Have you ever been in a slump?

Ok so have you ever been in a slump and tried so many things(craft wise) and find out you are not really good at any? RRRRRRR!!! Double RRRRRRRRR!

I have a creative mind but when I try to connect it to my hands something happens. Or should I say nothing happens. Maybe I should be in designing instead of crafting. Nah...... I probably couldn't handle that either.

I have been making ATC's, and I think I really like that, and it does not take that much brain power but I can not for the life of me find any words for them. Ya know, the fancy text used in scrapbooking and on collages? Then I tried to find some flowery shabby chic papers, just 12X12 papers, nothing more, and that was a bizarr-o search that led me, uh, back to nowhere.

So as I am venting if anyone comes across some great scrapbooking text pages I can copy(that are not on black background) or tell me where to find some I would be so delighted. And about the papers, I want pretty flowery kind that reminds me of old wallpaper or old upholstery fabric.

If you could help me please so I can get out of this little, well big slump I am in. What do you do when you are in a crafting slump?

I have to admit I'm not sure what you're looking for, and you've probably already tried scrapbookscrapbook.com, but that's the best I can come up with. This link might give you some papers you'd like: http://www.scrapbookscrapbook.com/spring-backgrounds.html
And this is a link for some papers I love (I'm a paisley fan):
http://www.scrapbookscrapbook.com/paisley-meadows.html

They have lettering too, but as ignorant as I am I don't know if they'll work. Hope this helps. (And yes, I've been in a slump many times.)
