Confessions...

Well, it's been a while since I posted and I have to admit I've lost my creative mojo. And I hate to post without having something to show even if it's just a photo I took (my camera is sitting somewhere in the house collecting dust at the moment). With my new position at work I've been putting in long days and by the weekend I've been useless. Unfortunately I'm a not so secret workaholic and trying to get back on the road to recovery. My paints are calling out to me and I still have ideas swirling in my head. It's the actual sitting down and getting to it that is the problem.

I think I am starting to get the itch again but I'm also in the process of packing up all my supplies so I can rip out the carpeting. My house is 12 years old now and sadly in need of a flooring makeover. I don't have the money right now but just can't take it any longer so testing the option of utilizing the concrete floor at least on the first level. I actually like the look which is more contemporary so trying to figure out if I need to use stain or paint and what color to go with. I have found a couple places that carry eco friendly materials so going that route as soon as I get the color thing figured out. It also has the advantage of being easy to clean up if I spill paint. My grand plan is to put down bamboo flooring one day throughout the house. Well, I digress.

I do want to say thank you to those who keep checking in on me to be sure I'm still alive. Your persistence is a great encouragement to me.

Next week one of my best friends, Rebecca, and I are going to Inspired Artist Workshops so hopefully I will post things from the fun classes we take. I have to say I'm really excited to get away and spend several days devoted to fun and creativity.

Again, thanks for not giving up on me. ;-)

we're facing the carpet issue sometime in the near future .... just the thought of moving virtually every stick of everything into the garage for 2 days leaves me utterly exhausted .... I've been putting it off and putting it off .... and then the thought of all my old carpet going to a landfill .... it's all so tiring .... no wonder you're in limbo .... hang in there though!

Every muse needs a rest now and then! I think sometimes we do not give ourselves credit for the various ways we are creative in our everyday lives.
Take care ... I'm sure you'll be back and creating in no time!

Have fun at your workshop! Cant' wait to see what you do.
Good luck on your floor. I just finished staining my back porch so if you have any questions... well you know. just ask.
And don't worry your creative mojo will come back. You need to fill the well again. It takes time.
