QuestionCreating a Portfolio Pin

Hi
I have been trying to get a software development job for over 15 years and wondered if anyone cound suggest any ideas for a portfolio website, ie where I could find a 'case study' that I could use.

I've got 2 MCP's (70-315 and 70-316) and I am currently studying 70-536, my understanding being that the more MCP's you have, the more doors will open when appying for I.T jobs!?!

I do get the occasional I.T agency ring me and say 'we have an ASP.NET C sharp position' but as soon as they discover I have not got at least 2 years commercial experience, they are not interested.

I love the academic side and studying/taking the Microsoft exams, but have no idea where to start in building a portfolio of work!.   I have dozens of small apps written in .NET 1.1 for Windows and Web, but they are of the usual small DataGrid, etc ADO.NET and SQL server type, ie totally boring and I'm a bit sick of the site of the code now!

I just need to find out how to get the inspiration and originality to create apps from scratch, - interesting innovative apps that use .NET 3.5, AJAX, Silverlight, etc rather than following exercises in books!

I have the theory and knowledge, but not the ideas.   Its just like years ago when I studied music theory and got a distinction and understood synths and electronic music like the back of my hand, yet I couldn't write a good song to save my life Frown | :(

Any help appreciated. I am happy to post my C.V for anyone's criticism aswell.
