I've lost it

not my keys nor my mind (well , that's debatable)...even creativity!

The part that worries me the most is it isn't like the usual "artistic dry spells" I've been through before. I have been uninspired and unmotivated consistently for over a year and it makes me sad because it used to bring me great joy. It also makes me mad because I have all this STUFF I bought sitting around taking up space and not being put to use! *sigh*

A friend told me it was the time of year and she was going through the same thing. I noticed as I was reading through blogs that other artists have gone through this as well.

I'm tired of wondering why I'm going through this-I just want to get back into it!

I'd love to know how you handled a dry spell, what you use for motivation, and how you stay inspired and positive. Please leave your comments and a link to your blog or website so I can see your work. I promise I'm not a copy cat or stealer of your ideas/designs. I do my own thing-just need to find my way back to it. What better way than surrounding myself with lots of creative juujuu??

As I'm getting my groove back I'll be featuring blogs and sites that helped me on my journey-maybe it will be you! Feel free to follow along to see how this turns out.


  1. That's a tough one. Generally if I put on the music, and clean the craft room, reorganize the supplies and such something will spark an idea. If it's a major slump, I shut the door and clean the rest of the house. That generally will be boring enough to jump start wanting to be creative again :)
    I hope your muse is only taking a short break!

  2. Thanks for your suggestions-I just need to DO something, anything to get my self unstuck. Mired in one spot is worse than moving in the wrong direction!
