I didn't say much on here, but I've been struggling to find a spark of creativity, in what seems like weeks. You know the kind of disappointment, when you spent your usual (long) time on something, only to discover that it's nothing like you envisioned it in your head.
In most of my 'crafty life' I guess I was pretty lucky, never having have to look for inspiration for long. Well, until this year, that is. I guess it's been the magnitude of stuff that life threw on me in the past months, distracted me to the point that other things had to let go.
I was a bit worried that I might be again losing the passion, but luckily I had an unexpected surge of creativity today, and I admit that it made me crazily happy. Whew! Feels good, man!
Anyhoo, the result are these...
PTI (Delightful Dahlia) and WPlus9 (Filigreed Frames) stamps, Copics and white gel pen, October Afternoon paper.
