Changes on the way
I've been doing a lot of thinking about my jewelry business and have decided that I need a creative jump start. The first year following my mom's death I was all go, go, go and then a sort of grey cloud emerged and took over. All my adrenaline was used up. I was suffering a deep depression. I've been struggling with getting my mojo back ever since. Granted, I've had bursts of creativity throughout the past years but it just hasn't been the same. I've always been melancholy and that's okay with me. I can work with that. In fact, it kind of fits in with my focus on funerary jewelry. I just need to get my creative juices really flowing again. Exercise has done wonders for my mood. Great friends and family (and my many cats) who support me are also wonderful. But I ain't getting any younger! It's GO time again.
So, I've decided that I need to give myself some projects/ goals. One thing I would like to start doing here on this blog is a weekly art/jewelry project. I'm about 90% sure of the parameters so far. I'm thinking of some sort of weekly reliquary project; maybe post the raw materials on Sunday and then the finished piece by Saturday.
What do you think? Have any suggestions on getting back one's creative mojo?
