crochet:: recovering your creativity takes time

Hi there!  I hope your week has been rolling along pleasantly.  This week has been a stark contrast to the insanity I felt all last week.  I have moved on from my first craft show and learned my lessons from it.

Lesson #1 – Being prepared for any craft emergency has its benefits.

Lesson #2 – Craft shows are a TON of work for hookers like me and not a get rich quick scheme.

Lesson #3 – As much as I enjoyed it, I probably won’t make a career of it.

That being said, it really was a great show and I’m glad I had the opportunity to give it a whirl.  I’m not swearing them off, I just don’t think I could keep up the pace to make it a priority in my life.  I enjoy my crafting too much to turn it into a whirlwind of make, make, make, to sell, sell, sell.  To those of you with that much drive – I tip my hat.  You are amazing and inspiring.

So my final decision is to do them when I have a surplus of stuff I’ve made and concentrate instead on creating patterns and writing and making things for the pure joy it.

To decompress from the crazy week I had leading up to the show,  I have done the simple stuff of life lately.  I sat for hours at the bonfire pit relaxing with friends and road the ATV for as much time as I could.  I canned and kept company with the neighbor’s horses (I’m their best friend when I have apples).  I talked with my son and cooked comfort food.

I am finally scheming new patterns and projects already, and that feels pretty good.

Creativity needs some down-time to recoup, regroup and make a strong comeback.


Have a ridiculously amazing day & I’ll chat with you again soon 🙂

PS – I made the tutu & it’s really freakin cool!
