I’m slowly learning the lesson that there must be a creative balance in the artful life. I can write late into the night until my eyes cross, and I’ll probably get some good stuff out, but I must also take a break. I’m really glad that I gave myself the Color My Monday project for the week – it’s making me play and relax and feel less anxious about my writing.
Stitching is a form of quiet therapy for me, a way to replenish my inner well of creativity. Playing with paper and sewing all over the pages actually gives my mind a break – and you’d be amazed at the helpful ideas that sneak into my brain during this time. I have to keep my manuscript nearby so I can jot down the lovely suggestions that my muse slips to me.
Here’s a little peek of the project – a pattern all poked out and ready for sewing. I can’t wait to show you the finished layout. Just a few more stitches and a little stamping… See you soon!
