What do you do when there is absolutely no motovation in you? I clean! Organizing my little creative space today, I am hoping I will find some inspiration lurking on a shelf, inside a jar or hiding under a pile. I am at one of those points when I have a ton of little things to do. Packaging, embellishing, pricing...you know the stuff. All little, easy things to do, but what do I do? I procrastinate. Because there's nothing major, I say I can do it tomorrow and then all of a sudden tomorrow comes and there's too much to do! So I am hoping to get motivated to do something big, so I will have to finish all the small stuff before I start a major project.

I had a great weekend. Lots of rain and even snow in No. Calif. The rain brought out cooped up people for
my class and I ended up having a great time with 7 talented ladies at Scrapbook island in San Jose. Lots of personality in this class and all were creative so they needed little direction. Which is a good thing. It leaves more time for chatting! What I love most about teaching at scrapbook stores is the students normally are all about scrapbooking or card making so a lot of the techniques are new to them. It always makes me smile when they learn to stamp with bubble wrap or when they learn that Mod Podge is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Or they use Stickles for the first time and wonder where it's been all their lives.

So this post was a bit all over the place, wasn't it? Just like my head!


  1. Sounds like you had a ball! And I know how you feel about the organizing thing!! I'm a little scattered this week too. :) Look forward to seeing your next project! :)

  2. I guess a crafter wouldn't be a crafter without a wee bit of procrastination from time to time. Totally normal. frustrating, but normal lol smile, Virginie vivibijoux.com
