I’ve been feeling a bit stuck lately.
Most likely it’s that post-success doldrum you fall into after a really awesome experience.
Everything sort of goes back to the way it was before and you feel like you ought to have learnt some amazing lesson as a result of said experience.
But I know it’s all just part of the ebb and flow of an artists’ experience.
And I know I did learn a lot from the RAW Showcase, that’s for certain. It was just a matter of getting my mind back into the paper art mode.
Which I thought would be super difficult after RAW. But actually, no.
It really surprised me the other day when I made one small change to my environment, and all of a sudden I felt uplifted, inspired and ready to conquer like crazy.
It was literally just the act of hanging up a bunting that changed not only the vibe and feel of my work space, but also my perspective on where I was next headed with my paper empire. Seriously cool. I should have done this months ago.
This may seem like an insignificant thing to talk about, but for me – it literally pulled me out of my rut and gave me the direction I needed.
It is also fitting, I suppose, that the bunting I chose to put up was the same one I used at the showcase.
Life trying to tell me something?
