Breaking Blocks

As I mentioned in my last post, I recently went through a pretty substantial creative block.  This was my first as a business owner, and it was a little unsettling.  I knew it wasn't permanent, but when you don't have the motivation or energy to do your creative work, it's a bit scary!

So how to get through a creative block?  For me, it was a combination of taking some time off, doing some completely unrelated playful things (Okay, so Kirby's Epic Yarn is slightly related), and then getting gently nudged back to the wheel by a custom order that came through.

How do you deal with creative blocks or times of lesser creativity?

Sorry for the lack of updates, folks.  I have found myself creatively blocked of late.  You know you've got issues when even the soft, fluffy fibers aren't calling your name anymore!
