World watercolor month Day 11 :Art Journal Entry

 Here’s a ‘summer veiw’ of last a trip to My mom’s. Wish we could have stayed longer. It was nice. Today’s warm-up watercolor became me playing Catch-up as well. 😁 Such is life. Scribbles and bad handwriting actually look pretty good together. Lol. ❤️

  I can’t be the only one who finds sloppiness kinda cool. 😳

Night Owl Chronicles : Lyme Warriors Project & Creative Fear Blocks. . . 

It’s really really coming together. Just check out those colors! Match made in silky fabric heaven. 😇❤️ How are my fellow night owls doing tonight? ❤️ 
   It’s time for a bit of randomness to help sooth my tired soul. I wanna talk about CREATIVE FEAR for a sec. Creative Fear is that block we sometimes get right when we are about to sit down and start crafting. You know the one. 😏 The , I-know-I-need-to-sew-but-I-have-to-vacuum-first block. 🙄 Oh! Or the, if-I-don’t-throw-a-third-load-of-laundry-in-RIGHT-NOW-my-head-will-surely-explode block. Sound familiar? Yeah, me too. Almost everyday, I’m talking myself in and out of project I’m excited to work on. So, if I’m so excited , why do I keep avoiding it? Creative Fear that I’ll screw up. Yep, something so simple and non existent makes getting my day started that much harder. I know I can’t be alone in this. 

   Look, the first thing you have to do, as I did, is accept that fear is normal and even healthy. If you keep ignoring it, you’ll keep ignoring the creativity clawing it’s way out of your brain. You’ll slip up and miss a great opportunity to someone who took that scary first step. Once you acknowledge it, you can think of the worse case scenario. After you do and realize that the worst case scenario isn’t so bad, you’ll decide whether or not you use your fear as a crutch (creative block) or the necessary blocks to reach your creative goals? 

   I’m just saying. You are not alone and you will get through this creative fear block. Trust me. Because there are millions of these moments you will encounter for the rest of your life. Why not take one scary leap so that all the others you come across don’t seem so far to jump anymore. Happy night owning, fellow artisans. I hope this helped someone out there. ☺️ Do you have any all-the-time creative fear blocks?
