I've had an "idea" journal for years. Written descriptions, sketches, downloads of photographs taped in. It covers all aspects of my business. Looking at an idea written down .... "Horseshoe pit by retail area" ... I hope to get this done by fall. I have several glazes, using black clay, extruded trims, leaf shaped spoon rests, ... pages of ideas.
So many ideas ... so little time.
I completely agree, so many thngs I want to create but there just isn't enough time to do it all. I make lists. A list for things I want to make to sell, a list for things I want to make to improve the way I work, lists of things I have made but need to tweak to get correct, etc.
