the not so creative day

Have you ever had one of those days? 

You want to create something so badly! But it's just not coming... That's what happened to me today. Yesterday, just to make things clear, I sat down during my two-hour break and my work was sliding through my fingers with the smoothest motion. I mean my project was coming along so well and the sawing machine was my best friend. Now back to today... My head was full of ideas for my Etsy shop. But of course, lots of ideas - and not so much time. Today I sat down in my room (which is almost organized), ready to finish a little girl skirt, which I started, but nothing went right. My sawing machine was not cooperating, the ideas were all wrong, and then my baby woke up earlier than usual. Being adventurous as I am, I decided to finish it with her in the room... lol. She wanted to help by giving me the pins. Yes, the sharp, pointy things you use to stab the fabric with. And you know what, I let her. That's how desperate I was. Together we almost finished the skirt without any major casualties. Now, of course, I am not sure if I am satisfied with the outcome (I think I need to make just one more).
After having four kids playing in my house, while I was trying to make dinner and finish laundry, the evening came and instead of going down to create, I feel more like laying on the couch and watching a movie. Glass of red wine and an ice cream sundae might fix it all. And you know what? I might just put two cherries on top today.

P.S.: Yes, the above photo is a sneak peak into my newly almost organized craft room!

Some days are like that. I have my little niece 2 days a week and on those days nothing gets done...except coloring and painting, then 20 minutes to wash her hands. They won't be little forever...enjoy them. Love, Penny

I have many days like that. It seems like nothing is coming together and things aren't cooperating. I usually have five things going at once and finish them up in spurts as I have a cooperative day. I like the peek of your craft room!

Thank you ladies for your comments! That makes me feel a lot better :-)
