Business-wise, the last few months, actually most of this year, have been a whirlwind for me. Everything seems to be happening at once. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t have it any other way – this is what I’ve been aiming towards for 4 years – however every time another day goes by without me spending any time at my workstation ‘creating’, I feel a little sad too.
Running a business, any business, drains so much of your time and energy and whilst I knew this when I started out, I never thought about the impact this could have on my creativity. There are some days – even weeks at a time – where I have lost my creative spirit completely and this scares me. I decided that I needed to balance the ‘business’ side of thing with my ‘creation’ time. It seems to be working well and I’ve had more time to just ‘play’ – a refreshing reminder of how much I love the wonderful world of polymer clay!
