WOYWW 270--Getting Unstuck

Do you ever get stuck inbetween projects trying to figure out the next thing you really want to make? Seriously, I need to get a grip on this and get my creative mojo going again!

It's What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday and I'm sending a photo of my desk to you right from the beautiful, sunny, summer Ozarks.
I've got this stack of fabric, ready to go on some tags and mixed media ideas.
Now I thought my new ATG gun would really get me motivated on my cards and scrapbooking. But honestly, it took all I had just to figure out how to load this thing! I'm still not quite sure if I like it that much. Give me a week a with it.
When all else fails though--pull out the box of beads. Making bracelets with those little glass seed beads and copper wire makes me happy.
Now I'm off to the store for some white champagne vinegar. I'm getting ready to pick some fresh tomatoes and peppers and make some salsa to can in some really cute little fat jars. Apparently DH used up the champagne vinegar I had in the cupboard to unclog a drain! (that's a very fancy way to unclog a drain) But no worries. It's better to get new ingredients like that when you are canning. Cheers and hugs!

Eat, Write, Dream, Stitch, Be Happy


  1. I hear you on the MoJo....hoping as fall approaches I get back into doing things I love. For now it seems just playing catch up on Life and its demands. Think I have a week free and it fills up with Lots of other things. This week it's my husbands garden....Enjoy the week and good luck

  2. Yes, I definitely do get stuck, not so much between projects as during . . . Since I do Project Life, it's the never-ending project and sometimes I have to remind myself to take that album off the table and do something else! Hope inspiration strikes! Happy WOYWW. ~ Laura # 60

  3. I haven't tried champagne vinegar. I do use vinegar for all kinds of things - it's cheap and works wonders. :-) Give your ATG gun a chance - you will love it. :-) April #54

  4. Oh you will make something lovely with all that fabric I am sure! x Jo

  5. What a gorgeous pile of fabric - so pretty. I love my ATG gun and I'm sure you'll get to love yours, but it does take a little time to get used to it. Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by my blog.

  6. Yes! We're the 53 twins, yeehar :-). We can have our own transatlantic party! I'll bring the cheese and pineapple on sticks, you can do salsa and chips and we can have cocktails (with little umbrellas in, of course!). I'll go for a mojito, what about you? We've got to have fairy lights and candles around the garden and some good ol' disco music to bust some moves.
    And then you won't care about the mojo disappearing :-)

    Ps, pretty bracelets, so could make some for party wear too!
