In a Little Rut

Sometimes I get in a little blogging rut...well, a life rut really.  But I don't even know if I should call it a rut because I have a lot of ideas, & I want to do something but it just doesn't amount to anything.  Maybe it's like an overload...I dunno.
Like right now, I'd love to sit down & do a really awesome blog post but I don't know what to say...so I'm just telling it like it is.  Do you ever feel this way?  Like you've got a lot to do but no where to start?

With our house being in a constant state of disarray & things constantly getting moved, reorganized, and shuffled around I feel lost.  I just can't get a handle on it.  I've always been that way & sometimes change sorta disrupts where I am.  In college when I moved, you sorta just move in & put your things away.  You don't have to fix anything & thank god my college apartments were furnished.  I felt in a constant state of transition for a long time.  Durring college it was fine, moving is what you do...but when I graduated I was ready to settle down & spend some time in one place.  Which didn't really work out that great with our last apartment but now that I'm here....I just want it to be over.  I want to have a desk, a place, I want to be settled down.  Everything is piled up here, I just want it put away.
So I wake up everyday, for some reason I just feel so sleepy in the mornings, & set to work.  On things for the blog, design clients, various stuff for the shop, & other obligations...but then I feel like I'm getting no where with it all.  Things get done but not as much as I'd like.  It's weird cuz I want to do more but I also just want to crochet in bed while watching Supernatural.  I think it's the I'm my own boss thing so I can convince myself to put things off or that things really aren't as awesome as I think they are.

I'd also like to be able to go back on the road with Zach.  It was so fun!  We'd stop at neat places, eat yummy food, & just sew up the dotted line to where he needs to be.  Maybe I'm just getting a bit stir crazy, I dunno.
I've finished up some more work here today both on the home front & the design front...you should check out the really sweet new header over at Polka Dotted Chaos, just saying.

I dunno, I don't mean to alarm you but I think that life is sorta being life right now......& I need to grab it.  I also think its because I've not found too many interesting things to photograph lately.  I need to go somewhere!  You know how I love playing with iphone apps!

  1. I think sometimes we all need a breather from life - something different to remind us that we have a passion and ability to do creative things. I hope you find your mojo soon!
    (Oh, & I'm a new follower and your blog is lovely.)

  2. I get like that a little sometimes too! Recently i decluttered, rearranged and decorated a little my current home. I was so tried of living in a boring house that I allocated three days just to sort it all out! I'm convinced it helped clear my mind. However its my crafty room that still needs some love, so many things, not enough pretty storage!

  3. I am in a state of transition right now as well. I moved back to my parents house to pay off looming bills, and I long for my own place again!It will be in a few months, but I want a place to decorate!
