I have been going through a breakdown/ breakthrough period over the last few weeks with Blocks in my Creativity, Thinking about what to write & where to put it all in my mind…
And then last night after spending the last few weeks over my birthday period, having a little time out for my mind to take a few balls out of the bucket and create the space to think.
So to painting. Which Im becoming to get more and more pleasure out off when I get the finished work to my creativity.. Painting this time the living room off an old victorian terraced house..
Was Shabby now sheek. 🙂
Here are some creations so far this week –

Pizza made with left over Fresh Baked Nan from the bakery around the corner – The Best Pizza Base Ever made with mixed bacom ham Veg & Spicy hot sauce.
So to say the creativity was lost was bullsh&t. My creativity had just decided to place itself somewhere else to give me the inspiration to write about it.
The motto being that iff you are stuck on a project. Go take a break from it on something else and go back to it, or is it also because i like to work spontaneously on 100 different things at any one time to keep life interesting 🙂
And after doing all the painting etc, my mental health has got a little better than it was at a few weeks ago, my energies reborn, and thinking back to normal…
Maybe its that sometimes you need the creative space to work on what you want to most.
What inspires you?
Where does your creativity go when its stuck? Never say to yourself Im giving up on ‘that’ because im stuck. Go take a break away from it, get creative elsewhere, and then go back to it.
Take a look at the positive you got from taking the ‘time out’ and go back and have fun on whatever you where ‘stuck’ on and apply it back to it:-)
