Eggies & Swap Yummies

I really seem to be in a winter slump. Sometimes I have so many projects to finish & start that I just procrastinate it all for days. Yes, days on end I pace around doing ...well nothing but tidying up & tinkering here & there. How do you get rid of those creativity blockers??? I did manage to finish they wool felt eggs, but Im really trying to get out of this uncreative slump Im in, and today this lovely parcel really helped!!!! Just look at this fabulous pink smock!!! (Dont look at the dirty mirror though OK)
Im soooo inlove with it. Thank you so much Raesha!!! You sent such an amazing pink & brown swap parcel, just look at all the loveliness!!!! How did you know how bad I needed a new notebook....and how many magnetic shopping list pads I go through??? There was ribbon, beads,a raspberry cookbook, stoneware mold(I collect pampered chef by the way!) Notecards,candy,brads, chocolate,
and just look at these cute polka-dot coasters, and matching handmade zipper bags. How uplifting!! Raesha, you have totally outdone yourself!! Thank you again for your kindness! What a fabulous swap!

Have a Fantabulous Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day Angela. Love the smock and it looks like you scored BIG on that swap! yeah! I hate those slumps! I usually just try and forget about it, just tell myself that I am just going to take the day off and I will get back to it tomorrow. Orrrrr--I sit down and page through old craft mags or books and jot stuff down in my art journal. That usually will get the juices going. I'm sure you will be back at it before you know it!
Hugs, Karen

Creative slump! I usually spend a few hours cruising the crafty blogs or look at a few japanese craft magazines. I think when I see what everyone else has been doing.... it makes me feel slack and forces me to flick through my journal which is always full of ideas.

Hi, I have just come across your blog, gorgeous stuff! The eggs are great, and I LOVE your Valentine CD cookies, so I don't believe you can be in a slump!

Lovely, lovely eggs! Your gifts are beautiful. Maybe it's not so much a slump you're in but rather a "re-gathering of energies" kind of "time-out." Sometimes that's what we need.

That's a nice boost! I find myself wandering around, tidying and tinkering too. At the end of the day I feel like if I could just stay awake, I'd make something..but it's too late by then, of course. Now I am telling myself.."just one more blog and then I'll make something." I like your eggs. I did some in homespun but I really love yours. They're gorgeous. Hope you're feeling inspired in your awesome smock!

The eggs are too cute (and another idea I may have to pirate!). As a side note, you have all these new posts that bloglines hadn't told me about. Harrumph, stupid bloglines.
