Stuck

I know it happens to all of us but when it happens to you it's like BAM..what the heck?? Yep I'm stuck. I've got these two pieces in the works but neither are speaking to me. It's like my creative mojo is lost and when this happens you often wonder when or if it's going come back.
I suppose it's the goddess's way of saying "you need a break dear, but you just don't know it". Perhaps she's suggesting it's time to step back, reflect, get inspired by new things...who knows. But I'll listen, impatient as I might be to get going again.

My daughter is home for Thanksgiving break this week. I think I'll use this time to be with and enjoy her. She is always a wealth of inspiration for me and spending some serious one on one time with her may be just what the doctor ordered for this ailment.

I love them already loopy.... the little white faces remind me of a masquerade ball full of bawdy powdered up opera singers a la mozart... I hope you feel better after some much needed R & R. It seems as though you were possessed by the creativity demon there for a few weeks, and it left you pretty spent! Be well, and give lots o' love to lil' loopy girl!

hope you get through this period as quickly and painlessly as possible
I usually swich mediums when I get stuck ...just doodling helps, but then again sometimes it's just a need to get AWAY! from the table, pencils, etc.
btw the dools look fantastic.

BTW.....your dolls are ADORABLE as always. I do enjoy them, they always make me smile:)
