vivi had a little lamb...




♥Do you ever just get obsessed with your ideas to make something? Do you wake up in the night with a new idea, or planning out what kind of materials you might use on something?
♥Do you dream you are working on a project? (thanks susan I forgot that one!)
♥Do your ideas get "backed up" when other new ideas pop up? And then do you go nuts trying to figure out which to do first?
♥Do you go to work and find yourself staring off into space while you make a mental list of what you need to buy at joanns, or michaels.. or where ever you get your supplies, and try to figure out how you can escape from work to go get the stuff?
♥Do you put aside housework,laundry, cooking.. and other necessary things so you can work on a project that just has to get released from your brain???
♥When you look at other peoples creations, do you sometimes get so filled with inspiration do you think you might burst??
♥Would you sometimes rather stay home and create something then go out to eat or to the movies.. or shopping.. or anything else?
♥Do you ever get so wrapped up in creating something that you forget to eat!? (Ha! that doesnt happen to me.. I eat while I work!!.. just thought it would be funny to throw that one in.. plus I do know that some of you little skinny minnies probably do forget to eat while your in a creative frenzy!! I wish I would forget to eat!)
♥Will you drive an hour just to get one little thing you need like the right color floss, or just the right piece of paper, embellishment or fabric?
♥Does your family ever feel a little neglected because of your art, ummm... and computer time??

♥yup.. this is my life girls.. but I wouldnt change a thing! well maybe to have a bigger craft room and more supplies.. and for joanns and micheals to be closer than an hour away!!!


Today... its laundry, cleaning, clothing inventory for florida, cooking.. and a very quick trip to walmart for a sewing machine light bulb! (do you think they have them there?
Have a sweet day!

You have described me also. I do actually forget to eat and I'm no Skinny Minnie. You did leave out one thing...I even dream of what I have been working on. I work beading and painting and drawing into my dreams. Hey, it's what we do.

Go on now, get up from that table and get your stuff ready. Have a great trip!

Awww- that is the sweetest lamb ever! I love your needle fleting goodies! I've got that book that you blogged about a ways ago (Sweet Needle Felting or something like that), and I haven't had the chance to sit down and look it over and start! I meant to ask- where do you get your wool rovings? Any recommendations? Your lamb is so cute- it's inspiring ME to read the book and start needle felting. BUT I've got swap projects on my hands first! I don't dare put off *winks*
Hugs and don't forget to eat :O)

ok, I would have to answer "yes" to all of them except "do you forget to eat" ...that one, NO! I'm always thinking of eating as you know! Ha!
I must get my Florida inventory going as well...have a good rest of the weekend!

Yesssss to many of your questions! We crafty folks can get distracted. Viv I love your little animals, do you sell them?

Kai said...

Holy COW, Viv! You just described ME to a tee! Even the forgetting to EAT part! YES, I am definitely a bonafide ROUND person, but when I'm in a creating frenzy, THAT is my food! (I make up for it later, of course! LOL!) And OOOOOOOH! That lambie-pie is WAY too cute. YOur felting ROCKS!

Hi Viv...thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. Today has been a tough day. Our kitty took a turn for the worse last night, and we had to let her go today. She went peacefully with the help of our wonderful vet, and we were all there for her. My oldest son is 25 and had a tough time. They were best pals. I know that she finally feels better, but we all feel so sad. One day at a time I guess. XXOO

You make the sweetest things! I'm getting out my Easter things!

Fran said...

Love your little lamb. How sweet it is.
O!My! you just described me. I wake up out of a sleep with a doll demanding to get out. I keep a pad and pencil on my night stand so I can write it down. Then I lay there thinking about it, YES sometimes I get up and go work on the doll or what ever else is bugging me to create it. :-) I suppose our art really wants to get out of our heads. When there's seveal wanting out at once....O!MY!
Have a wonderful trip.
Hugs
Fran

Holly Cox said...

Gosh that sounds like me...! Ever since I got into make my little creations I spend nights lying there thinking and a new idea will spring into my head. A new purchase will spark a whole new idea thats so complex at first I'm not sure how to do it at the moment some new ephemera pieces have given me hundreds of Christmas Ideas.
