I’m just popping in to a) thank you guys so much for all the comments! You’re the best! and b) ask if there’s anyone else like me out there, because this is driving me crazy – I am only creative about ten minutes each day. I’m serious. And those ten minutes happen to be the ones right before I fall asleep. I’ll be dozing off and then suddenly *pop* I’ll get an idea…and if I don’t write it down immediately, it’s gone forever.
So I always have to keep a notebook on my nightstand where I can jot down whatever thoughts pop into my head. 98% of my ideas for sketches, layout themes, color combinations and journaling come from this book:
I think this is why I’m so unproductive at crops when I have to come up with ideas on the spot. I guess I should copy my sketches to a more portable notebook I can bring with me…
Anyway, I should go to bed now (and eagerly await my ten minutes of creativity), so I’ll finish with a layout about JK. Just because he’s been an extra good husband today :o)
(Note how I’ve stapled the flowers for added masculinity. Heh.)
