Ways to battle spring fever and stay productive?
Kate, can you open your blinds, open your windows, take your crafts to a park with you, go on a picnic and take your drawing tools, get in a cool car and go for a ride and draw while you ride, just craft at night, get together with friends and take a big tent out to a field and craft in the tent.... ???
But then, when it gets a little bit warmer I suppose I have a very good excuse to just get outside and spend time there instead of anything else. Right now the spring is just in a colder phase with lots of daylight - which should be ideal for crafting, mmm. Maybe I'll start to concentrate TOMORROW... :)
I think I WILL be bringing my business books out to some park to read outside. But still... focusing on biz books when there are people to watch?? Challenging. ;)
I wish the battery on my laptop had a longer power supply. It only lasts 2 hours.
I just took a bunch of buttons on the train when I went out of town this weekend and ended up with some cool new button jewelry made by the end of the trip! Then when I had some time to kill over the weekend I went to a cafe, got out my little bead kit and knocked out a few pairs of earrings.
since you're a journal maker, kateblack, I'm sure you already do this, but I also just spend time with my artist's journal/sketchbook brainstorming designs for metal clay and polymer clay pendants, or to map out jewelry construction. I can take the journal anywhere, and it's relatively low key and easy--just doodling, but sometimes a good idea comes out of it.
