you should listen!!
So... after leaving my full-time job at the beginning of the year, I've been working part-time as a contractor for my former employer until they have a new hire in place. With the additional studio time I've had available I've been busy making lots of the pieces that potters sell lots of - cups, mugs, bowls, baking dishes, those kinds of things. And while there is always a touch of creativity in them for the most part they don't feel like a creative task to me.
At the end of my work week yesterday, I was in a little funk, feeling like I really needed a creative kick in the pants and should take a break from the inventory building phase I've been in to do a few more creative pieces for a while. Of course I didn't get right into that and instead decided on getting take out from a local Asian restaurant.
Apparently... the universe thinks I should be spending my studio time more creatively too. Today's activities will including finishing up the things I already have on drying boards, yoga, grocery shopping and then back in the studio for some creative work.
Hope you have a creative day as well.
