It’s been a half week of Oh My Giddy Aunt – in 3D digital vision and surround sound. I’m in a spin. A lovely someone with a Seize the Day attitude made a suggestion at the close of business last week. A suggestion that seemed so utterly, intensely, intrinsically (bear with me, you’ll see what I mean), gob-smackingly ridiculous. It still is. My creative head space is a blithering mess.
No matter that I was living a blissfully un-craft-committed existence up until Friday afternoon. No fear I have not an Etsy or a MadeIt online shop set-up. Do we think my extensive market experience (a stint at the school fete) counts? Hmn. Yet there I am, signing up for the Incubator at next year’s Stitches & Craft Show.
Have I yet mentioned that I haven’t anything to sell?
Hence the conniption. Now that I’ve gone and connipted in public, there really is no backing out. Yes, I fully understand the likelihood of falling flat on my face (though not yet which bits will be those to trip me up) and no, I do not expect to cover my costs.
So here’s the why:
WHY NOT? Give it a hearty good shot, burn a few kazillion midnight hours between now and May, take any advice thrown my way. Above all, step outside a comfort zone and do something I just don’t yet know about. It could be one hell of an adventure. At the very least I get to look the eighty year old me in the eye and say ‘I gave it a whirl’.
I’m just waiting for my head to get to here:
So I can locate the creative head space and have a largish think.
Spin on over to Kirsty’s to check out more Creative Spacers...
