Methinks I am a snob......

Tonight I surfed by several old bookmarked sites.... being nosey, wanting to know what was going on.
Nice work -- same work -- it all looks the same.
The artist is good.
But all of the items look the same -- just different color paletes.
The artist uses the same technique in each piece -- nothing changes.
Same design, over and over and over again.

Maybe that is why I struggle.....
I don't know.
but it is food for my thoughts tonight.

Ugh, I feel that about my beading all the time... same stuff just different colors. Really hard to break some patterns. It's one of the reasons I'm really struggling with my last BJP page, same old - same old. I don't have any ideas or direction. I hate that feeling!

Struggle through it, keep sewing beads to fabric or weaving them to other beads - something's bound to inspire!

It's not that I am not inspired... it is that I see some work -- and it is the same thing, over and over.
Yes, I agree, I am finishing up the last BJP -- and yes I AM tired of that format.... must come up with a new one for next year.
I guess I am saying, or trying to say, that I don't undertand those that can do the same thing over and over and over.

Have a look at my gallery: http://www.flickr.com/photos/geometric_jewels/
for some change in formats. Enjoy!

I love the patterns -- but couldn't link back to a blog?
the pictures were wonderful!
