Schedules and Routines Back to Normal?

Well time sure is starting to fly by again, since I got home. It seems that schedules and routines are now getting back to normal, and time is of the essence. No matter how hard I try, there doesn't seem to be enough time in a day to get done with all the things that I am needing to accomplish. We won't even begin to mention the stuff that I WANT to get done!

This week I am back to prepping for classes, gearing up to get back in the full swing of things for class night, and of course, thinking ahead to October classes. Mind you, at this point, thinking is all that is happening.

Along the way, I am trying hard to get myself some creating time in (not class related) and I am inspired to the highest level, but can't find just the right papers that I feel would be best for these upcoming projects! It is horrible when you imagine a certain look in your head, and yet can't get it out. It feels as if creativity is locked within side of me, just itching to get out, and yet has been postponed!

I am driving myself crazy thinking about what I 'want', that I guess I just may have to really go outside of the box on this one. Only problem is that whatever I come up with, has to be easily duplicated 5X. Now this is going to be interesting to see how any of this will pan out for me. I have always liked a good challenge, and anyone that knows me, knows I am not capable of backing down. So onto a great journey to see if this is going to work out. I have a deadline for these projects, as well. This is going to really make it more of an interesting journey. The next month is going to be very busy, and hopefully productive in the way that I am hoping!

HOME/Reality sets in

Well holidays are over, and I am home, yet again! I can't believe how quickly summer has flown by! It seems we wait through out a very long and dragged out winter for the nice weather to arrive and stick around and then POOF...just like that it flies right by! How is that even considered to be fair?

Holidays were GREAT! Had a wonderful road trip with hubby! It was so good to finally be out of the house, spending some one on one quality time with him! We don't get to do this near often enough to suit me! The roads were certainly well traveled this week and lots of photos were taken! I will share some with you all within a few days.

Now that I am home, it is time to get back to some sort of normalcy with routine and schedules. This is the worst part of holiday wind down. Makes me wish we could just pick up and escape NOW! Since this is not a possibility, it means time to get my mind wrapped around all of the things here that are calling my name. I have to tend to the laundry (after DH gets new dryer hooked up) Our dryer, unfortunately decided to die on us just before we left on our holidays. Oh one was purchased and delivered and now is actually getting hooked up. This was a nice surprise when we got home! This will definitely make getting the laundry caught up nicer when I get that far (tomorrow). Have been on a cleaning frenzy today, and have been getting some things accomplished. Not as much as I would like, at this point, but we just got home last night!!!

Tomorrow will more than likely be better in the cleaning department. Today I am tired and just really not feeling all that into the whole cleaning thing! I guess I can take a day off after holidays to get that 'home mode' back! Then it will be time to kick it into full gear, schedules, routine and back to having my mind working on over load with everything that needs to get done!

Hopefully after this week is over, and life gets back to the norm, I will be able to even sit and consider getting some creativity happening. I lack motivation, inspiration and drive anymore for this. It seems that if I am not creating class things, I am not creating! I have to make this stop and put into my schedule some ME time in this area. It is my goal to get the inspiration flowing, the photos printed and then let the creativity flow! Wish me luck!!

Until next time!

Terrible....but changing!

Well it appears that I have been extremely terrible about keeping up with my blog. This past year has been one of many issues and I have hardly found any time for much online business. I have not done any real creating since last July and have had nothing new to share with anyone.
Life has gotten busy and there has been so much to get done just to manage on a day to day basis.

I am really hoping that in the weeks to come that things will begin to change and that I will be able to post more often. I am hoping that there will be some creating along the way as well and then I will have something to really share. In the meantime, I am going to try and get better at posting just about my daily life and somewhere along the way there should be something creative too! One can certainly hope, anyways!

I have revamped just slightly with a new look, and am hoping this will encourage me to keep up with postings! Now all I have to do is find something to post about, and perhaps even find some motivation and inspiration to get back to my crafty self! I really do miss the creative element in my life!

If you are still out there and visit my blog from time to time....Thank You! I know it has been an extremely long time, but at times life has to come first!
