Creative Struggles...I Can't Be The Only One?!




I've been at this stamping 'thing' for many years. Let's put it this way, I've been at it long enough to know that I really don't need to ask the question.









But there are still times when I feel like I am the only one out there putting BLUE and GREEN together and coming up with PURPLE !

When was the last time that happened to you? What do YOU do when you are in need of serious 'SPARK' ?

Leave a comment and let me know. I think it could be an inspiration to us all!

In the meantime, I am still looking for people who want to 'play' in the gift tag swap. Scroll down to the post below for all the details. It's going to be a lot of fun. You never know if one of those tags will be the 'SPARK' to help keep your creative juices flowing!

Lovely blog! :)
Its truly is hard to get inspired and create something unique and fun and different. It's hard to get inspired in many ways. I love to look at people's blogs and that gets me inspired. I look at photography, art, paintings and that gets me truly inspired. I love photography and it inspires me to take more photos. I also love to design things with my computer. Its fun and I enjoy it. SO i guess do things you love and that will truly get the creative juices pumping!lol

Your blog truly inspires me! :)

aahh that old chestnut - the way I get inspired is having an open mind......I love the art work of adverts on TV, in magazines or billboards,designs on T-shirts,walking round shops..any type of shop its amazing what can spark an idea off.
I dont find blog hopping inspiring mainly because I dont want to copy or base ideas from someone else...I want to try and be unique,,well as much as I can but thats just my personal opinion.
Keep up the great work Julie x

Hi Sweetie! I LOVE this card!!! Love the dots and the flower, AND the colors! You know what I find inspires me? Flipping through any magazine. I'm always finding the most beautiful color combo's...even when I'm at the the doctors office. Then I veeerrrry quietly have to rip the page out, a little at a time, and hope nobody's watching! (shhhhh!!!!) Bad me! Hugs, Paulette :o)
