remember when?

angela here.
from my new cozy little home office.
monday-wednesday- friday.

i know, you are thinking - but it is THURSDAY.

i took the home office route today as well due to the fact....

i am sick.
first time in 3 years.
just a plain cold of sorts.
nothing to alarming.
but feeling like a wet noodle just the same.

wet noodles have a hard time being inspired.
just sayin'

i feel as though i should take an entire day and just read back on my blog. 
back in the day i had some pretty fun stuff to say.
i wanna do that again.
my friend, sabrina reminded me of the inspiration i used to send out way back when.
made me think.

i think i let go of writing.
it was hard to be ON all the time.
however, now i am thinking - you don't really want me to be ON - just IN the game
regardless of how i am feeling. 
i want that too.

i need to get back to that.

do you ever just get to this point in life that you WANT to feel inspired from the bottom of your heart? 
but you just don't FEEL it.
you WANT to just have it happen without having to work so stinkin' hard for that "feeling".

i think the only way we can accomplish this is by making small changes.
whether it is going back to the way we used to do something....
or we move forward to a new way of doing something.
each change pushes us through the little dingy spot we are in...and makes way for new.
life wouldn't be life without a little dinginess.
we all have it.
it is ok.

i am looking at all the materials i have around me to CREATE something.
that would be different, huh?
if THIS CHICK actually made some STUFF!!!
no promises.
just saying it would be different.
it would be a fun change!

i haven't done that for SO VERY LONG.
i need to. 
my heart says so.

looking at my sick little self, i would say my SOUL needs some creativity.
whether it be creating through my writing.  or even an art piece or two.

check me out. 
how depressing is that?
give me a stamp or something!

at any rate. 
create a small little change today if you are feeling a little dingy.
i am gonna do that.
i'll let you know what happens!

i just found this. 
first thing i clicked on. - don't you LOVE how that happens?
just like the days when i USED to go out to find things to post on this lovely little blog of mine.

personally...i love this.
read on.

Your body is free but your heart is in prison. 
To release your heart, you simply reverse the process which locked it up. 
First you begin to listen for messages from your heart—messages you may have been ignoring since childhood. Next you must take the daring, risky step of expressing your heart in the outside world. . . .
As you learn to live by heart, every choice you make will become another way of telling your story. . . .
It is the way you were meant to exist. 
If you stop to listen, you’ll realize that your heart has been telling you so all along.
Martha Beck in "Finding Your Own North Star"

I hope you start to feel better soon. Drink lots of fluids, take some pain relievers (tylenol, aleve) and REST! It's post CHA-stress response sickness, don't you think?

My sister and I are cropping with Unity at the scrapfest crop. Will you be there? Hope so!

I can teach you to knit or crochet's very soothing and let's the mind think about other creative things!

You are killing me with the sales....but I must resist. I just purchased NEW Unity from 2 Peas, planning on a couple DT submissions attempts....

And, my new Ippity is due to arrive today...happiness!

Hope you get to feeling better! Creating will help. I'm going to my LSS for a 2 day crop - my soul needs to create as well. Happy creating! Glad you have a Unity office at home.

hope you get to feeling better soon. Nothing worse than being sick during the summer. How long is the Buy One Get One sale going to last? My BF is on vacation and I know she would love to get in on this deal

Any chance of a mini 'Christmas in July' sale this weekend. I have had my eye on the Christmas category in the shop as well as Donna Downey's Advet Calendar. I need to get started on my cards soon or they will never get done:)
