Easing back into creativity....

Ok... I took the plastic wrap off a sketchbook today.  Does that count for creative effort?  Or do I actually have to write in the thing???  I'm thinking I need to draw a big line through three or four pages just to break the ice.  An empty sketch pad is intimidating.  Perhaps I should just leave it on the kitchen table with pencils next to it... daughter #3 would happily make some marks in it to get me started!
   Ummm... I need to unearth the sewing machine, too.  The mending pile got out of hand again.  Mending is not very stimulating.  It has not given me a single creative urge yet!
But the calendar has flipped to August.  Something about August stirs the creative cobwebs.  A few days ago, I pulled out a pattern to make for a friend.  I even had a creative thought skitter across my consciousness last night.  I'll jot it down in that sketchbook as soon as kiddo #3 personalizes a couple of pages!

It sounds like a good start anyway!

I actually find that if I can't get motivated, doing the mending eases me back into sewing. Weird, huh?

It is a good start. Maybe do something as simple as drawing your name in those bubble letters and coloring them in. I like to draw geometric shapes. It won't work if you force it though.

I never like to do mending. If I don't do it right away it won't ever get done.
