Unhappy Muse is missing!

Have three cards to make by tomorrow evening. Near as I can figure she must be a teeny bit overhung, even though I personally only had one glass of wine on New Year's Eve. Have ideas for them, just don't have the kick in the pants I'm needing to get to work on them! Hoping that forcing myself to get to work on the easiest one will help me to get started. Also hoping that DH can encourage me. One of my resolutions is to not wait until the last minute to create stuff, so we'll see how that goes.

My muse must be on a very "extended" vacation as she has been gone a long time. Thank goodness for my generic stockpile of cards made in advance. I just have to add the insides and - or a tag/plaque with a specific greeting to the front such as "thinking of you", etc...

Hope your muse returns soon!

Me too, thank goodness when I have a spurt of creativity I'll whip some cards and have them ready to go.

I kicked all my Muses to the curb a few years back. They ceased to amuse me!

These days I use '5 hour energy'...

My Muse has been on pain pills since my rear end auto accident last month. To keep going, I look at the card samples on Pinterest and it seems to wake up my Muse and excites her into action. It sparks interest in what I have in my rubber room, some which has never been used. I think I'm just too old to be bounced around. I just don't bounce like I used to bounce. It will be better.

Sorry, inkkyjo. Sickness and death are hard to deal with.

Pleased to report that my muse is making periodic appearances. Have made two bday cards and a sympathy card. Another bday and a friendship card by Wed. and swap stuff in the next week. Feels wonderful to be creating again!

My muse comes back when I just start doing some art. If I just sit and think or look at others stuff, I freeze up my muse. I think it is because when I start playing with ink and color that I can forget everything else. Of course I am not saying everything I make at those times are any good! But just get started
