How funny that this five relates to my previous post.
Five on Friday/My Muse
1. What inspires you?
-Eveything! Other people's art & craft work, images, music, writing, fabric, flowers, photographs, people, family...
2. What blocks your creativity?
-My son. While he is a source of creativity he often prevents me from creating. For example, I used to participate in Illustration Friday-but don't get much of a chance now.
3. Do you do anything special to get your creative juices flowing?
-Not really. I do have several photo albums where I've stashed images, postcards and other items which inspire me. So I can look through there. Sometimes just looking at my art supplies makes me want to make something.
4. What time of day do you feel most inspired?
5. How do you like to express your creative energy?
-Any way I can. I find that lately my energy has been directed more in finding ways to entertain my son but I love drawing, painting, sewing, working with clay, writing and photography. When I can't do that, it may be in the way that I cook dinner or prepare a dessert. Sometime when I send out a letter, I embellish the envelope with drawings, stickers, or stamps. I try and do something creative everyday.
