Just make a little something ~

I've realized that when my creative mojo is missing....all I need to do is make just a little something and I feel it coming back ~ also listening to my favorite music in the studio is another thing that I love. I'll pull out supplies and begin going through them, remembering where I found each one (sometimes) and as soon as I start layering a few things together, things that belong with each other, the creativity in me begins churning!!

Our lives are so busy with families, work, cleaning and cooking but if I can just carve out a small amount of time to make something, I then remember how good it always makes me feel ~

A sweet little paperweight that I put together ~ for sale in The Feathered Nest Shoppe ~

I found these shells the other day, they're perfect for beautiful pincushions!

I've been trying to pull out a few projects that I'd started and finish them up ~ this French journal is just begging to be finished!

And for your baby viewing pleasure, sweet photos of our precious Clara ~
who will be FIVE months old Sunday!!

Don't you just want to squeeze her?!

I hope you have a great Thursday sweet friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

That little cutie Clara has the most expressive face I have seen on a baby. Seeing her stand up like that makes me think she may be an early walker. Watch out Nanna, you may have to hide your supplies!

And Dawn dear, can`t wait to see the shell pincusions finished.

Yes, I do want to squeeze her! Love her headband; when my daughter was a baby I put headbands on her too, but she always pulled them off. Nice paperweight and I love that journal. Looking forward to shopping in your shop for some holiday gifts!

I just love that last photo of Clara, she looks like she is giving something some serious thought, so cute! We just found out last night that our little girl will be making an early arrival. She is scheduled to arrive on Sept. 1st! I am getting beyond excited to finally see her.

I am glad to see that I am not the only one to have a few unfinished projects laying around. Your journal is so elegant. Have fun creating!

She is adorable! What a wonderful age, so kissable. Your shells will make wonderful pin cushions can't wait to see them done. What do you use to stuff them with?

First, I love stopping by and view what you have created or shared with us. You put a smile on my face this morning. Yes, I would love to squeeze little Clara. Aren't they fun and the sweetest? Your paper weight is so neat! And the Paris journal is beautiful. I'm waiting for just the right item to purchase in your shoppe. I'll know it when I see it. Maybe the journal? Best to you sweet Dawn!
