Valorie Clifton is having a Bead Giveaway. A Yummy Bead Giveaway. Not only is she looking to build her blog following ( sound familiar ) but she is looking to find the answer to that impending question we all face. " Lack of Motivation ". How do you or I stay motivated and what have we done to motivate outselves on projects? I know, we all have a ton of UFO ( Unfinished Projects ) where we look and say, " Did I start that last year? The year before? Darn, where is the pattern? " and of course there are just mornings where you do not even want to think about picking up a needle or a set of pliers. But it is a good question and I hope I gave a good answer.
Of course, I shared for you all on Facebook and subscribed to her blog. Not sure how I missed her blog as she is one of the original BEAD MAVENS. But these are my thoughts on how to stay motivated.
1.) I make myself participate in a beading Round Robin. It keeps my calendar set and keeps me focused on priorities. I bead in a Art Doll group and our ladies change at the start of each round robin keeping us fresh with ideas.
The next one will get groans but it keeps me focused and darn do I come up with some great ideas to boot.
2.) I get up one hour before the household, either 4:00 am or 5:00 am. Walk the dogs, make the coffee....the SHIZAM......I start working. When the household leaves I am already in the groove.
