Creative Block

I can't believe it's been over a month sit I sat down and wrote a blog post. So much has happened in that month! Soccer season eneded, school is finally out (which come with a ton of time consuming activities!), I started a new venture with Nerium (that warrents a whole new post, coming soon...). I also hit a creative block! This happens to me often, usually when I am so busy I don't know which way is up. I just sit in front of the computer stomped, sitting thinking about so many things, standing in the sewing room staring at the machines. This happens to me often, but this last month was bad! I haven't pulled out fabric in weeks, thought about outfits or shirts, in weeks. Unless it's an order needed to complete, I just didn't want to think!

So, yesterday I got my letter which welcomed me to the Virginia Beach Christmas Market. I am super excited because I have only heard positive things about this show. It's yet another 3 day show, with thousands of people planning to attend. It's the weekend of Thanksgiving, so everyone is thinking Christmas. The week following this show is the Christmas Bizarre Bazaar, which is 4 days long!! So I looked at my oldest daughter and told her she needs to start thinking Christmas. New towel designs, Christmas gift ideas, kids clothes, you name it someone better think of it! That's when she turned to me and said "It's 100 degrees outside, I will not be thinking Christmas for awhile!"

She's so right! How can I think holiday season? And how do I know what the newest holiday fad will be? Still infinity scarves or something new?

So this brings me back to my first problem, I've still hit a creative block!! I'm sitting here in front of the computer forcing myself to write in hopes that it will get my mind flowing. Maybe it will result in some fabric cutting and dress making later on!!

I know I am not the only one who gets like this, so tell me how do you get over the hump?
