Wow! I'm excited about all the ways you gave to find inspiration and revive that spark. Thank you so much.
I've decided to take a journey back to creativity and ask you to come along with me. I'm going to need all the encouragement I can get. I have so many distractions right now, but being creative is a fulfillment that allows me to focus on the rest of my world with joy.
First Steps Are the Hardest
I believe one thing that was mentioned in your comments was a good cleaning of the studio. As you can see I've not been putting back things in their place. If I take a few minutes to unload from my classes I'm likely not to make as big a mess. Also I'm trying to find space for the cartridges and other items for the new Imagine. When my house is not clean I'm restless. It's the same for my studio.
By cleaning and going through my supplies I'll be working through another suggestion by several of you to be inspired by my papers, remembering what I was going to create with them when I purchased them. I love my pattern papers and often I've created from the paper instead of the photo and I love it.
I know it's going to be tough because I have an event with my son this morning and I teach tonight and tomorrow morning. Soooo, I would love if you would leave a comment with ideas for storage, organization, or a link to a photo of your creative place.

Most of my ways have been mentioned, but the ones that work best for me are just to look through pictures and my albums. It brings back that fun warm, fuzzy feeling you get while making new pages and re-living the memories. Also, going through embellishments. A lot of times I buy embellishments with certain ideas in mind and don't get to it right away. So, by going through them, it helps me to remember some of those ideas I have put on hold.
Congratulations Marianne! Send your snail mail to me via email@example.com.
Thanks for all the ideas. It's motivated me to take this journey and not give up.
