fresh creative ideas on a stormy day.


it seems like every day i have a new goal in mind or a new dream to chase.  i'll give you an example of what today's ideas were.

the day has been full of thunderstorms, flooding, and chilly temps.  not the best day to have a positive attitude because this weather brings me down a bit, but as i was sitting here i was a little bored.  the cleaning got monotonous and facebook was pretty boring, as usual.

i was really, really itching for a craft to do but i had nothing on hand except a blank canvas.  i didn't feel like getting in the car to drive and i was bummed.  no craft today then.

but that doesn't mean i can't do one tomorrow or over the weekend, or even on one of my days off next week.  i love to be creative and i want my house to be styled in lots of my own personal work.  ha! well, i don't really have too many yet, but there are endless possibilities with paint and a canvas, or all of the beads i have collected for jewelry making.

each week, i want to create at least one handmade piece, whether it's a painted canvas, a new necklace or bracelet, a pair of earrings, a bouquet of flowers, or some sort of painted bottle, flower pot, or piece of wood.

i don't let my creative side show enough and i know one day i'm going to regret that.  act now while there's still time and i'm actually able to.

i am really excited to get started because i have a few ideas in mind already that i'll share when i'm done.  i love brainstorming new projects and things to do.

what has inspired you lately that has turned into new goals and dreams?

I STILL want to teach myself how to sew better, and I wish I could find a "craft" that I loved to do all the time. I switch from crocheting, to making simple jewelry, to finding refurb projects to do, which is what I really like because there is always something new to learn/do. I have an old dresser to restain, a lamp to paint, a bathroom to paint and curtains to sew. Whew!!! That's my list...and my crafty goals. :)

Can't wait to see what you do!!

I am a totally craft ADD-er.... I find something I want to do everyday and I do about 1/3 of them. Can't wait to see your next work of art! :)

I love being creative, but I oftentimes don't make time for it. I should too!
