I'm in a rut. I don't know what it is. I'm not one who flourishes in the summer like some people do. I hate the heat. I hate to sweat. We live in the city where summer is oppressive rather than care free. It's just not my season and I can't seem to focus. My DH is having a hard time, too. He told me he's either having a midlife crises or going through puberty again. Whatever it is, he's driving me nuts. Thank goodness we have a vacation at the end of the month to look forward to. I think we both need a break.
To break out of my rut I'm again (or still) cleaning out the craft room. I feel like I just move stuff from one side to the other but at least I'm doing something about it. During the process I noticed how unfocused I really am with the abundance of half done projects fondly known as UFOs.
So welcome to my Land of the Misfit Toys. You'll notice my dolly still has no face nor does my monkey. The pink dog needs eyes and a tail and that brown lump* will eventually be a rabbit (though the stuffing shows through the stitches a bit too much for my liking) and that's a pink panda there on the right. Seriously, I need to just finish them! I don't see why I'm having such a hard time. I also have two crocheted baby sweaters that only need to have buttons sewn to them. That would take 20 minutes. Like I said, NO FOCUS.
So starting tomorrow I'm kicking it in gear. No more excuses. If I didn't have to go to the office for work I'd be starting today. You'll be seeing a lot more things up in the shop and I'll also be putting together another tiara bag of goodies for a giveaway. I might even try EBay again just to get rid of some things. I really wish I could have a big yard sale but I don't think that flies in Queens. :)
So again, send me some energy, motivation and focus. I need it! I do have some really find thrifty finds from the weekend to share and hopefully, some completed toys, later in the week. Thanks for sticking by me when I'm not feeling so creative. I promise you, Fall will be different.

* my husband saw the brown lump and said "what's with the Hershey's Kiss Kid? Where are you going with this?" NICE
