On Burnout


I’m embarrassed to admit that I haven’t spun since before the art show more than a month ago. I have orders to fill, but it’s not as if I feel restricted or anything. I don’t even want to work on the experiments I’ve got floating around in my head. I’d like to blame it in my job (which doesn’t involve alpacas or yarn in any way). And a by-product of loving your job does seem to be that it creeps into the rest of your day. I spent most of yesterday evening catching up on emails and it’s not uncommon for me to start answering them before I even get out of bed. But really, I’m just burned out. Anyone have any ideas on defeating burnout?

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

  2. craft with friends! =) It forces you to 1. be social, 2. enjoy a tasty beverage of the vino variety preferably, 3. set a defined time that you will begin crafting/spinning for you, knitting for me again. Often times my knitting gets tossed aside for various reasons and having a crafting night forces me to pick it up again and deal with whatever issue I was having.
