Where's the flame

Please excuse my absence: my mojo is lost, writers block, hand cramps, ceative burnout.  Whatever you want to call it.  It's a little disturbing.  To wake up and have no desire to be creative.  It's a little sad.  To be so busy that you don't have time to visit blog friends.  It's a little depressing.  To realize you don't have much to share anyway.

For now I have found a great article on how to survive creative burnout.  Don't worry:)  I know all the signs of depression.  This isn't it.  Life just gets in the way sometimes.
I miss you all and wish you the best in your decorating and creating, your days and nights, your family and friends.

Hi Steph - You don't need to apologize...we ALL go through times when we are burnt out,spent and overtired from the busy-ness of life. Feeling a bit of that myself lately.
Hang in there and don't beat yourself up about it.
Blessings

Wow, for a minute there I thought you were writing a post for me to put on my blog. I think most of us go through these spells of boredom. We will get over it soon though, right?
Seriously...it's good to just step back and observe once in a while.

Good of you even to pop in and let us all know you're still OK - I was getting worried but just hang in there - I've been there also and you do come around.
God bless

{{{Hugs}}} to you Stephani. This is probably your mind's way of telling you it needs a creative break. You will be back better than new in no time!

Thanks, Steph. I'm sure I'll find the article helpful. I think I know how you feel. My creativity stopped with all of the pain I've been in. I'm in the craft room again since the RF treatment on my left leg nerves. Whoo Hoo! I feel new again. It can depress you when you lose your desire to work. It passes, Carol is right;it helps to read and stay close to loved ones.
Hugs,
Susan
