You know when you REALLY want to create something, but you just can’t get motivated to get it done? Yeah, that’s me right now. I was playing around with photoshop and a couple of photos I took… I just couldn’t get them to look the way I wanted. So, I stopped working on them.
I only managed to get this photo of Ruari and her grandparents (Mike’s parents) edited. And, well… I’m only “eh” about it. 🙂
I’ll come back to editing tomorrow. I find that if I get frustrated with a project, I need to walk away from it for a bit and come back later. Refreshed and ready to be creative!
Thursday’s Three: Where’s the motivation?
Where will I find it? Gotta take care of me.
1) I HAVE to remember to take some “me” time. My favorite “me” time is night time right after baby goes to bed. I try to take an hour after Ruari goes to bed to just do something for me. Browse the internet… watch TV… totally space out! Whatever. Right now I’m both browsing the internet AND watching Dexter! We just finished the 2nd season.
2) Ree from the Pioneer Woman is VERY inspiring. Whether it’s inspiring me in my photography… or giving tips on blogging. This lady is pretty amazing. Her biggest tip I need to follow right now:
“Exercise more: Blogging is an insidiously sedentary activity, and if you blog daily you should take steps to markedly increase your daily movement. Unless that movement involves eating coffee ice cream. In which case it would be better not to markedly increase your daily movement.”
I often find myself trying not to move during baby’s nap so I don’t wake her… this means I just sit here… on my computer. Hmmmm….
3) My baby. She’s been pretty inspiring. She looks pretty dang cute in any photo I take of her… if I do say so myself! 😀 My favorite to date inspiration is the tattoo photo manipulation. Which, just so happens, is for sale in my Paper Mama shop!!! 😀 I can tattoo up your babe! Or grandma, whatever!
Reminder: Today’s the last day for the photo challenge: Excitement!
