Confessions Of A Crafter – Out Of Inspiration
So recently I have been ready for springtime but my motivation for crafting something has not been very high. I don’t know what it is, I have so much yarn (stay tuned for a haul!) that is perfect for spring and summer, but I have no idea what to make with it. I thought I would let you know how I deal with crafters block and a confessions of a crafter – out of inspiration. Hopefully it will help me find something to do!
I like to scroll through pinterest when I get lost and I need to find something to make. I’ll search things like “spring knits” “Spring fashion” and “knit fashion.” I think it’s good to see what’s fashionable and see if you can recreate it – those are my favorite projects to make! I am also on the hunt for some fun DIY’s and kid crafts. Know anything good!?
Recently I have been scrolling through instagram like it is my jay oh bee. I love seeing your work and what you’re working on. If you ever want to send me something you’re working on to show me and help me with some inspo you can tag me, or just use the hashtag #1001knits and I will see it. Also! Make sure to turn on post notifications so you don’t miss any of my photos
I like to see what’s fashionable in the magazines. I think that helps me out but sometimes it makes me just want to buy all the things I can’t afford. One day.
So I usually never swatch, I hate it. But when I’m trying to think of something to do, I realize the benefit of it. I can swatch an idea without working an entire piece only to realize I hate it. Happens every time.
What Do You Do?
What do you do to find inspiration? Help a sista out!
