More Monkeys

I made more monkeys...I couldn't help myself!

Here we have:

Chester -


Dotty -


and Gordon -


And here's one of them all (which is a bit dark - the sun wasn't out!) -


They're about the only crafty thing I've done of late. I seem to be in a bit of a slump really. I think being frustrated and a tad depressed about not being in work is starting to affect my motivation to do anything, so mostly, I don't feel creative.

Going to attempt to do some more cross-stitch today I think; it might help to get me out of my slump, but I'm not holding my breath really.

Anyone have any suggestions for how to get some creativity back?

Oh, and the monkies are for sale in both my Etsy and Folksy shops, links to which can be found to the left!

Gorgeous little monkeys...Try tackling the 'looking for work depression' by setting aside some job hunting time each day and then give yourself permission to do someting else with the rest of it. Something which helps take away some of that frustration and hopeless negativity that builds up. Go for a walk, go for a run do something that's positively good for you. You could go the library and seek out crafting books and see if anything sparks your creativity off again. Fingers crossed that work turns up soon.

I especially like the first one! I know what it feels like to 'lose your mojo'! Hope it reappears soon.

I'll join your club! I am out of work too and damn it is depressing! Sometimes I just don't know where to turn. Keep up the monkeys though, they look great and should be a bit of a stress reliever!
