The frustrations of being a crafter who overthinks…
I always hear the saying ‘writer’s block’, but I never actually hear anyone talk about or mention ‘crafter’s block’. I do wonder whether it exists or not? It must do?
I often get in the mood to craft, to try and create something different, but when I look at all of my craft materials I get a MASSIVE block. I never know what to do, where to start, what to try next. I find it really annoying as I really want to do something creative, but my mind won’t let me. Does anyone ever feel the same way?
I have wool, beads, buttons, scrabble letters, threads, pens, pencils… the list goes on and on! The possibilities I could create are endless! But yet, I still struggle to find something to do.
Even after browsing sites such as Pinterest, I get plenty of ideas that are amazing and I would love to create something similar… but I still always struggle with the starting point.
Maybe I should stop overthinking it all (I do that a lot, with everything). Maybe if I stopped worrying so much about the outcome/end-product, then I may create something different! If I just let my mind run free and stopped thinking, then I may be able to achieve something? What do you think?
What do you do to get rid of your ‘crafter’s block?’ What do you find works well for you?
I would love to hear your views! Feel free to leave a reply! 🙂
