Sometimes I have so many ideas swimming around in my head that it overwhelms me.
That's when I stop creating.
It all seems like too much to handle.
So I do nothing.
I hate it when that happens, don't you?
A good friend reminded me that when you feel that way,
it's good to take small bites.
Doing a little bit every day, gets you where you want to go,
whether it's organizing a disastrous room,
saving for a trip,
getting out of debt,
planning a party,
or decorating your front door for Halloween.
Lame, I know . . .
at the throught of adorning the porch
But I was.
So, I took small bites,
and in three weeks time,
I got there.
Week 1: I found inspiration on Pinterest.
Week 2: I made a wreath.
Week 3: I re-planted my urns.
The last step was making bunting to hang from the rafters.
I made a simple fabric banner,
gathered strips of crepe paper on my sewing machine,
and cut a length of pom pom fringe.
The whole thing took about two hours.
So easy a 9 year old could do it.
Thanks for the inspiration Pinterest . . . and Christine.
You got me off the couch -- creating.
P.S. I have leftover fabric for the Halloween flag bunting you see here. If you want a kit, contact me. I have four left. The cost is $12.00 including shipping. It includes fabric, bias tape, and fusible adhesive so you don't have to sew. You can make this if you have an iron and a pair of scissors.
***Now it's your turn. What have you been creating?
