Missing mini muse
I really can't decide what it is. I have struggled with finding my miniature muse the past year, maybe even can say two years. I won't say it has been missing completely, I just feel it has come and gone more than in the past. I know that my interest in scrapbooking certainly pulls the energy from one to the other, but I just look at my desk (in the bedroom) and whatever project is there and I walk away. Even when I have tried putting away that languishing project to start on something fresh, it works only for a short time. I know that is okay that I am not so into minis right now. I am not totally out of it. I still am very interested in my mini clubs (groups) online. I still enjoy reading the posts. Some days I have a lot more interest than others, but I would say that is normal. Not everyone wants to hear about the ______ email after email. In those cases, I just skip over it. No big deal. on the other hand, when I walk by my scrapbook area ( it is in the living room and is temporary) I want to sit down and do somethings. Maybe not every single day, but more often of late. Certainly my desire to scrapbook the photos I have printed is a good thing. Why let them sit for years as printed photos when I could have just have easily left them on my computer? So yes it is good I am working on those. I really shouldn't let it bother me. I guess it;s just that I want to do minis and the inspiration just isn't there. i know better than to force it. That takes the fun out of it. It makes it stressful and I don't want minis to be stressful. Avoiding stress in minis is one major reason I am not trying to make things to sell. I really love the things I make and I want to keep them for my enjoyment. Sure I love to share the photos and show them off, but not often i make and give away. The things I have sold that were once my darlings, the darling-ness wore off and i could part with them. Seriously, I can't say that money has been an issue relating to this. Sure this year already I have spent money on minis, but in other ways I was glad I didn't have the extra to spend when the opportunities came because I am just collecting right now. I don't want to be collecting... I want to be making. That's why I miss my mini muse. I wonder what her name would be....
