Overload

Sometimes I just want to do everything. I can get so inspired and worked up about things, I almost throw up. Really. Lately, it has been bad. I want to sew, knit, paint furniture, make jewelry, bake up a storm, take a painting class, and lately I have been on the fence about buying some soap making and candle making supplies.
I have been quite the exciting person to be around lately I am sure.
The other night I told my husband I was just going to realx, watch television and not do a thing.
" Yeah, right " were his exact words.



Okay, well, he does know me pretty well. These little ditties have been in my head for a while. I love pearls, and turquoise.
I will have lots of little home improvement things coming up to share with you.
Very exciting.
Even my husband thinks so.

So Much Fun said...

I completely understand. There are about a thousand things I want to do today. There are about 3 thousand things I want to do this week. I have started to slowly realize I am one woman, and have to do the things that I enjoy most, and work on delegating the rest...back to the thousand things i want to do!

I've been feeling the same way too. I wish I could focus on just a few crafts but there are just so many things that excite me that I want to do. Sigh.

I love the bracelets.

I love the turquoise bracelet! I'd love to have that along with a matching necklace ;-)
I'm with you, I want to do everything too. I dream of the day where I can spend all my time flitting from one project to the next.

Katie Jean said...

oh, I'm definitely the same way. I have started three knitting projects since my class on Saturday and I'm about to take out my sewing stuff again. I really should be taking a nap :)

The bracelets look amazing!

Kaet said...

I love reading and looking at your blog because it is so inspiring. My head spins with all you get done and create. Your amazing. I wish I had half your talent and then a little of that energy too!

angie said...

With the amount you already do, I can't fathom you having more ideas undone in your brain. You are amazing. Can't wait to see the home improvements.

Lisa said...

These are really beautiful. I know how you feel about the crafts thing. Always so many things you want to do and never quite enough time to do it all.

I usually have to burn the midnight oil to get anything done because everyone else is asleep then-lol.

Have a great week!

I like to check your blog because you are always up to something new. I can't imagine you being any busier. I have tried the fast cleaning you mentioned, and all was going well until I mopped my floors with oil soap. It was like an ice ring (I guess they're the type that don't need the oil). My 4 yr old loved it but I wiped out in one of my cleaning episodes and hurt my knee. Lesson-Be good to yourself and relax. Otherwise, your body just might make you.

Balance- not so easy when there are so many projects you want to do.

I am waiting for the warmer weather to paint my daughter's day bed and to GARDEN. Today we have our real full taste of snow. So I may have to bundle up and join the crew outside, leaving the sewing for later tonight ; )

Love the bracelets! I love turquoise and pearls! So fun to work with.

I get it. Last night, I was looking at looms. Understand, I do not know anything about weaving. At all. I just know it's pretty. Maybe I should workon the spinning, sewing, and knitting.

a friend to knit with said...

gorgeous bracelets!!!!

Shannon said...

I am so there with you! There are so many things I want to do but so many more that I HAVE to do. Been painting rooms lately which isn't much fun and doesn't leave time for the fun stuff. Soon. In the meantime I just love coming and seeing what you come up with. Love the bracelets!

Katie said...

annoymous, oh no! I hope you are okay! yes, you are right about taking it easy sometimes. I have learned my lesson the hard way with a reoccuring back injury.

I completely understand this, too. This past year I have had no time for crafts (since the birth of my twins) and I would get so upset I'd want to cry because I have so many projects that are sitting waiting to be finished and I'm dying to finish them! Now that the girls are older I'm starting to get some projects started. Your bracelets are beautiful. You are good at so many things.

Marcia said...

Great braceletts! I never just sit and watch tv either. I enjoy it so much more with some knitting or sewing in my hands too.

Gorgeous bracelets!
