The Little Things – Creating

Appreciating Creating by Helena La Petite

As creatives we were made to create – although it might seem so obvious I just wanted to put that out there again.

Sometimes we might feel demotivated and uninspired, and that leads to us not creating work and art ourselves. It’s important though to remember that we are supposed to create, no matter what happens. And when we actually start to create the ‘good feelings’ will come back. It’s like fighting that black hole.

So even if you’re feeling a bit down, remember to create. Don’t let go of what drives you, and what you love.

You don’t have to create a piece of art that will change the world – just create. No matter what that is for you – writing, painting, drawing, designing, taking pictures, crafting, baking, etc.

Whenever I’m not taking photos I personally love to paint and bake. What is it that you’re passionate about when it comes to creating?

    First of all, I love your artwork!!

    You are so right, sometimes when I feel my work is not good enough compared to others, I just feel like never creating anything again. It took me a while to realize, that I’m not creating to win prizes or make a living of it, but just to feel the joy of creating.

    I really enjoy knitting, sewing and writing, also I’m really getting into creating my own recipes lately, does that count?

      Aw, thank you Hanna! :) Creating your own recipes sounds awesome by the way – in my opinion that does count for sure! :)

    That is such awesome artwork. I actually just picked up drawing again. I’m glad I did, I actually kind of missed it! I do have to give up on the idea that it have to look supergood though, or else it gets me frustrated. Which is pretty much what you said up here. Haha. Thanks for that! x
