I have determined another reason for the lack of creativity in my life was the lack of inspiration and not storing up such inspiring things. I have started a folder on my computer named inspire where I am stashing away images, words and ideas. I am also using Tumblr now which has been a great resource of inspiration. Something else new to my world is pinterest.com. While I don't have an account I see others lists, ideas and whatever and snatching inspiration wherever I find it. Now I can feel the creativity sparks coming to life and I am hopeful and excited as to what this may create.
