kategirl, I've had featured projects but I still feel that everyone else are soo creative and imaginative!! I feel like everything I do is really simple and quick and some people here spend days and months on an item of clothing, some fabulous embroidery or a crazy quilt!! It makes me feel like they're the 'proper' craftsters and I'm just skimming the surface...
Anyway, I enjoy crafting nevertheless and for inspiration I have Craftster!
Seeing other people's good work also makes me raise my own standards and I've noticed I've become better at things since craftster time begun.
I also subscribe to Elle Decoration (UK version) and it's full of amazing design always. I love getting it and sitting down with a cup of tea and just be inspired!!
Sometimes, when I'm feeling uncreative, I grab my camera, get on my bike (I am in Amsterdam after all...
) and cycle round the city observing people and places and shop windows and market stalls. If I see some nice detailing on a skirt, a handbag shape I like or a colour combination that works really well I take a picture!
It's a very personal and draining thing being creative and I think we all have periods where we feel a bit down about our creativeness. We are surrounded by very talented people here on Craftster so it can make it even worse but just think, there are people out there that wouldn't have a clue how to make a jordy bag!! Even WITH the tutorial!!
