"Elimintae any idea that requires you to buy supplies"........I still need to work on that one Dixie ;0)

I love the idea behind this list. I have so many ideas going on my mind at once that I feel like I am frozen in indecision. Your list will be very helpful to weed through my extensive list!

Thanx

I love the ideas and the way you present them, awesome! I always thing to use the stuff I already have, so i don't have to run to the store (as much fun as that is!)

These are some great ideas for narrowing the scope, Dixie. I especially love the concept eliminating any that require new supplies. I KNOW there have been times when I didn't make anything at all, because I was subconsciously putting off starting...using the excuse "but I don't have everything I need to get started." So shopping is in order, which is another stalling tactic.

Me, too, Dottie!

Hi, Diane - I really understand being frozen in indecision. It's helpful for me to break things down for tasks, too. I reframe from "I'm going to make a (hopefully) wonderful piece of folk art" to "I will make doll arms." Describing specifics of what I need to do without expectations of how the product will turn out is helpful for me.

I think we make MORE creative work when we work within limitations.

Dixie Redmond said...

Yes, that need for one more supply before I begin really is a stalling tactic. :-)
