Welcome to my blog which follows 'Designs by Isis' handmade jewellery, interspersed with my life as a wife & mum of three young boys.

Where is my umph ?

I am currently waiting for my crafting enthusiasm to return. During the day, when I am running around being a mum and housewife etc, I have a real sense of wanting to bead. Then, as soon as I put the kids to bed my enthusiasm plummets and I find myself plonked infront of the tv watching some interesting but not at all necessary ch 4 documentary such as Embarrasing bodies, Relocation, Super nanny etc!

My question is whether other crafters experience this or am I just a lazy so & so who needs a push to get things done ! Sent via my iPhone

I am completely the same! Always want to craft when I can't, then when I have the time, I am too tired, wish we could find a solution - then we could take over the world! x

that's me sitting there next to you on the sofa lisa trying to grab a piece of your chocolate. reading other people's blogs i think its happening to quite a few of us, i just don't have the time during the day or the enthusiasm during the evening, i'm hoping that once this nice wether is here for keeps we will all start feeling better and brighter and our creative umph will show its "pretty" head!!!!

I get that all the time! Couldn't wait to get home to bead and then lost all enthusiasm, despite having two projects ready to go and a wigjig just arrived! I think kits are a good idea at those times- just finished a beaded bail kit and found a new love for delicas :)

I feel the same way, I only have enthusiasm for commissions and forums. But without making new stuff for shops no one will know what I make!! I am the same as Ollee, I too have gone back to seed beads as I can sit and watch the same unecessary t.v as you Lisa!
