Inspiration Lacking

Now that I have had my ETSY shop open for a week, I am finding it difficult to think of items to make.  I started with monthly milestone cards and baby milestone cards, because I had some friends that were looking for something like that.  Beyond repeating those with different designs, I am at a loss on what to make.

My inspiration usually comes only when prompted.  Be it a writing prompt, a request from someone for a custom design, or the need for something to fulfill a need in my home; I am not a muse of great ideas.  One friend suggested that I make chalkboard signs for weddings, but looking on ETSY, there are a million (only slight exaggeration) of those already.  I will go ahead and start making them, until I can think of something better.  In the meantime, I will wait for more inspiration to come my way.

I guess I am not naturally a creative thinker.  I follow instructions, follow the rules, and just put my own flair on things.  Kind of depressing, actually.  Maybe it is just the rain outside.
