Have you ever been laying in bed…sleep…that good kind of sleep that has your mouth open and your saliva begans to trail down the side of your face…suddenly you are sitting up, awake, phone in hand typing away…a text to yourself…pen in hand, paper on the pillow sketching…”Creativity ain’t got a time schedule” I was once told.
Often I wake in the middle of the night texting myself or my bff ideas so I can can come back to them when I am fully awake. I’m constantly getting yelled at because when I have an idea, I can’t let it just sit there; I have to do something about it. As an artist, there is no limit or certain time that your creative juices start flowing. Yes I said “artist”. Fashion design is art. To me, it’s like painting the human body with fabric. When my sewing machine is running, it’s music to me ears. It’s better than any trap music, r&b song, pop rock tune, or rock band that I’ve ever heard.
Sometimes I may record myself talking if my idea is very detailed so that I won’t lose that idea. I personally hate having that one good idea and I don’t take notes then can’t remember what the idea was so I carry a pen and pad around. My boyfriend worries me all the time that I’m not getting enough sleep. My motto is “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it”. Perfect your craft. Nothing in life is perfect but if you know that you tried your best, then it is the perfect imperfection!!! I use to doubt myself but after careful observation, I know i have what it takes. I am proud of myself for being bold enough to concur my dreams. It takes alot to step out on faith and let the wind guide you, the possibilities are end less.
Let the creative juices flow, take notes and perfect your craft…
