Do you ever get struck with inspiration in the middle of the night? I had the pleasure of staying up late last night after being hit with the inspiration stick. Isn't it fun to get lost in your imagination when there are creative possibilities overflowing?! And the next morning when you can't put two sentences together due to burning the candle at both ends, do your dreamy projects still seem dreamy? I had to hang it up early today just to recover! ...and I didn't get one project completed either! Have you ever had an inspiration hangover?


  1. I'm hungover 7 days a week...I guess I'm a create-aholic.

  2. I've had dreams about bloging and cooking lately. Sure beats flying monkeys! I know what you mean. Try being a relucatant government employee working on spreadsheets when youare constantly daydreaming of being creative! HELP!

  3. I have to say I love it when YOU have an inspiration hangover, because that means EYE~CANDY abounds!!!!!

  4. Hilarious! (I'm laughing WITH you)

    Every morning my husband does a b-line just because I'm waking up saying "oh man...I had THE BEST idea last night" and before I can finish "oh man..." he's off to the coffee maker :)
    I can't keep the five kids names straight half the time-
    hee hee

  5. LOL! I've gotten up at 3AM when inspiration suddenly woke me UP and I had to go and write, LOL!

  6. Recently that's all I've been doing. Since I've created my new blog, my mind is buzzing with thoughts and ideas.
    Some nights just as I am about to get to sleep I think of something, then some time later, look at the clock and realize that it is 2am and I am still awake... When it is time to get up, I get that inspiration hangover feeling you talk about...

  7. beautiful pictures!

  8. Someone recently posted that they keep a creative journal beside there bed so they could jot down all the wonderful ideas they come up with in the middle of the night. I think that's a great idea!

  9. oh ya, baby! The best ideas come in the middle of the night-there are no limits then!

  10. Aha! That's why I have been fighting the grumps - no middle of the night inspirations :-(
    Gotta work on it :-)

  11. I do that! Your pics are very eye catching though!

  12. Hi, again, Polly,
    That happens to me all the time...the body is tired, but the mind (filled with so many ideas) just won't shut down.
    By the way, could you add me to your Keep&Share list?
    Thanks, Susan

  13. oh, i wish i had an inspiration stick...i could use a few whacks from one...hee hee...

    Polly, my lovely package arrived yesterday...and it was just gorgeous!!! thank you SO much, i just love everything!!!

  14. Do I ever! When I get inspiration late at night...I just take a minute to jot it down so I won't forget. Can't tell you how many times I didn't write it down, only to beat myself up the next day trying to remember.

  15. I've been having alot of inspiration hangover's here in blogland. There are so many inspiring women here. Love your blog.

  16. Polly,
    Thanks for coming by and anwwering questions for me.

    Off to see your Friday Flea Market items.

    PS Love the banners you've done.
    And yes, I do have creative 'nights' like that. =0))

  17. Oh I choose carefully what I think of as I'm drifting off to sleep...if I'm in creative mode, I do that all night waking up several times with my mind racing with ideas! I so understand.
    Your blog is wonderful! I'm so glad I found you :)

  19. Since the birth of Dear Bebe, I really haven't had the time or energy to be inspired! I miss that! Maybe this spring I can clear the cobwebs in my brain...
