That itchy feeling…

Do you ever get the itchy feeling of having an eddy of ideas and inspiration swirling around inside you, and there’s million things you’d like to do, but you’re just not sure where to start? Yeah? Well, that’s me right now.

I feel I’m being pulled in a myriad of directions with my crafting and business to the point that I can’t settle on any one thing. With the addition of my new rigid heddle loom, I now have another creative outlet to add to my already overflowing collection. And even with that, being new and shiny; after spending a few hours today weaving, I’m sorta weaved out but still obsessed to the point I can’t settle to another craft. Oh boy am I in trouble. And because it’s the weekend (and I’ve made the decision not to work on weekends), I don’t want to spend time on business stuff even though I REALLY want to. I have this irrational anxiety that if I don’t work on it NOW I will forget all my ideas.

I feel paralysed. Do I stick to my no work rule or do I just go with the inspiration?

Do you ever get the itchy feeling? How do you address it? Do you have any suggestions for me? They would most certainly be welcome. xx
