Our Daily Dose of Inspiration

The Queen and I are taking off this morning to open the gates of the local craft show. This is a big one ... over 400 vendors. There is also a flea market that we might go over to tomorrow. This is where I get my ideas, thinking "I can make that, I can sew that, I can knit that, I can crochet that" then I come home, arm myself with all the supplies and then realize what a dolt I was to think I could do it.

I have all this creative energy right now. I want to create. I want to make. I want to buy. I want I want I want.

Do you think that EVERYone is like this?

A few years ago, I could have cared less. Now I need to find that creative outlet. I need to be doing something constantly. If I'm not knitting, I'm crocheting. If I am not crocheting, I am buying things to knit the next project. If I am not buying knitting items, I am buying scrapbooking stuff (HAPPY NATIONAL SCRAPBOOK DAY, PEEPS!). Then the stuff ... sits.

Now, I can't let a good yarn sit on the shelf too long. Scrapbook stuff ... it can sit for years in the same bag. Isn't that awful? I know, friends. It is a true travesty.

But I am about the instant. Ask me how long it took for me to make three scrapbook pages the last time I was our local store. 45 minutes, start to finish. I am simple. I keep it simple. I don't journal. Journaling to me is a waste of time. But I know I should do it. When I see a scrapbook situation, I do think about how I would journal it. I see things as scrapbook situations, too. I know most scrappers do.

So this weekend is a good one. Crafting, trying to get work finished at a decent hour (which is what I should be doing right now ...), soccer games, and a mother/daughter banquet tonight ... now that I could take or leave, but it is everyone, minus the Monkey. But she could attend.

Here's just hoping that my choir director isn't the one who wants to "escort" me to my table.

Ok. Off I go. Have a productive and happy weekend!

Hey girl... I seen you at the craft show, but you were a bit of distance away, and besides, I had a bite of breaded tenderloin in my mouth, so I couldn't yell at ya! I find that I am not much into t.v anymore, really only greys, and dancing with the stars other than that I could care less, and chris dosn't undertand why... he loves t.v. oh well! Have a good time getting crafty!
