So Thank You to Amazon -
I received my Crafters Devotional in record time.
I immediately ripped off the packaging
and tore the book out of it's protective cardboard womb.
Why waste time.
Off the top of my head I've decided to go in order.
Frankly I'm a pain in the ass Virgo and
if I don't use some sort of order
I am sure to aggravate myself.
Well the first prompt is to start a journal.
I don't think I am the journaling type.
However I am SUPPOSED to be challenging myself.
You can see my dilemma.
I've always wanted to be a "journaler"
I get a few pages in and
perhaps because it's not perfect-
I give up.
To journal or not to journal.
I like working in my head.
I see some form of inspiration
and the finished project pops into my head.
Of course in reality it may or may not work.
Something about drawing it out or
writing it down
leaves me feeling...exposed?
Yet I adore looking at the creative journals of others.
Do I push myself?
How does your creative brain work?
Do you journal...and enjoy it?
...or is it just part of your process?
I have a ton of goodies waiting to be played with.
Unfortunately it would seem
my creativity has taken the summer off.
I am getting a bit frustrated with myself.
I put this out there the other day
and the Universe send me an answer
She gave me the small shoots of an idea -
as she has been looking for inspiration as well -
we've decided to feed and water it together!
I purchased this from Amazon and we've been
emailing back and forth.
We know we are not alone.
Are you looking to jump start your creativity?
Why don't you join us?
Here is Elisabeths description:
So to be organized leave a comment on
if you would like to join in -
and lets inspire each other!
I'm looking foward to this! YAY : )
Happy Thursday! Patty
Groove, Mojo, Muse ....
which ever term you like
mine is missing.
There seems to be a lot of this going on.
I've heard others rumbling.
Thought I would try looking for it
...at the beach.
Luckily we live next to the biggest lake in Connecticut.
Ooh ...the big one is on to something!
Maybe my mojo is in there!
I send in my minions....
I'm starting to get excited...
maybe my creative juices will be back.
Damn...... this is definately NOT my mojo.
...nor is this...
So they found crayfish, frogs, baby catfish
and some sunnies...which were all thrown back.
My mojo was definately NOT in there.
How is your mojo doing?
So many ideas in my head and
apparently none of them want to come out.
I guess I will ride the tide for now.
How was your Monday?
Ok so it took me 3 cameras,
2 hours and a few changes of memory
cards to get anything out today.
So frustrating not being able to jump in,
and just post.
It's definately hampering my urge to blog.
I haven't found my groove or maybe I lost
or the kids ran off and buried it in the woods.
All of the above?
I'm not digging the image quality either.
I didn't love my dinky Olympus when I had it but
I really do miss it now : P
I hope you are staying cool and getting to enjoy your
Sincerly....She who is frustrated.
Join in with Lori at
for "I Complain About Macro Sunday"
My lovely blog friend Meeling of
proposed a fun summer jewelry swap
This is what I sent my partner
She described summer as
"To me summer means ice cream, watermelon, butterflies, bright fun colors, pastel colors, flip flops, travel,
photography, lemonade, cupcakes, milkshakes, strawberries, kite flying, reading
books, going to the beach, polka dots, and stripes."
My favorite color is blue and of course I love flowers!
Here is what Sandy sent me : )
Thank You to both lovely ladies!
Hope you are enjoying your summer
I've been running around like a headless chicken.
The beginning of the week started with
- a water tank leak
- a broken washer
- the dog chewing up my husbands glasses
(she still won't look him in the eye - you know where his glasses were?)
- later I found half a flip flop...
- my husbands truck not starting
- our septic alarm going off at 3:00 am
Somewhere along the line I must
have stepped in a big pile of something!
I still don't have a proper camera
that doesn't have an issue
hence the picture from my phone.
I must Frankenstien all the good parts and
get something working.
The kids are all still in one piece so
I've done my job there.
Lastly I've had a cousin friend me on Facebook
in case I die and leave anyone money.
I hate to tell him he wasted his time!
Are we half way to September yet?
Happy Friday! Patty
