On the verge of creativity ~

Sometimes...just sometimes, it takes a little while
to get your creativity flowing again.

It seems to me that the regular ol' life stuff
always tries to choke it out of you.
But guess what?
It simply can't.

When you are creative it's like a constant
flowing stream that continues on,
no matter what.

Yes, you will have lulls...
and times where it's just not going to happen.
But it will always, always keep flowing.
Through your mind and soul ~

I sometimes have to even look at what I've created in the past
to realize what I love.
I especially love looking at my Pinterest board
that features so many beautiful art pieces from other artists...
it is such wonderful inspiration!

And then sometimes...
it just takes getting started.
Moving supplies around,
looking at the beautiful things you have gathered and
just starting SOMETHING.
Even if it's so very simple...

I just purchased a brand new bag of lavender
and have pulled out some fabric...

And guess what sweet friends...
you're not going to believe this ~
But in about two weeks,
this angel grandson of ours will be turning ONE!!
Oh sweet baby Murray!
Where did the time go??

Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday dear friends,
hugs and love,

Oh my goodness, one already, Dawn!?! That was a fast year!

I know the feeling. There are things I know I "need" to make, but I don't want to do them until I'm "feeling it" otherwise it will feel like a chore and I don't want that to happen. What I need to do is when I'm in the mood, do sewing projects all that day. An example is the Christmas stockings I'm sewing. Even if I just cut them out one day and do all the sewing another day, I should try to do as many as I can. This way I'm ready to go.

Dawn, your "collections" are so lovely. As sweet as their owner. When I'm down, I always visit your blog and your words lift me up. You don't know the good you do by just being you. Murray is so darling....can't believe it's been a whole year!

You have a beautiful stash of fabrics. And what a little charmer that sweet Murray is.

Oh dear Dawn, I loved scrolling slowly down the photos letting my senses roam. Then there was his face. That beautiful smile. Those eyes. And my heart melted.

Murray has such gorgeous blue eyes. He is the most beautiful baby.
