My Creative Space


The creative process is an interesting one, and probably different for everyone. As I prepare for an upcoming market I am reminded of my creative strengths and weaknesses. I love creating new things, and I am excited that others will be able to see them soon. I am not so good, however, with the repetitive processes required to create more than one of something.

This week I have been working on more Australian biscuit and cake felt food sets. I have decided to focus on making multiples of one biscuit at a time. That means cutting, embroidering, sewing and stuffing the same biscuit or cake, over and over and over. Not sure this is really working for me. How do you handle repetitive creative tasks?



Hope you are getting lots of things done in your creative space, whether they are one offs or repetitive tasks:) And be sure to visit My Creative Space to see what others have been up to this week. Cyndy Pin It

Ah, but how great to see all those lamingtons together. I usually start with great intentions to do multiple processes and get bored before I've finished!

That look good enough to eat.
I find it easier to make multiple of something rather than one thing- maybe because it feels satisfying having 3-10 of something rather than 1 thing for a little more time to make a few more.

Cyndy, I could definitely do with one of those lamingtons right now!!

They look great. I know what you mean about the production line side of creating. It seems to be the most time efficient way to work, so there's no getting around it really. I work with the radio on listening to talk back. It's nice to have some 'company' and to think about something else while you do the stuff that doesn't require too much concentration.

How good do those lamingtons look:)
I'm no good with repetitive things either.
