It's Been Awhile-

Well, it's been awhile since I've posted. Why? Because I'm not sewing. I've been busy... Busy with the kids, busy with the shop, busy, busy, busy. It really stinks. I have so many ideas floating around in my head about projects that need to get finished, projects that I would love to start, projects that I need to figure out how to get done.  

I stay awake at night thinking about all the different fabrics that I have available to me and what I could possibly do with them. Sometimes I love a fabric and I sit there and do nothing with it until just the right project comes along. And sometimes I love a pattern and then I go on the hunt for the fabric that would make it perfect. And right now neither one of those are meshing. I'm not motivated to sew a single thing. I'm not motivated to finish anything I've started- I mean between the phone ringing, customers coming in the door, emails that have to be answered... And then when I get home the kid is screaming about some perceived injustice (I mean he's 2 1/2 so when he can't have ice cream before dinner he's screaming that it's not fair.) and all this while my 13 year old daughter is in Canada with her church group. She's enjoying the beautiful sights and experiencing something amazing. All while I stay up until after midnight trying to paint and re do her room. I decided- in my utmost wisdom that while she is gone would be the perfect time to tear her room apart and fix her walls and paint it the color she picked out months ago.  

So at the end of the day I'm just too tired to let me creative juices flow freely. Which stinks. It's been a solid 2 weeks since I've done any of the sewing I've needed to do. But maybe today will be the day. Maybe today I will make ME a priority for a few hours and get some of these things cleared off my to do list. Maybe today I will make myself feel better and lighten some of this load. 

Or I'll just do the laundry.....
