it's the little things

lately, i've been feeling like i've been in at the bottom of an uncreative ditch. i know i'm capable of making some neat things, but i just need to get out of this ditch. i've been thinking about this a lot lately and i think there are some things i'm doing that aren't helping matters much. so i will remedy them as follows:

1. drop the remote (even if there is a two day project runway marathon. no one human being needs that much project runway)
*remedy: listen to more music (hello, the new girl talk is bangin) and catch up on my podcasts (radiolab is supposed to have it's fifth season premiered soon, i can't wait!)

2. ma'am, step away from the internet (ohnotheydidnt! is not necessary in life)
*remedy: read a design book or research an artist or clean things that are dirty

3. command+q the photoshop//indesign (my retina's need a break)
*remedy: instead of playing tetris in my spare time, i'll hop on my new sewing machine and bang out something that's fun to make.

so, i hope this works. if you have any ideas on how to get out of a creative block let a sister know, i think i need all the help i can get.

Well, Des, I think you're on the right track to ditch technology. TV is fun, but not inspiring :)
Christa tells me you're doing working class studio this summer. What's that like? Made any books lately?
