1:12 Small Baguettes and Poppy Seed Braided Bread by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Small Baguettes and Poppy Seed Braided Bread by Bon-AppetEats
More 1:12 Scale bread, made from polymer clay.

I’ve been dragging my feet a lot the last couple of weeks when it comes to making anything. I am in a slump and it’s hard trying to get out of it, especially when all I want to do is sleep and play video games all day. I have no time for this I have two shows within two weeks of each other, but it's next to impossible to just sit down and work when you're just not feeling it. :c

I know what you mean. I can have a list a mile long (for me... ha) and just not be able to make anything... good luck. :D

It's horrible to work when you don't want to, but what it has to be done, it has to be done.

Wow. Your shading and attention to detail are just incredible, as always. Your work is always so top notch :)

And I know what you mean about being in a slump when you need to get stuff done. What I have found helps me, is I try to remember that I am doing what I love to do. And I try to either take a break to make something completely different than work to enjoy it, or I take a few hours/day off and free my mind totally and just enjoy my video games c; The time when you need a break the most is when you don't have time for one. But it will serve you well if you take one.

Something else that helps me is to get out of the house and spend a day with friends or exercising. Often enjoying time with the people I love brings me fresh motivation. There are many other types of things you could try, but those things help me. I hope you are able to find your motivation again :)

Remember there is no pressure from us on dA, so just relax, free your mind and remember why you are doing this. :) Because you love what you do.

All the best! :rose:

Thank you!

It's probably a little bout of depression, which creeps up every once in a while. The last time it got a bit out of control and I stopped producing any art for 5-6 years. I doubt it's like it this time, but the loss of energy and the want to do anything is frustrating. >.<

I do have a "play date" with a miniature club member this weekend. Maybe that'll spark the want to work again, especially as she's planning to teach me how to make miniature cookbooks and cake boxes. :)

You're welcome!

And I know how that can be. I have the same issue crop up every now and again. But I am sure it won't be like that this time at all. :)

And I think the "play date" is exactly what you need :) Learning to make something new always gets me back to work. It sparks the excitement again. Relax and enjoy! :)

Thank you very much. :) These were leftovers that came back with me from my last show. I haven't done anything new for a little bit now.

They are very nice anyway. What did you use as poppy seeds? Black Pepper? Isn't it horrible when you just can't raise the enthusiasm to do anything and yet you are under so much pressure to perform.

Nope, just bits of black clay chopped up finely. I'm wary of using a lot of spices in my mini foods, as I've heard horror stories of them being infested with creepy crawlies.
