I recently had dinner with my friend Dr. Craftenstein and asked her how she handled 'craft burnout'. In February this past year, I worked intensely on some magazine and book submissions and found that after I dropped those projects in the mail, I just could not get interested in creating anything new. My wise friend said she moved to different things when she got tired of one type of crafty project. I thought about it and realized that I have been working on stamping cards and art projects almost exclusively for quite some time and maybe I should branch out a bit.
Thus began my felting adventures. Oh my goodness - I cannot pass a thrift store without scouring it for 100% wool sweaters to felt in the washer. A great deal of my time on the internet is spent poring over felt project patterns and in the evenings I am stitching on something while the tv is on. And yes, I did get my stamping groove back eventually.
