Do you ever . . . . ?

Do you ever just feel like stopping painting? or whatever you love to do? Are you ever just burned out for a minute, or a couple of days? You just feel like there is nothing left to create inside your head. Nothing left to spill out on the paper? I have felt like this on and off. Then it happens. An idea, or an inspiration comes from seeing other people out there in cyber land. I see something in nature. I hear something in my head or see something outside myself and I slip right back into the ease of painting. I have to go paint. I keep doing it. I can't stop. It is like a habit - biting your fingernails, holding your blanky (as a baby) - you just can't stop. And there I am again, painting, drawing, imagining what the next work of art will be. It is an amazing journey. It holds twists and turns in the road, but the views are awesome and the path is never boring!

So cute! And YES I go to that 'place' many times. I was just wondering HOW MUCH MONEY I'd have if my hobby was reading instead of painting/crafting! The library is free!
Oh well :) It's fun when the creative juices flow, isn't it?
Bravo to you, the cards are adorable!
