Finding Inspiration

Well, it seems it’s been a long time since I last made a blog entry, so I decided to remedy the situation. Unfortunately, not only have I not had time, but I also lack inspiration. I have so many ideas floating in my head for bead jewelry, different small projects here and there, polymer clay projects… but, for some reason, I just haven’t felt like tackling any of them. I have bought materials, gathered ideas, drawn sketches, and still nothing. I guess I just need a jump-start!

Our holidays were great, we spent a lot of time with the family in the countryside, then went on a trip to the mountains. School has been doing great, I’ve had a large amount of projects to finish, but now I am only one final away from the finish line (for the semester, anyways). My job is still there, and I actually took an offer to teach a TOEFL class for 10 weeks. I have enjoyed several shows on TV, bought several books to read, and some with craft projects, and I think that finally, finally I see light in the tunnel.

As of right now, I am thinking of revamping the blog to give it a different feel. Not sure what exactly yet, but maybe a small change will do the trick. In addition, I am fully planning on crushing that fear of ruining the perfectly beautiful polymer clay block and trying my luck – if it doesn’t look good, then maybe something else will!

I have missed all of you, blog-friends. I have to admit I haven’t even been to my own blog in over two months, and I am eager to find out what you all have been up to – maybe even find the inspiration there, with you!

In the meantime, here’s some beautiful pictures that may hint what project I want to try next (in addition to all the projects I have already started and not finished). Hopefully!

And so, here’s to a new beginning!
