On pinterest (have you signed up for it yet? It's the most amazing time sucker ever), I found a phrase that I haven't been able to get out of my head for a while- "If it's important, you'll find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse." There will always be something else that probably needs to be done, but I can find a way to fit in the things I want, too.
I need to be creative again. I need to be working towards goals. These cupcakes are the last bit of crafty-ness I've done, and that was at the beginning of this month. There is always a great reason- teething baby, messy house, other obligations. I do know, though, that I'm happier when I'm working on a project and allowing myself that outlet. There will always be a reason not to, but I really want to make sure I'm taking the time to work on some of the goals I've set, creative and otherwise.
I'll be helping a friend with a baby blanket soon, and I'm looking forward to that- but I need to get back to work on some of my own stuff too. It's not a lack of supplies or ideas that's keeping me from workin on it- it's just me being stopped by feeling overwhelmed with life. I think if I take the time to focus on a project like this- even just a little each day- I can conquer feeling overwhelmed, too.
