I just found a great blog Hemidemisemiquaver Designs while I was checking out one of my daily faves Craftgossip.com. Becky has this great info about how to organize and rethink your crafting.
I can definitely relate to her theme of Imitate when it comes to trying something new. Trust me, I am a great copier of other people's wonderful ideas. Sometimes I imitate something only once before making it my own, while other times I have to make a few "non-originals" before I find my groove.
When it comes to Assimilating or finding new uses for things I already have...I've got this one down baby! Ask anyone who knows me, I can find a new way to use something. Don't believe me? Check out this, or this, or...even this. Unfortunately, BunBun believes I need to do more crafting and less finding of supplies.
Sometimes I'm more Innovative than other times. For me this ties into the assimilating aspect. I might get a great idea while looking at something as simple as a pair of mittens, while other times I could be surrounded by "stuff" to spark creativity and....NOTHIN'.
All in all, I will definetily be checking Becky's blog often to see what I can Imitate, Assimilate, and Innovate from her terrific posts.
