It’s Back…

I have that creative itch again.

The one where I want to just make stuff and do creative things!!

Have you seen this website?

I am in love with this idea…(also in love with the creator. *sigh* Joseph Gordon-Levitt)

Anyways…they do these themes and right now the theme is Childhood. (See video)

Now…what could I do that was creative and had to do with Childhood??

This is where I wish I had a kid, like he said. Haha… I used to do really cool art projects with the kids at the daycare.. they weren’t my kids though, so I can’t use them.

Hmmm…I am going to think and then I am going to create. This time I am going to do it!! : )

Maybe Joseph will notice my work! Maybe…one can hope.

Thoughts on Creativity

Hope everyone had a great Easter and I pray that we don’t just think about God and Jesus on Easter and Christmas only.

I feel like I have been a little MIA lately.  Sometimes I get in a creative funk. I do that with my sewing projects and my paintings pretty much anything I get excited about. Example: I wanted to learn how to take better pictures so I bought a pretty nice camera – I only used it for about a month or two and now it’s been about 6 months since I have touched it.

I come up with this great ideas and then I put all my focus and attention for the next however many hours it take me to finish it and sometimes I can spin multiple ideas off one but then I burn out. I get bored with it and I won’t touch my camera,  sewing machine or a paint brush for weeks. It’s not that I don’t think about it.

I should go get my camera out and practice or learn something new. I should go paint a picture or I should go sew something, I should go write on my blog… etc.

I am going to try to be better. I would like to combine all the things I like to do into one. It’s hard though. Someday, I feel like when I get married and have kids, I won’t have the kind of time I have now and I need to start getting better at using the time I have now, so one day I won’t look back and think… ” I should have (sewn/taken pictures/painted/journaled…) more.”

What I need to do –  is not put so much pressure on myself to come with the BEST idea or project and just do it because I like to and do it for the sake of doing it.

Sometimes, the best ideas come from starting something and rearranging it and just making it as you go.

In fact, I think I will sew or paint tonight – maybe I will bust out the camera I paid a lot of money for too!!

Does anyone else ever feel like this??

This looks like a movie I would love…
