I've been lacking inspiration. Usually I can pull out crafting books or magazines and become excited at new ideas, but lately nothing seems exciting or inspiring. Perhaps staring at my stacks of craft books, magazines, and patterns is causing me to be more concerned over purging them than browsing through them. I guess that could zap one's inspiration.
I truly have been purging my stashes of "creative" inspiration but still have more sources than I will likely use in my lifetime. I watched a couple episodes of "Hoarders" last night and had to to turn off one show where a well-meaning woman had not only hoarded "things", but cats. That one hit me between the eyes. I don't think I'm hoarding cats, and I take good care of the ones living here, but I have more than I desire. That's precisely why I continue to seek loving homes for some of them. See, I'm NOT a cat hoarder. Tell that to my family.
My stash of craft supplies does seem to be a little out of hand, but maybe it's all in how one looks at it. I view my stuff as treasure to be used in the future. Hmmm....I believe that's exactly what one of the hoarders said about HER things. Well, perhaps inspiration will come as I let go of some things and find homes for more of the cats. I can only hope. Maybe I need to go to my cabin and think about all this - in solitude.
