or photographed much of anything lately. It just doesn't seem like I am myself unless I am creating some kind of something. I guess it is just who I am. I never have thought of myself as the creative "type", but I guess deep down I am. I don't feel like I am accomplishing much of anything when I have all of these ideas and projects in my head that I want to make and create and no time to make them come alive.
I think that is the best part of creating. To take an idea that is floating around in my head and making it come alive and then looking at it and saying, "I did that!" No better feeling I tell ya!
I did do some fun layouts at the Scrapbook Expo a couple of weeks ago. Other than that, there has been a cap on my creative juices and they have not flowed in quite some time.
I wish that school wasn't consuming every part of my free time. I wish that I could magically make more time appear in my day. Since I can't, I will just have to deal with the fact that I won't have time to create much of anything until finals are over with in 4 weeks. **SIGH**
Until then, I will just keep the lid on my creative juices and hope that I can let them flow once again ALL Summer LONG!!! Keepin' my fingers crossed for that!
