New Notebooks, But Hitting a Creative Slump

I made a bunch of new notebooks last month, with my acrylic painted covers. Some I use to collect my art ideas, some are now in my Etsy shop.

This Steampunk one below has a cool fastener that really works and some lacey covering inside the covers. It's not in my shop yet since I don’t know how practical it might be but I love the look of it! What do you think?


Aside from assembling these notebooks, I haven’t been very creative making new pieces. Although I’ve had ideas for projects, weekend usually finds me trying to clean up my studio and cull items I don’t or won’t use anymore. Haven’t painted in a long time, either. Is anyone else having trouble getting motivated creatively in 2012? Tell me how you got out of artist’s block.
