Weather's Got Me - Again!

I'm getting tired of snow. Waiting for spring for the second year in a row. This gets hard on the psyche.

I'm also struggling with my lack of creativity. I've worked here and there on pieces, but nothing steady and haven't finished anything lately. I have a number of projects in the works, but nothing I really want to work on right now. I find it difficult to come home to be creative after working all day. Just don't have the drive I wish I had. Perhaps it's the result of working on the website - it's just sucking my creative energy.

The Milwaukee Bead Show is tomorrow - have a few items I'd like to buy (making myself determine what is a need and what is a want lately) for a community project to donate for an auction to raise breast cancer research money. This is what is on my list: fabric for bead embroidery and pink beads. Should be interesting to see what else I buy.

The Oscars are tomorrow - I like to watch the red carpet reports although I find most of the interviewers boring. So, in honor of the Oscars, here's another Eggman morphing video of the men of film (some of the morphs are creepy).

Today's quote comes from Ursula K. LeGuin: It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters in the end.

A friend recently said that she enjoyed working on pieces more than focusing on the completion. Having been a card-carrying member of the procrastinators club forever, this is a habit I'm trying to break. Wish me luck.

Hi Amy - I am trying to finish my Romantica as I speak - Well took a bit of a break I guess. Good luck sticking to that list tomorrow! Rebecca
