    Its a boiling 35 degrees here and I haven't been in the mood to do anything other than sleep for the past 2 weeks.

    I think all us crafters get periods when we can't find inspiration when I'm in a non creative mood everything I try to do just gets mucked up so I find the best thing to do is forget about it, chill out and wait for inspiration to return.

      I know how you feel, Ive got two fairs, one in just under 2 weeks and another (2 day large event) 4 weeks after that, I've got items to replace and new ones to get done, but I'm finding it hard to do much of anything at the moment, I have lost all sense of anything!

        I know what you mean - my problem at the moment is that I'm doing stuff but it all looks rubbish!

          I feel exactly the same... stock levels are low, I've got plenty of raw materials to be making more stock but motivation is nowhere in sight.

          I lie awake at night thinking up new designs and ideas but then when I try to actually make them I lose interest so end up playing games or on Facebook!!!

          I've repeatedly gone through all of my crafty supplies to try to find inspiration but it's not working, all that's happening is that everything is so tidy I've no idea where anything is lol.

          I managed to get a few cards made the other day as we had a cardmakign friend visitting and although she only lives across the road she has less motivation than me, we used to spend most evenings cardmaking but now she makes cards maybe once or twice a month... when we sit down together to craft then I get a lot done but once a month isn't much help lol.

          I need to find my motivation cos at the moment all of my get up and go, seems to have got up and gone!!!

          Sorry to whinge

                  Oh no, maybe it's a sign that the fair is not too good??? Perhaps you have ESP?

                  I did have thoughts along these lines when I emailed for a postcode for my satnav, and got the nearest one, plus the directions to turn at Gala Bingo. Maybe I'm being hypersensitive...

                  Just booked in for one on the Sunday too, just in case!

                      I know exactly how you feel, I always leave everything til the last minute and then end up forgetting something or doing things wrong when I don't have anymore time to correct them. My next show is in 2 and a half weeks so I've decided to try and get everything sorted now in advance but its just not happening, everything else seems so much more interesting!

                          Try and think of rewards for yourself after you've completed a task.

                          "I'm allowed a cup of tea after I've made 2 cards"
                          "I'm allowed to go on crafts forum after Ive made 5 cards"
                          "I'm allowed to go to bed after I've made 100 cards"

                              I think when I'm discovering new techniques and materials it makes me mega excited to do stuff and I do loads (proof being the amount of glittery and sequin things I've done right now!) so maybe experiment a bit and buy yourself some new pencils or embelishments and get going! In a weeks time I'll be bored of glitter and do nothing for a while then I'd find something newwww and woosh a million are popped out all at once :}
