Finding My Muse

Creative Must
I wish I knew what it is that triggers inspiration and creativity.  Sometimes, the last thing I want to do is look at a bead or a piece of metal.  Other times, I can work all day long and not run out of ideas.  There really is no rhyme or reason to it, so I figure I better enjoy my creative muse when she graces me with her presence.   Yes, this picture represents my muse.  I don't know why because I'm not into fairies or frilly things, but she is what I envision when I picture her in my mind.
Today was one of those insanely creative days.  I finished up two pendants, a necklace, and a pair of earrings.  I worked happily all day in my studio and finished up a couple of projects that were started awhile ago and then set aside for lack of inspiration.  It sure feels good to be productive, especially when I like the pieces I end up with.  If you are a crafter of any sort, you know what I mean.  You can work all day on a piece and then hate it when it’s finished. 
Do you struggle with creativity and inspiration?  How do you handle it?  How do you rekindle the creative flame?
