Hello from the other end of the UK! Good to hear your health is good enough for you to start thinking about some crafting again.

I agree absolutely with the "just play" sentiments expressed so far. If you don't like what you made, you don't have to show it to anybody and it's only paper - imagine being a silversmith plagued by the same kind of doubts! Try not to see it as a "waste" of time if you end up binning whatever you made, it's simply time spent on your hobby (if you took a country walk or played a round of golf you wouldn't have something in your hand at the end of it).

It sounds as if you may be suffering too much choice. Try focusing on a single thing (a stamp or die cut shape, for example) to start with. Make something simple using that one thing as your starting point, adding just one or two other bits from your stash if inspiration strikes. You could even go back to the archive of "Limited supplies" challenges here at SCS and try one or two of those (they ran on Fridays before the "Free for All" challenges started).
