inspiration filling my head


inspiration filling my head, originally uploaded by whizzme.

my head is bursting, it is heavy with the weight of inspiration it has absorbed this week. Wednesday I bundled up all the magazines lying around the house that I hadn't read yet. I lugged this assortment into the library with notebook, pens and scissors. Feeling like a school kid with a project to complete I sat there until I had read every single one. Phew! I emerged out into the beautiful sunshine filled day, bleary eyed and overwhelmed with ideas. My head is still reeling two days later, But, funnily enough I'm feeling more focused and a little more strategic about my crafting. I'm concentrating on a main focus for my shop endeavours, which includes some branding - you know tags, wrapping etc., quality testing with air and water and continuity. I've narrowed my yarn projects into chevron and hexagon themes. Suddenly those doctoral research skills are coming in to play again - who knew?! Wow you might think - doesn't she sound organised and focused?! It's OK, I haven't added that tag to my banner for nothing you know - I'll be back to my chaotic, procrastinating self by next week no doubt :) In the mean time while this alien life form inhabits my head I'm getting done what I can.

This weekend we are off to Hamilton to visit family, so the hexagon's a packed ready for some steady progress - I'll let you know how that goes :)

P.s. it hasn't stopped me lusting after this and this though.

I didn't know you were going away, hope you have a ball. Is this three weekends in a row. I have just decided that my blog is really really boring so on the holidays I need you to come over and show me a few things and how to add links etc. Thanking you in advance.

Wow, love your way of getting organised, and sounds like it paid off. I'd be interested in knowing which mags provided some inspiration. Also, loved the mosaic - thanks for putting it together...

I'm a procrastinator too. Always full of good intentions & then leave it 'til the last possible second. I've got a planner for the creative procrastinator which makes me laugh & also provides another distraction from the task at hand!!! I hope your weekend away was lovely.

Love Kirsty
