First Tangle in progress

It's rough and ready and I'm not taking too much care over the lines, and tbh, I'm not even sure I like it! But it's a start and feels quite freeing.

Right, a new challenge

Doodling is fun right and you don't need to get too hung up on perfection?

Sooooo, I have bought a book on Zentangles, something I've always fancied a go at, and some shiny new Moleskine books to try this out.

Let's hope it opens a creative door for me!

Inspiration? Help? Frustration?

I am having terrible trouble finding any creative feelings within me at all. I guess a lot of this stems from the fact that I am tired all the time, and generally feel shattered, due to having a little boy who still doesn't sleep very well.
I was hoping that having a child would add something new to my creative life; some new inspiration or subject matter. But what I've actually got is a blank brain that cannot seem to do or make anything.
It's depressing. It's a major struggle. I just don't know how to get out of this funk.
I sit down with paper and pencil and nothing happens. I'm not even crocheting or knitting or doing anything that doesn't even require me to follow someone else's pattern. There is simply nothing there to come out.

How do I get past this? I don't know. I have all the best will in the world to do something every day. I buy new sketch books and materials to try and jog something in my mind but nothing happens.
Will I ever be properly creative again???

Beep beep

A desperate attempt to get back into drawing: my son's toy bus.
I spent far too long on this and it's not even finished.
