This is something I’m working on. I’m going to post work in progress once in awhile even though I normally hate to do that, but in an effort to let go of that unrealistic perfectionism, I thought it might be a good idea. Posting things might also make me more accountable. I don’t know what it is exactly, but this week has been a rather strange week. A break in normal routine for sure and I don’t feel like I got a single thing done, but also losing some focus on all these ideas that I’ve had in my head. I know that it’s normal in the cycle of creativity to question the validity of what you’re doing once in a while, so I guess I’m just stuck in the bottom of that cycle. I’m starting a short 4 day freelance project tomorrow so I’m hoping that will kick me back into gear, but I’m also really ready for the week to be over so that I can start new again. Anyone else feel like this week just dragged by?

    Looking forward to the WIP posts!

    And yes, by golly, this has been a weird week, something my work colleagues and I were moaning about this morning. Lots of unusual things afoot, I feel the need to hit the reset button.

    Good luck with all your bits and bobs!

    I seriously could’ve written this post. This week has been dragging and my creativity and productivity went down the drains. I’m wondering where the restart button is.

    Hope your 4 day project will help!

    btw, very interesting photos, hope to see the finished product soon!

    weeks are dragging yes, I have my son in a beautiful child care 3 days a week and work is not kicking yet, makes me feel so self indulgent, but really I do make us of my time and arts is one way I do that

    I can relate

    My 3 girls were off school Tues,Wed, & Thurs. due to the weather & we were talking about how fast the week goes by when they have snow days but when they are at school,it goes by so slowly.Although when it snows,the day seems to take forever to end & I hate that b/c we can’t leave home.Whatever you are working on looks neat (do people still use that word?) 🙂

    Looks beautiful, words in a tea bag to be brewed.

    This week was a very quick one indeed.

    Kindest greetings.

    um yes. this week has definitely dragged. but really intrigued by your new little project! Looks like you guys got some crazy snow there!

    Yes, this week has totally dragged by. I feel like I’ve been in some kind of weird daze for most of it and definitely more on the unproductive side too. I’m going to just chalk it up to February. IMO, everything really starts to stink right around mid-February, but we should be outta this by March, when I can finally see the light at the end of the winter tunnel.

    I started 6 weeks of radiation therapy this week for malignant salivary gland cancer… Did it drag? Oh yeah….. Unproductive? For my life other than Cancer, yes.
