I have pretty much dropped most of my activities in every day life. I haven’t updated the blog in months and ignored my shops (though luckily I did sell a few prints and cards). I have made exactly one new artwork in 2013:
I wanted to make a new custom card for my boyfriend. And it took me far too much time and energy to finish it at all in time before Valentine’s.
Basically what happened is that I had a bit of a nervous breakdown in December and am dealing with a burnout since. I’m tired every day, all day. I’m constantly stressed even without immediate deadlines.
And did I mention tired? I am so, so very tired.
I’m trying though. Very slowly I’ve been gathering creative juices and looking for inspiration everywhere. But I don’t have the energy yet. I haven’t even uploaded the new love card design yet because I don’t have the energy. And I know it is probably only 5 minutes of work. But it would take me all day.
I’m just not there yet. But I will be eventually.
