Today I woke up feeling stuck. Or rather, like not doing anything that I should be doing. I haven't made anything new for the shop in over a week. I have some paper in my "studio", if you want to call it that, and a bunch of ideas that I can certainly do something with (as well as some fabric, which is something new I'd like to incorporate....hopefully more on that later) but I am having a problem getting started. Could be that I still don't feel well and have a cough that just won't go away, giving me a headache. Could be the thousand other things that need taking care of around here that I need to get to first- the ever-growing to-do list. Whatever it is, I think I'm in a little bit of a rut.

And I'm not the only one!


  1. I'm totally with you! I keep making excuses for why I haven't gotten anything done... I haven't even posted in my blog in over a week! At least you are making awesome treasuries!

  2. I know how you feel; last week I had trouble even adding items to my shop; nevermind making new soap. I just took a few days off; then this week I feel like going forward full-bore. Just take a few days for yourself; they say a "watch pot never boils"; boy have I found that to be true with my shop!

  3. Thanks, ladies! I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I forced myself into action and have a set of magnets brewing...we'll see how it goes!
