Aidan enjoyed reading all of your comments on his post last night. He was all set to reply to them, but it was late and I was all set for him to go the heck to bed already and sent him upstairs before he could have his say.
Oops. Mean Mom Alert. 😉
I enjoyed letting him have a go at being a guest blogger, but despite what he may have said, his role is not going to expand beyond “guest” any time soon. He’s got plenty of other stuff to keep him busy anyway, and unless he plans on getting all crafty, he wouldn’t fit in here particularly well all that often.
Speaking of getting all crafty, I’m sorry I haven’t been particularly prolific in that department lately. I’ve had some ongoing in-front-of-the-tv-at-night knitting projects around, but that’s about it. I feel like I’ve been busy, but I have little to show for it.
I’ve been wondering what, exactly, I have been doing with my time lately, and why, exactly, I’m not making much of anything. I don’t have a satisfying answer to the first question, but I’m pretty sure the second answer can be found under the piles of creative clutter in my dining room (aka my “studio”).
So here I am again, craving balance. Looking to have a little bit of everything in most of my days – some housework, some business, some creativity, some family time.
Last night I made a small dent in some of the housework, which should enable me to make a dent in my creative goals. If it looks like I just shoved everything over, you’re half right. It was a combination of putting/throwing some things away, and shoving everything else over. Still plenty to do in this room, but at least I have a small square I can work in for a while.
I am thinking: Shawl Pins. (And later, I’d love to work on that quilt I started making last October and never finished.)
If all goes according to plan, I’ll be back tomorrow with pretty things to show you. And maybe a giveaway. Would you be interested, perhaps, in a little handmade goodie from me?
