My sympathies! When I feel ‘cornered’, I clean and organize. Yup. It
is the opportune time to take care of tool maintenance (lube, polish,
sharpen, etc.) and sort stones (potential inspiration there!!) and
sweep the corners and so forth. While you do this, play some sort of
music that is different from your usual tunes.
An ongoing exercise in creativity is the never-ending chain. I pull
out bits of scrap such as bezels, cut-off earring clips, dented
Then make some links to add to my chain. When there are several
links, it’s fun to arrange them and add to the chain. Remake that
bezel and set a funky stone on a link. Fold-form that sheet into. who
knows what. Play with the mill and texture wire. Melt stuff - could
come out really cool.
And last, tell yourself that this too shall pass. You will be back
with new ideas in no time!
Judy in Kansas, where the zinnias are still going strong and I found
some hidden beans on the vines. Going to cover the jalapenos and
maybe keep them in production.
