Enough with the crappy rain/mist/clouds already! I feel like it has been gloomy for months now. And it's seriously affecting my mood. I just can't seem to snap out of it! I have become very complacent and just.....blah. I know deep down if I were to cry out to my Savior that He would pull me out, but the vicious circle has yet to be broken. Most tangible symptom? I have not been able to get my house under control since I got home on Saturday. Each day the mess just gets worse and has now become so overwhelming I just want to crawl under a rock. *sigh* It is so frustrating when you know you need to get your act together, but you just can't get motivated.

One reason the mess has multiplied is I got to sewing. When I'm creating I try and get it done as fast as I can so that the mess won't hang around. BOY do I know how to make a mess with supplies! Add a 15 month old with no concept of "put away" and you have a recipe for a disaster. So here are some of the things that have sucked away my time, energy, and sense of order:

(Luke's new diaper bag and diaper pouch- Momma's taking back the pretty blue paisley one!)

(baby shower gift for Sunday- monogramed hooded towel, monogramed pocketed bag, paci holder, and two burp cloths, all fabric is matching)
As I'm making things, I get the deep satisfaction of actually enjoying what I'm doing. It must be the same feeling that people who LOVE their job feel. Not that I don't whole-heartedly love being home with my baby. This is just different. I've got a few other ideas in my head of things I want to make, so be on the look out in the next few weeks. I'm also toying with the idea of doing Luke's room over in vintage cowboy (hence his new bag). I haven't found a comforter that I just love, so it's entered my mind to maybe-just maybe-make a quilt of vintage cowboy and bandanna and denim. Maybe. Renee? Are you out there? If I decide to do it your number will probably be on speed dial. My only problem is that Pottery Barn Kids make such darn cute things that I'm being indecisive about what I want!
