Hmmm...I'm having a dry spell

I am in a creative funk. I have all of these ideas swirling around my head, but when it comes to sitting down and creating---NOTHING. I am currently involved in several collaborative art projects that I need to complete and mail on to the next person, but NOTHING! Maybe I am just sidetracked by the upcoming holidays.

I had a really fun Thanksgiving weekend. We went downtown (Chicago) to see the Thanksgiving Parade---it was FREEZING, but fun! Since I was out all day and had no time to cook (which I usually do on Thanksgiving), we went out to dinner! It was different, but I loved it! We may have created a new Thanksgiving tradition at our house! I went to the Circus on Sunday---and when the ringmaster said, "for children of all ages", I think he must have been speaking just to me!!!

I'm going to try to be creative later today---maybe I will have some new art pieces to post later. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend and that you are having a great day today!

I get the same way with my Ballet Choreographies. I'll sit...and sit...and sit some more....

Still sitting...

And NOTHING jumps out of my head onto the laptop or the paper. It's the craziest thing! ;o)

Glad you had a wonderful holiday! Sounds like fun!

Stumbled across your blog on the altered book site.
It is very nice and I admire your work. Your Sons artwork is devine!

Don't fret about your creative block it will leave as quick as it arrived. Just relax.

.... I can relate to feeling like this. Especially after I have been up 3 or 4 times during the night, because of the babies... and I find myself with a brush in my hand, and the mind really wants to do it, but the body refuses....*grumble*

Definitely have felt this this, Shari -- I think we all have! It's the time of year, too -- we have SO much to do and SO little time!!! Hang in there...

We all have our dry spells...and with the holidays looming, it's hard to find the time! At least for me. Plus, I find that I do a lot better in the morning, and if I wait too late in the day, forget it! But I've always been a morning person. Just hang on...it'll come!
