Blessings everyone, I been so busy these last few days. I don't know whether I am coming or going. Before I forget I want to remind everyone that the give away deadlines ends tomorrow at 12am eastern time. I will be drawing a name on my Birthday, January 15th. Good luck to all who have participated.

Lately, I have been working on some new ideas for my dolls and trying to make better use of my work space. Who knew one person needed so much stuff in making dolls. I never seem to have enough fabric, sometimes I have fear of going into a fabric store knowing the damage I can cause in there. Once I can remember going into JoAnne fabrics with my 50 percent off coupon only to grab a bolt of white muslin, well by the time I left there after spending 220.00 bucks geeze where is the control. Joyce went along with me and ummm well let's just say she wasn't much help. Right now I am suffering from a creative block, I have all these ideas just floating around but for the life of me I can't seem to get them to surface. looking at stacks of cloth and have visions of what I would love to see done with it. How do I over come this? Where is the light at the end of my creative tunnel? I see so many of you that always have your creative juices flowing like wild fires! How do you keep those juices going? What motivates and inspires your creativity? Hey can I get some here lol. Until Later

Peace and Blessings

  1. Hi Cheryl,

    I would give anything to have a craft room like you have...problem is...I'm not the most crafty person in the world! I so admire you for being creative, even if you are having a bit of a block right now! I trust that it will be a thing of the past in no time, at all!

    Hope you have a blessed day!

  2. How fun about the fabric! I'm the same way, I get in that store and could just grab everything I see. I love fabric, even if I don't always know what to do with it.

    I have blank spots in my creative thinking. Usually that is when I head down to the basement and drag up a bin of magazines. I will flip through them until I can feel the creativity coming back. And other times the ideas are there but not the motivation. It always comes back eventually. :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by. Love your blog. One day when you are not busy, maybe you could do an interview.

  4. hi cheryl,

    i find a lot of inspiration in magazines, especially publications by better homes and gardens, like creative home or 100 ideas for $100 or less. usually 10% off at home depot (no coupon to remember!)

    relax. ideas will come.


  5. Hi Cheryl,

    Did you receive my email--if not, thank you so much for the award.

    You have a great work space, love the pretty box containers. I have my things everywhere, no real home for them

    When I have a block I just walk away for a day or two and clear my head. When I go back to the the job or craft, I can work thru my block.

    Thanks again,


  6. Cheryl just stopped by to wish you a Very Happy Birthday! Stay sane and enjoy your day!
