focus, focus, focus

Maybe if I say the word three times I'll actually have an ounce of it. I don't know why, but I have such a hard time focussing on anything for long periods of time. I've always been that way and I hate it. It's pretty much that way with EVERYTHING!!! UGH. I have so many unfinished projects and so many that I haven't even started yet for that matter, lol. I can't even focus on my home long enough to get it totally clean (I also hate cleaning so that doesn't help). It's been really bothering me lately. I thrive on feeling inspired and feeling creative and lately I haven't been working on anything or even known what my next creative venture will be. I think that's also what's been bumming me out. All things that can be fixed of course. I really need to start making lists so that I can stay focussed on what I need and want to get done. Then I need to actually check the list daily and work on it. Just thinking out loud here aren't I, lol.

Okay, well let me tell you about the things that aren't bumming me out and really inspiring me lately. I really want to be great at photography and actually shoot in manual mode (eek! I said that out loud). I get to go to Emilie's workshop on the 30th (the day after I actually TURN 30) which I'm stoked about (not stoked about turning 30), but until then I've been having so much fun just playing around.

This one isn't really in focus, but I love that little tongue that's always out. She also rarely stops moving:)

Here are also some things that really get my creative juices flowing!!! I just ordered this pattern:

I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get this for my birthday:

I'm seriously drooling:

There are just no words to express the cuteness

The sewing machine it going to quickly make it's way to the dining room table today I think. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. xoxo until next time.

Tiff- I think I have a much worse problem. I'm the creative type, but after I have a baby- it takes me FOREVER to even get back any drive to be creative! It's been over a year and I still feel tired just looking at all of your cute projects! I admire you! And I am IN LOVE with that dress pattern you bought! WOW!
