Creativity is so good for the soul ~

I had a total sourpuss attitude today.
I can't explain exactly why, but I did.
I hate that. But I know myself well enough by now that when I'm like this
I need to shut up.
I need to simply keep to myself and try my best not to be ugly to my family.

Finally I managed to get into the studio to make a little something.
Nothing huge, ginormous or magnificent but just SOMETHING.
OH! and have I introduced you to my newest assistant, Minnie?
She just LOVES my studio!!!

Well, I had just purchased a big ol' bag of fragrant lavender and
decided that lavender sachets would be simple and relaxing.
Hey, maybe they would turn my attitude around!

What I came up with:

Simple....but so sweet ~ and by the time I was finished, I was smiling!!!!
What is it about creating pretty things????
It truly IS therapy.

Try to make time to make something beautiful,
you'll be glad you did!!!

Happy Thursday precious friends,
hugs and love,

How pretty they are, Dawn! I love the way you incorporated the clock faces. I'll bet it smelled good in your craft room! I get in those moods sometimes, too, and have no idea what brings it on. I'm hoping to get my craft room in order soon {most everything is still in boxes since our move}. It is probably a good idea to go create something to try and move that mood along!

Oh yes, dear friend! Stitching is therapy. It's healing and comforting and satisfying. And these are lovely!

Hugs, Diane

That has to be the answer! Making something beautiful AND filled with lavender. How can you go wrong? Kitty looks right at home and what a perfect name for her...Minnie...she looks a bit timid and shy and wee.

Dear friend- those dayes seems familiar! then it is so good to find a place of ones own- and create ,like you did :)
The lavender sachets are beautiful in all their simplisity.
Love and hugs to you, sweet Dawn.

Cat love stuff don't they! and they love watching their family messing with stuff.
That button with the little clock, really caught my imagination - great work!!
When I am in a funky mood like that I always say to my husband, "Don't tell me any bad news, don't tell me anything, ...I'm going into my art room I will be out for food."

I so enjoy visiting your blog!
These are so pretty and I love the creative embellishments!

Susan Hemann said...

Sometimes I can get crabby when I haven't created something. Love the pillow! Been collecting clock faces for a long time. Made a pin with a larger face, feathers and drift wood.

Irene said...

I must agree, I'm in a much better mood when I've created something. Love your little helper. Your studio looks inspiring.

Ella said...

Glad your view changed; I have been in a rut lately~ Your creations are lovely~
