    Hi, I lately have been overwhelmed by the amount of crafts I have started or want to do and end up doing nothing! I end up watching Netflix on my computer or reading. I feel guilty having so many crafts and even a bit of talent and then doing nothing. How do you get out of the "slump"?
    At least I still do some housework....but that is a SURE sign that I'm not doing what I should be doing...creating!

    Find someone you wish to make something for. This, for me, usually gets my creative side moving.

    Found making a daily To Do list helps. Love to check things off. Don't list the whole project, just the part you really want to accomplish that day. I put stars next to the most imp. items. I have my work table turned so I can sort of watch TV I quilt/sew. Put your book in another room out of sight. Someone on this board had the best advice, "If it takes 2 mins. to do something...do it." I am indebted to that person.

    That helped me get a few things done today! I'm making a list and asked my sister to help me do some of the things I need help to do! Thank you!
