Taming my Creativity

In this post I said that the reason I am now working on themed collections is that I don't anymore have the luxury of time enough to constantly create new things, but I am finding that having to put my mind to working on a fixed theme has another effect, aside from that of saving me precious time, and one that I am equally glad for.

I talked about it in my Etsy Featured Seller interview back in 2008, and up till now I still feel that I need to tame my creative exuberance, because while it helps me come up with some crazy-loveliness, I have to admit that it also leads to me making some downright ugly things too.

The sense of having certain mental controls is also comforting somehow, it focuses my energies. This path is interesting.

I think sometimes you have to make the ugly things that dont work to find the things that do work and are lovely. saying that I have always lacked the dicipline of being able to sit down and stick to one thing until it is done and not get distracted by other things.

Feyza, we MUST shop together one day when I go up to Paris!

Apryl, if you saw the giant box filled with ugliness I have in my sewing room you would change your mind :)

Yes, Dana, I love how this new process is teaching me discipline. You should write something in your blog about this. I would love to learn how you are going about it.
