I don't know where else to post this but since its about art and craft kind of thing I put this thread here.
I am in a terrible creativity slump. Its like everything creative in me has just up and died. I have had slumps before but they have usualy resolved by now.
I do suffer from terrible bouts of Depression and I am dealing with a bout right now. But I am beginning to feel better with some new medication I am on but the creative part of me is gone. I mean GONE. I have noticed that over the past couple of years the desire to do any drawing or craft type stuff had been diminishing greatly. I make dreamcatchers and I went through a short spell where I made a few but now I just stare at my supplies and ...nothing. I usualy enter stuff into our local fair but I havent the desire to do anything and time is ticking by. Nothing comes to me. This is the worst a slump has been for me. I can't even do a simple doodling drawing of a horse or a tree or a freaking stick figure. I have even noticed of the last year that my dreamcatchers lack pizzaz and originality.
Has anyone delt with such a thing? What have you done to get through it it? I am afraid that my desire to do anything anymore in regards to art or crafty type things is leaving me for good. Can the joy of doing such things die forever? Any suggestions on jump starting me back into the creative world will be appreciated.
