Overcome

Sometimes, I am completely overcome with the urge to create. Over the years this has taken many different forms - food, crafts, photos, music, stories, designs, communities.

I'm feeling more image-driven right now I think. I'm obsessed with striking images. I want to capture them with my camera, display them on my walls. Design sites around them.

It's always exciting to me when you keep company with folks who inspire you. I tend to group people in my mind and the "creative bunch" I interact with on Twitter has really fed me lately. It makes me want to put something back out there that makes me feel the same.

So rather than my usual trick of spending all of my time hung up on the "how" and "should I?", I'm just going to do it. I'll admit I did start a bit with the "how" because I needed to find and organize my tools (hence Saturday's six words). But now I'm ready to go.

If anything interesting comes together, you may just see it here. And don't worry - no cat hair mosaics. I promise.

What is this "inspiration" you talk of? I need more of that.

Have fun with the new project(s)!

If I don't create I really suffer, feel stifled and frustrated. That's ultimately why I started blogging. Look forward to seeing your stuff!

I absolutely HATE having creative withdraws, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
