my creative space


i'll be popping in and out of this space today ~ hubby went in to have his appendix out last night! it was very strange, and reassuring, to get a call at 11.30pm from the surgeon saying everything is ok and he'll be in until friday . . .

this week has been a blur of getting back into the routine of school ~ kind of a shock to the system after having so much time to work over the 2 week school break. i need to re~adjust to the summer schedule, cricket starts this weekend {actually maybe next weekend} . . . a very tricky process, to keep the creativity going but also adjust my expectations and realise that a lot of ideas will need to be on hold for a while. seems pretty simple when i write it here ~ but to my brain that has been in creative overdrive, it takes a while to get the hang!

the spoonflower book arrived yesterday ~ i may slowly start to work on some fabric~making ideas :)

hope you are having a lovely time in your creative space today. pop over to kirsty's to play along and see more spaces.

I know exactly what you mean Belinda! I always need a settling in period when things change (like school hols etc). Good luck with finding your groove again :) Kx

I can also understand. My groove is regularly being interupted, and it's heart breaking sometimes when your brain kicks into that overdrive mode - it's hard work, as your energy gets sidetracked to deal with it. All the very very best with moving through this period. I know you'll get your mojo back soon!

Change of routine always mucks me about when the kids are at home from hols - little time for personal creativity....
Hope you hubby recovers well.

It's a real challenge when the creative brain is moving faster than the time available. Good luck getting into routine!

OH i haven't enjoyed the time i have been able to craft these school holidays with 2 trips to Sydney (i'm here now) & swapping the 4 children around into different rooms, it's been massive!!
Good luck to your husband, mine would want me there holding his hand, sitting outside the surgery, yes, with 4 children, he's a big brave soldier of course, but very precious. Wish him well, oh no, you'll have to wait on him, your wounded bear with a sore toe. Hang in there, love Posie

I had a similar experience with my husband in hospital for almost a month. It was upsetting, and tiring and frustrating ... but make sure you get some rest and he'll be home soon. Have a great weekend.

Adjusting is so weird, and I know what you mean about time - most of my ideas never see the light of day. I sometimes wonder what would happen if I had the time to create all of them, and not just 10% of them? ha ha. I keep getting emails from people to try spoonflower, but haven't gone there yet. Still thinking screenprinting, but please let us know how toy find it. I've asked a few people about colourfastness, but no one has an answer on that one. LOL. Have fun, xo K

inaluxe said...

I must be blind, just saw the part about the appendix operation. Hope your husband is feeling much better... hospital is not much fun, but yyyyeeeeeah! it's always great to have the problem fixed, and, getting home again. :) Glad it all went well. have a lovely wekeend (all of you:)) hugsss xoxo K
