Confession #1 - I haven't made anything creative in three weeks, okay maybe it's more like four. A month! This is unacceptable. Just haven't been in the mood. Just haven't made time. Just haven't had the free time that coincided with being in the mood. It was the end of the 1st quarter of school; I went on vacation; I had to recover from vacation and get back in the swing of things at school. Yadda. Yadda. Yadda. I'm currently a crafty failure. This teacher face accurately demonstrates how I feel about my lack of craftiness. Lol!
Confession #2 - Rather than scrapbook or sew or craft, I've been reading voraciously and working on writing a novel. (More to come soon about the novel thing...) I've kept up with blogging. I've worked and seen my friends/family and taken naps and watched tv and paid bills and cleaned house. I've been productive, then, but not in a craftily relevant way. Is craftily relevant even a real phrase? Oh well, it is now.
Confession #3 - I've talked about crafting. In my head, I've planned a dozen projects - at least - that haven't come to fruition. I've podcasted about scrapbooking. I've thought about getting creative. I even sat at my desk one night last week and looked through my fall supplies and pics in preparation of making a layout. But I didn't make anything. I was exhausted after looking through my stuff and just gave up. Plus, I found a pic of my mom at my exact age and it sort of put a damper on the whole crafty plan, considering my mortality and everything, ya know.

Confession #4 - Craftiness is on my calendar. After podcasting on Sunday, I was super motivated to make stuff. This always happens. Unfortunately, I had other plans Sunday night and then was too tired on Monday night and had night class on Tuesday night and other plans on Wednesday night...do you see a theme here? My plan is to spend some time Sunday morning, Monday evening, and Friday evening crafting. I really need to get a handle on fitting crafting into my life because I miss it.
Confession #5 - There are so many projects I want to make that I feel a little bit paralyzed. (Kind of ironic considering the topic of next week's podcast; be sure to tune in!)
The takeaway? I guess I just need to do more and stress less, craft more and plan less, enjoy more and avoid less. Crafting makes me happy, so I need to make it happen!
