How's Your Creativity???

It's been awhile since I've been in a real creative mood.  So today I I found myself wanting to create something.  

Image pillows are always a favorite so I made a few this morning.
This one is a lovely image of a hand written letter.  
 This one just simply says, "Imagine."

I made a few tote bags too.  I made a few last year and they sold quickly.  I hope these do the same.   Carol of of the Polka Dot Closet loves making these too.  So, if you'd like to see hers just drop by her blog.  You will love her style.
 Both of the images used on the totes are from the Graphics Fairy.
Isn't it funny how our creativity ebbs and flows.  How's yours these days???

You always make such pretty things, Sissie. Love the bags, too!

Beautiful pillows, Sissie! I am really loving that postcard pillow. I have a couple of pillows to make for my booth, too. My creativity was MIA for a couple of months earlier this year, but it seems to have returned. : )

Sharon said...

Lovely Sissie ! Yes my creativity is like a roller coaster too .If I'm in the mood I can make some really neat stuff , if I'm not in the mood and force myself it doesn't turn out so well . But looking at blogs like yours always gets me in the mood to create .

Debra Oliver said...

These are so pretty, Sissie. You're the pillow queen! My creativity has been almost zero since my hubby has been sick. But I'm hoping that it will come back with him feeling better and warm weather...I hope so!

Your totes are so dreamy! And I love the postcard pillow to pieces. My creativity definitely depends on the weather these days. If it's still cold and dreary, I got nothing. When it's gorgeous like today, the ideas just pour out.


Susan said...

I have had a hard time getting my mojo on lately!
Love your pillows and tote bags. Very beautiful!

Donna said...

Yep, guess it comes in spurts sometimes! Your pillow is so pretty, and I love your bags! I've used that graphic (the one on your last tote) many times, it's one of my favorites!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Sissie, Your pillows and bags are adorable! I've been in a creative slump lately too.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You always inspire me! I love that postcard pillow! My creativity is slowing warming up!

Blondie's Journal said...

Everything is so pretty, your creativeness has no limits! I really love the first pillow with the script...gorgeous!

I'm not creative with crafts or sewing, i think everyone knows that! But I have been puttering and making some new vignettes around the house. That's the extent of it these days!!


The Polka Dot Closet said...

Sissie, your too sweet! If they look at mine they will be running back to your blog, because yours are much more creative! I love the imagine pillow! I have been jazzing to do some pillows, but you know how it goes with a booth, when you want to do pillows, you are in need of small tables and vice a versa! Thanks for all of your great ideas!

I love your projects--I have had the creative bug---but this time of the year my gardens take up all my time!

Bente said...

Love the bags you made. So beautiful. The pillows are also very pretty.

Have a great day, Sissie

Sue @ Miss Phoebes Perch said...

I'm glad you're in a creative mood. These are really beautiful. Thanks for sharing! Sue

Oh...I love your pillow and your bags...It gets my creativity flowing. :) I'm your newest follower.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Kathy Moreland said...

I think I'm 'ebbing'. Not feeling very creative right now. You have inspired me though. Love the totes and pillows. Did you use iron on transfer paper? Have fun, and keep on creating!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Cute, cute pillows Sissie! I have been crocheting away....that's been my creative mood. It puts me in to a meditative state when I do that. It also let me think of things that I want to do around the house and the fact that I am having out of town company soon. ~Hugs, Patti

Cindy said...

Adorable tote bags Sissie, and the "imagine" font is beautiful! My creativity was loooowwww for about 2 months. I didn't paint a thing, and just started back this last weekend. It is funny how the whole creative thing comes and goes though... sometimes it's just NOT there and there's not a thing to do about it except wait!


Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

Love the tote!! I still have one of your pretty pillows. It reminds me of how sweet you are! Keep creating...you are a natural!

Denise said...

My creativity has been going strong! And it looks like yours has come back big time. Everything is beautiful. Love it all!

Hello Sissie, I found your blog by pinning your vintage vanity mirror from your Aug. 17, 2010 post. It was just what I wanted to go along with a post about a 1920's story that I have scheduled to run this afternoon. In the photo credits I state that it belongs to you and give a link to your blog. I hope that will be okay with you?

I love your style and wish you the best in moving to a new house. I have followed you and added you to my blogroll. Thank you and I look forward to reading your new posts as they pop up!
Best wishes,

My creativity is not going as fast as I need it to. LOL I'm so far behind in my "list" that I don't know where to start. But, I will - tomorrow. (Yes Scarlet, we know).


Celestina Marie said...

Great treasures below for your booth. Oh I wish I could come over and shop.
Thank you for stopping by.
Wishing you a great weekend.
Hugs, CM
