In a funk

I am in a funk.  A creative funk.  A life funk. Even a weather funk. Just a plain old FUNK!!!  I feel like doing NOTHING, but yet need to do EVERYTHING.  I am sure a lot of people can understand.  But it is Tuesday and I have made a commitment to myself to do Daisy Yellow''s Prompt 6, and if I can't count on myself who CAN I count on?  So this morning I drug my sorry behind upstairs and sat down with a paintbrush and made myself take time for it.  It isn't my favorite, but I do like the meaning behind it.  I do feel like throwing a white flag up and surrendering.  It is AMAZING though how this helps me through,  creative energy runs through me, even when I feel like it is blocked.  If I once start it all comes pouring out, it doesn't have to be perfect, it is life showing up on the page and we all know life is not perfect-far from it.  SO just let yourself go, give yourself permission to embrace the imperfection.  Instead of surrendering to the rain, surrender to the sunshine!!!!

Loves to you all and remember you are AMAZING!!!

        Don't forget to get your index cards ready to make into little pieces of art!!!  
Come check it out at ICAD!!!!!!!!!  It is going to be so fun!!! Be careful though, they are addicting!!


  1. I think it's awesome!!! And you inspired me to do the same, as I am feeling VERY much the same! I love how the outcome was made out of your current feeling...that is so great! Looking forward to the ICAD challenge too! :)

  2. True... without art life would be so different. I find that going even a few days without doing something creative and I just feel out of sorts. Good for you, for pushing yourself to find some art time even when things around you weren't all peachy!

  3. Go you. Just showing up to the page helps me feel a little more connected while I am funked up. I always have a fondness for those pages, the ones that I forced myself to show up at, they hold a part of me in.

    Hoping your funk passes soon. xx
