Crafting Slump or Idea Overload?

Which ever it is it is driving me crazy! I keep thinking I am in a crafting slump... I think I might have crafting block.... but then again, I think my brain is overloaded with ideas and I just can't pick something to start on. A lot of times I find the hardest part of a project is just getting started. Once I am going, I go, but it is just getting it rolling that I have problems with. And that comes down to the fact that I have a zillion ideas rolling around in my head but I can't seem to commit to just one. I have this amazing vintage tablecloth I picked up at an antique mall. I LOVE it! But I want whatever I make with it to be fabulous. So I keep changing my mind on what it should be. I think apron, then I think a little toddler skirt, then maybe a tote bag, or possibly a purse... and that is just the table cloth. I also just started making plant stakes from clothes hangers and old wool sweaters and vintage buttons. The listing of the one I made does not do it justice so I need to retake the pictures. I have donated it to Idol Gives Back so if it does sell, it would be great to be able to pass the money on to a good cause. I really want to make more... but then there are so many other things that are calling me...
I think it comes down to my one major hang up: an inability to focus! But like I said, once I get going that is not a problem. So, tomorrow, seeing as my Bible study is cancelled, it gives me the perfect opportunity to grab something and commit. Hopefully, my update tomorrow will be all about my work in progress.

I have that, too. I can't sleep at night because I keep thinking of all the things I could make next. And then sometimes I have to force myself to put something together and it usually ends up looking like c**p.
