Sparking Up with a Photo Safari

by Amy of Bumble Belly Designs

Much like the seasons here in New England, I go through hot and cold phases. I will have bursts of creativity where I am frustrated that I
can't create fast enough and I'll make journal entries so the ideas aren't lost. Then there are the "blank" times. They sneak up on me when I'm in a production phase and building inventory to get ready for a show. After the show, I feel burnt out and nothing comes.
This year, I have started to take short "photo safari's" to fuel the spark. Changing it up and going back to photography is like hanging
out with an old friend. My goal this year is to work steadily so I am not overwhelmed right before a show. With three times as many shows
as last year scheduled, this is my survival strategy for the year.


  1. beautiful! great post - i always look forward to yours knowing that they will be visually delicious :)

  2. I totally hear you on the creativity burst and burnout... I did my first craft show in November, and didn't want to even LOOK at my stash for about a month after.

    I really like your "photo safari" idea -- just out of curiosity, what camera/lens do you use? These photos are really nice.
