For years, I have been making my own greeting cards. I have invested scads of $$ in supplies, and etc. to do so. As I sat at my craft table (my studio in 3'x6' form) recently, I wondered if I was wasting my time. Who really cares? I know that I collect the cards I receive for a year, then go back through them for one last look, then either toss them, save the fronts, or donate them to some charity that can use them. Very seldom do I get a hand-made card. So, I ask myself, would people to whom I send cards be just as happy with a store-bought card which I could pick out at the dollar store, or Hallmark, if it had to really "special." I could save myself a lot of time and money by doing so, and it probably would be appreciated just as much. Thus the quandary that I am in right now. Also, the creative juices have seemingly dried up, at least temporarily. Same with the crochet hook, and the gardening. I have just run out of good ideas and thoughts. How does one get those creative juices flowing again?
