False Start!

I had an idea. I tried that idea. That idea was a total stinkbug. It's back to the drawing board. I'll decide on an idea within the next few days.  Right now, I'm leaning towards embellished dolls in either 2d or 3d.

I know what you mean about ideas poofing right before your eyes. Mine is on it's way, but not at all what I had planned. I think my lesson is not to plan, just do it. ;)

That has happened to me, too. I keep telling myself it's a learning experience, and that helps.

I love your word "stinkbug" to describe an idea that doesn't work and hope your next idea will make you happier. As Marty suggests (but in different words), let this be a place to experiment/play and let go of needing it to be "right/perfect."

I have several boxes of "stinkbugs." But the thing is, each one represents an attempt to create something, and I think that's what matters most. Eventually you will get an idea that works for you!
