The thing with creativity is that it breeds itself.

The more you do, the more you create, the faster the ideas come. When I create the ideas pound on my door, leap out of my stash, and nudge me awake. When I hit my stride there are not enough hours in the day to express all of the thoughts in my head. I can't pour them out fast enough.

But when I'm stopped in my tracks... well, the thing with creativity is that it breeds itself.

I've been sitting and waiting for it to return. Days and days of frustrated and idle hands. Those slow wheels are just starting to budge now. The familiar thrill is just a tickle at the moment and I miss the mad torrent frenzied mess making.

Perhaps a little push to start the momentum again. Some scissors, glue and paper. I'm really not one for making cards but it seemed the right thing today. A quiet day, creating cards from pretty papers.

I'm hoping these cards have done the trick and the mad mess making can resume once more.

  1. I don't like when creativity takes a hiatus before I'm ready for one. But the cards are beautiful and I'm glad your creativity is starting to slowly creep back in.

  2. These cards are enchanting! I can't decide which I like best. Great job my dear!


  3. These are really lovely! I can so relate to the lack of inspiration too. Lets hope the longer days bring with them lots of creativity! Cheers.

  4. Luscious paper and beautiful clean cut cards. I know what you mean when the ideas won't come, then suddenly, there they are, as you say, a little thrilling thought and you're away :)

  5. You said you're not one for making cards, but then why do I have tears in my eyes from glancing at your gorgeous creations? You have great talent! Thank you for sharing them with us!
