Work in Progress: Catch Up

Do you ever have major creative slumps? I find that whenever I’m pouring a lot of energy into a project that doesn’t work out - or turns out to be just plain boring - I get completely drained of creativity, until I don’t want to do anything productive at all. This happened to me at the beginning of September, and I’ve been really struggling to get around it for the past week or so.

It took a little time, but I finally figured out a way to work around the creative blocks I was having, and got to working on some new projects that are exciting to sit down to. Right now I’m putting together a secret something using a Swarovski cosmic pendant, and it’s going very well. It feels great to be back to normal again!

My top secret project is still on schedule, despite some setbacks and a lot of timing issues. Normally I’d have hours of beading time to myself on school days, but all of our schools are still closed due to an ongoing strike. Hopefully things will get settled - with the appropriate funds going where they are needed - and we’ll be able to resume the ordinary timetable once again. The big reveal is still a few months away, and I’m very excited about sharing the news with you when it’s time.

What are you working on right now?
