For the past few years, I've felt like my brain was turning to mush. Just a total creative block. I can't even tell you how depressed it made me. It's frustrating to know that you have this passion inside of you to create things and do things, but just not have the physical or mental energy to make it all come together.
But lately, I find myself swirling with ideas. My mind has been constantly on the move, just racing from one creative point to the next. It's all I can do to try and keep up and jot things down to remember them for later. I haven't had a creative burst like this for so long, and I have to tell you, I am utterly enjoying it!
I find myself wishing, though, that I had somebody to bounce some ideas around with. My journals are bursting with ideas, and I'm pumped, but I also need to calm down just a tad and find a way to focus. Anybody out there want to be brainstorm buddies? Hit me up!
Anyway, these are some of the projects I'm currently working on:
* Planning Dom's 6th birthday party and attempting to design my own invitations (EEEEKKK!). More on that next month.
* Brainstorming ideas for a complete makeover and branding of the blog. I'm looking for some consistency in my message and I really just need a space that reflects who I am.
* Researching part-time freelance writing opportunities. I still have a lot to learn, but this is definitely something I need to pursue. Writing is a big part of who I am. And I would really love to challenge myself and also build a portfolio.
* Coming up with activities to do with the boys for the 25 Days of Christmas project that I'm working on. It's just like it sounds - one activity each night from 1-25 December. Clearly, I'm insane. Ha. But I'm hoping to start a new tradition with them and share my love of the holidays. And of course, inspire myself to create new things! More on that.. yep, you guessed it, in December. I'm such a tease.
So tell me - How do you express yourself? Or what do you do when you find yourself in a creative block?
