It has been raining all day, and I think my yard is looking more and more like a pool or maybe a mud-wrestling pit! It reminds me of the creative muck and mire that sometimes we get stuck in. A rut, writer's block, blogging block, call it what you will. Some days we're inspired and know exactly what to do & say; other days we flounder in the muck and mire, hoping either to crawl out or be pulled out. I've been working more on my purses and a new pair of socks, but have nothing to show as of yet. I also have been working on my apron for this month's Tie One On but again, nothing to show.
So instead, I am enjoying a cup of sweet Thai coconut tea (above) ,
Letting lentil soup simmer on the stove (thanks to Moosewood Cookbook), and and browsing the web for inspiration. I am never disappointed and always amazed at the creativity of others. I think I need to start an inspiration journal like Bella Dia or like _____________ (can't find that blog ~ does that ever happen to you?).
Here is a short list of some things that are inspiring me:
Seed Pod's Still Life Project
Papeis Por Todo O Lado's embroidered slippers
Rosehip's Babushka dolls
and Shisho Mama's continuing Collage-A-Day series
