I always say that in conversations: "the thing is . . . "
"The big thing for me is . . ."
"and another thing . . ."
Cabin fever has struck me early this year. I'm going nuts a little bit. Not the unmanageable depression of the fall, but just at loose ends and weirdly dissatisfied. I trace a lot of this to spending too much time on the computer reading blogs and blog-hopping.
I get off the computer and not only do I not have some wicked cute craft to work on or take pictures of and post, I don't have gobs of cute fabric or craft supplies to make said wicked cute craft.
And on top of that, my house is just average . . . clean some days, messy others, slowly getting organized (if S & K could stop getting things out while I organize) . . . not fantastically lit and staged.
So I've decided to cut down on computer time. I have a lot of pictures on the camera I want to post but they're all projects in the middle of something and I want the "final" pic before loading them and writing posts. And maybe I won't get to them.
Because I want to do things because I want to do them and not becasue I think it'd make a good blog post.
I like the Craft Catwalk at Embellishing Life and other memes around that I've seen but I know I could drive myself crazy trying too hard to make something to be in them.
I look at design blogs and hate the mess I see all around.
So I may not be here much . . . I want to be, but I hate the feeling of "not good enough" that I get from blog-hopping and trying to "compete."
I'm going to try to focus on real life for a little.
The thing is, real life won't wait the way this blog will.
