Do you ever get bitten by the random inspiration bug? The kind where all of the sudden you decide, That's IT! I'm going to [insert whatever crazy scheme of the moment here]. This is usually followed by an eye roll from The Husband. I can't be alone in this.
Sometimes I decide I'm going to exercise. Nope, never happens. I don't really like to sweat.
For a short time I decided I was going to decorate our house nicely. I'm subscribed to a handful of home decor blogs, but all they do is reinforce the truth that I have no eye for decor.
Or, it could be a new crafty project. Like, this one time I decided I was going to try my hand at soap making. I have a few things to do this, but I haven't gotten the second wind of inspiration that will actually motivate me to get started on this project.
Most recently I settled on the new hobbies of sewing and crocheting. I just bought a new (to me) sewing machine. I had one, but it didn't work anymore even after it was tinkered with. It was older than me, for sure, so it was time for an upgrade. Hopefully I will not let this fall by the wayside. I don't think I'll ever hear the end of it from The Husband if I do.
I recently taught myself to crochet. So that's kind of going somewhere. Just a few basic stitches and I'm currently working on a scarf. I'm kinda getting bored with that project though so I hope my skills improve soon so that I can move on to something more fun. Like a hat for Jack or a cool pair of mittens. I have dreams.
I think the problem is that I just want to *BE* crafty. I don't want to have to learn or hone skills or deal with any sort of learning curve. I just want to sit down at a sewing machine and sew really cool things or pick up a crochet hook and make a really cool hat.
Clearly it's focus that I lack, not inspiration.
