The Cro Jo Monster

Yeah, you know who I mean. If you are a crafter you have definitely met this little meanie. He is guy who saps all the creativity and will do work out of you. He is always lurking about.

I have been attacked by this nasty monster as last while. A combination of too much on and absolutely no down time. So of course this ugly dude then raised his head and left me frustrated.

I even wrote a poem about him…. see below.

Anyway, how do you get yourself out of that crochet funk?

For me, it is about taking on small, mindless projects that require no thought, or little thought and then slowly it returns.

Taking time out for yourself is very important especially in the busy world we live in. Unfortunately all too often we forget to do this and we just end up sucked in and going with the flow. Time out for me means time with my 2 boys, walks with my dogs and being outdoors. Outside in the woods and trees is where I get regenerated. The sound of the rustling leaves, or rushing water soothes me and I leave feeling restored, relaxed and my cro jo returns.

My local woods, no filters needed. Just breathe!

    You are becoming a Poet Laureate. Really cute poems stay with me longer than long drawn out, heart wrenching, gut twisting dirges. It gives me time to think about the message within. I loved it!!💖💖

    Hi Fiona,
    I love your poem. So true, I fight the cro jo monster with just staying away from my hook for a day or two and go outside instead. It’s sometimes just a little fresh air it takes. Makes me feel better as well.

    Great poem, yes we all have that little crojo monster occasionally, as you say, breathe, relax, have a tipple of something or a cuppa & hopefully he’ll go soon, glad you’re ok now 🌈🌈🌈

    This poem reminds me of peoples I know ! Those whom think their poop don’t stink and the world is obligated to them ! We’ve got to stick together to remind each of us how creative and kind we are and that it is out of love we create for others!
    Great poem thanks 😊!
