Once again, Lelly has inspired me (I am not really surprised by this). If you haven't already, be sure to check out her challenges for SPTs during September. After missing several weeks of SPTs this summer, I am thrilled to be jumping back in to the fun.
The amazing community of bloggers is constantly causing my jaw to drop, my brain to whirl, emergency trips to Hobby Lobby planned and my creative to-do list to grow longer. There may even be drooling. Shhhh...don't tell.
Some of the drooling is caused by this, this nest, this one too, and this new find.
I want to rummage in thrift stores, sew aprons/holiday pillowcases/curtains/quilts, spray paint frames and furniture black, knit, make interesting decorative arrangements on my mantle/table/shelves/armoire top/walls/side tables and change them out seasonally, make silhouettes of our family (or at least our hands), make a wall arrangement out of framed fabrics or papers, and on and on. And on.
Of course I am paralyzed by the sheer enormity of the things I want to do, so therefore I do nothing.
Maybe it's kismet, but Lelly's challenges this month seems to have lit a creative spark and I feel ready to try some of the projects. I know!
My plan is to start small, with things I can easily do. Chris at Just a Girl (she has all kinds of decorative ideas) and Kristin of We are THAT Family have inspired me to put cute things under glass, because we all know glass sets the most simple things off and adds a touch of wow.
Things under glass. This I can do.
I don't have a cloche (it's on The List), and I can't find my large jar (I think I packed it away last Fall--I did put gourds in it though), but I do have this on hand.
I realize I am cheating somewhat with this SPT, since I haven't actually done anything yet. I am after all, a creative work in progress that is easily distracted. Is there a 12-step program for this?
Be sure to pop over to Lelly's blog to see everyone's creative twists on this week's challenge.
