best birthday present.

((If you’re here for the American Crafts blog hop, make sure to click here. There’s an awesome giveaway going on!))

I have been gasping for my creativity.

I forced myself to create something the other day, and I made something that ended up in the garbage. I sat in the crop room and asked myself, “Where the heck did my creative soul go?!” Then, I realized that creativity doesn’t happen when it’s forced.

…so I waited (and waited and waited) until I felt inspired. It took some good downtime for me to get back into my groove.

Finally, my creative soul felt a spark. *smile*

…and now that my creative soul is back in its groove, I have to keep reminding myself that I can’t force creativity. It just happens naturally.

Seriously, being back on track is one of the best birthday presents ever.

Happy 27th birthday, me!

PS: Thank you for all of the birthday wishes. πŸ™‚
