Do you ever run out of ideas and just get burnt out? What do you do? I have somewhat run out of ideas for drawing designs...I like seeing other CCers ideas...but I have run out of my own!

Yeah, what she ^^^^ said! Do what I did today.......take time to just stroll thru stores like Hobby Lobby and other places that have a lot of home decor &/or crafts. Surf the internet for all kinds of crafts, posters, etc that you can transfer into CAKE icon_smile.gif

I don't know what I would do without CC--it's like having a team of experts at my fingertips. Between the gallerys, forums recipes etc--I think I'm set for the next twenty years or so icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the advice...and part of the reason I joined CC. You know how sometimes you just want to do something you've never seen before? I guess I like to be a pioneer of sorts, but whatever the case...maybe I'll just mix some of the ideas together. Thanks.

That's what I tell my brides .... picking your wedding cake design is just a big cut-n-paste process! thumbs_up.gif

I don't think I would be half as successful without all the great ideas on here! Thanks to everyone for sharing their great ideas!

Basically what all the otgers said. I just browse CC for ideas and use those ideas for inspiration. I don't know what I would do without CC.

I get most (ok a whole lot) ideas/insipration from CC. I can't start the process without looking on CC. Once I have it I have to rein myself in and remember I have a limited amount of time and I really haven't tried that yet.

I love CC for inspiration. I also find myself quoting CCers all the time

I need help with posting my pics, for whatever reason I just can't seem to find the time to do it. It's not like I don't know how I just always seem to find something else to do.

I should start a thread about "how to make yourself upload your pictures in a timely fashion"
