I’m assuming everyone goes through this on some level, especially those who work other unrelated jobs as well.
I work full time as deputy head of house in a busy all through school (ages 4-18). This time of year is incredibly busy (exams, tying up the end of the year, plans for next year etc) I seem to strike the balance right in the winter when I come home & hide away in my studio on evenings and weekends when it’s dark by 4pm, but when the weather eventually gets nice, I find it so hard to get any artwork done- and even over my summer holidays I can’t seem to focus on it!
I just feel that because I’m inside most of the day at work, it’d be a crime if I stayed in on evenings and weekends when it’s lovely and warm and sunny!
I’ve also got an allotment too (since January) so end up spending all my free time there. But I then start to feel guilty that I haven’t created anything new & therefore don’t have anything to talk about or promote- I feel a bit rubbish promoting stuff I made months ago.
Does anyone else go through this and have any cures maybe? Don’t get me wrong- I love my artwork & the process, but it’s very much an inside thing & I also love the outside! Does anyone almost make their crafts on a seasonal basis?
