What is it about them that just saps one's motivation? I have SO much work to do, but all I feel like doing is getting stuck into my garden or doing something creative.

I think it's the fact that I just haven't had the time to do any of my crafts lately and it's making my soul itch. I want to pull out my beads and make some jewellery, finally get to work painting on the canvases that are waiting for me, mosaic the outdoor table I want to restore or even just make a couple of birthday cards. Anything will do!

I've been working into the evenings on this ghostwriting project and when I get time out, all I want to do is spend it with TSC vegging out with a DVD or doing something else that doesn't require me to think.

But I need to think - I need to think creatively. Creative thought is different to work mode thinking and I need it to keep me inspired and (semi) sane.

Thankfully this weekend is a long weekend (yay for Women's Day on Mon), and aside from some work and having a few friends around on Sunday eve, we have nothing planned.

So if I can just push through today with the work, I can reward myself with some craft time tomorrow.

Have a fab weekend.

I know exactly what you mean. I keep on picking up a ball of wool and a crochet hook and making random little square. Because my brain needs to do something like that! Fortunately this weekend I will be cooking up a storm and getting stuck into the garden; so that should help the creativity bit for a while!

I so know what you mean. This week i have taken time out and scrapped up a storm - and loved every minute of it.

Happy weekend and here's to much creating!

You know doing something creative will actually energise you, yet it's so hard to break away and take time for yourself when you have a lot of work to do. I hope the long weekend gives you the opportunity to get some rest

I am also in a state of inaction.
