Some Inspiration. . .

I have been in a crafty/emotional funk this last week or two. I can't decide if it is because Pattern Makeover Month is over, and I miss it. . . Or maybe it is because it is almost June and we still have not had any spring weather. . . Or maybe it is because K3 moved her bedroom into my sewing room so I can't sew in the evenings. . . Or maybe it has something to do with K1 finishing first grade (how can I have a SECOND GRADER ALREADY?!?!?). . . Or maybe it is a combination of all of the above.

So what does that mean?
It means, I have not accomplished much and my inspiration is running on low.

Thank goodness for my online friends!

Several of them (all at once!) have announced some crafty contests that have INSPIRED ME! I can't wait to get started! And I would love to have you join me, too. Here is the info:

Thanks for the shout out, Leisel! Can't wait to see what you make! Oh, and I am totally with you on crafty funk. But I place the blame soley on my blog partner who is moving 4000 miles away from me in a few weeks. Yep, totally her fault.

Thanks for spreading the word, Leisel. I'm sorry about the funk. My littlest one just moved herself into her big girl room and big girl bed, instead of the nursery. And since she's my last, I'm kind of sad too. And now have an open room that I'm not sure what to do with . . .

Sometimes it's nice to just have down time...that's what I have been doing lately, and I gotta admit, it's kind of nice ;-)...You'll be sewing again before you know it ;-)
