where has all my creativity gone?

I'm feeling a little dejavu at the moment. I can't even count the number of times I've had to tackle my little creative space here, but in order for me to squeeze out more of my creative juices, I just had to get this MESS taken care of! I must say, I'm a bit embarrassed that I can't just keep this space clean and tidy all the time, but it just happens so fast!

I feel that I have been at a lull this last month with my creativity! But then, after thinking about it a bit more, I realized that I'm still being creative, it's just all being put towards one form of creativity and that is creating Stampin' Up! greeting cards. I started this new adventure with Stampin' Up! as an independent demonstrator at the beginning of April 2009 and since then I have been enjoying the beginning phases of building this little business (and new hobby) of mine! If you're a card maker and want a place to go for some ideas, check out my new Stampin' Up! blog at stuckonstampin.blogspot.com. Not only will I be sharing my crafty creations on a regular basis, but I also have a blog list on my sidebar of other great places of inspiration for you to go and check out. All of that card making energy has turned into this...

close to 75 cards in the last 2 months!!

What about you? Do you feel like you go in and out of being creative or is there something specific that you put energy towards at various times? Some months I'm gung-ho on redecorating. Other months I'm all about organizing. I can switch easily between wanting to "reinvent" something I find at Goodwill or I can be crazy for scrapbooking. There are so many things I love to do...I just don't do them all at once!

So...I want to know. What is tickling your fancy these days? Hey, it can even be things like shopping, being out in the sun, reading, whatever! I just thought it would be fun to learn what kinds of things you are particularly giddy about at this time in your life. Do share!

A new site! I am going to check it out.

My poor body can't keep up with my brain. Creativity is my passion. :)

I'm in a funk too! I'm off to look at your new blog.

Oh, my latest passion has been enjoying summer, sleeping late and sipping iced tea in the sun!

Ugh...I just wish I were creative. It's life as usual around here-chasing kids and cleaning house!

All our places get like that from time to time. It feel good when it's organized. Dang girl, look at all those cards! You should sell them!

I was JUST thinking yesterday that I have been in a slump and thinking about what to do next. Right now I'm into where to start with Stampin Up. Do you have suggestions for a newbie like me on where to start...what to buy first. I would appreciate your opinion. I'm also into organizing right now. I feel so much better when something has a place. Another question...where did you get those color magazine holders, I love them.

I am big time craft hopper! I get excited about one thing and work on it for a while and then get burned out and more on to something new! I will eventually go back to the first thing I was working on....but it make take a while! I have ton of unfinished or never started craft projects that I will get to one day!

Hello!
I bounce between scarpbooking and creating cards! but I think I have been making more cards than scrapbooking. But I do have to say I love love love stampin up! I should own stock in it for as much as I buy :-) I know the UPS guy really well! but these days I would have to say getting ready for my daughters wedding is what I am tickled about :-) thanks for all of your ideas (love the water bottle tag)!

I've been in a home dec staeg for awhile now, finally getting to all of the little things I meant to do 6 years ago when we moved in! The funny thing is that we're meeting with builders, getting ready to build our new dream home! I'll get everything done in time to move.

Love your craft space, by the way!
