so can you tell my hubby is out of town again
and I have been staying up way to late?!?!
I have been feeling this super strong urge to create something
crazy strong urge
I just got this book from the library
and I have been drawn to the craft stores for weeks
but like Megan says, my perfectionism is keeping me from
taking that first step
actually making something {and it is a bit busy with a toddler in the house}
so...I change my blog
what do you think?
I think I might like this look a bit better
then the one I had just yesterday

do you ever feel the urge to just create?
what have you created lately?
enjoy the day,


  1. Love the new blog look. A lot! :)

    I always tell my mom, I have the need/urge to create often, but I just can't put my finger on what I want to make. I will go buy something crafty on a whim, then get tired of it. Photography and cooking keep me busy, so I guess I'm creating, in a way.

    I did spray paint a pumpkin this week! lol! :) Is that creative?! haha.

    have a GREAT weekend.

  2. ack! Where have i been? I've missed so many of your posts. How did that happen??!

    Love your new blog template. Very cute. One of these days I'll do something with mine. I just have no idea how.

    And, "CREATE?" umm...yes! I am so feeling the creative pull. My problem is it doesn't pull me in ONE direction. I have no focus. There isn't one thing that pulls me in and keeps my attention constantly. That's what I'm missing, and wish I had so I could DO something with my creativity. Am I making sense?

    Loving all your photo collages. The one of all the wildflowers is gorgeous and love the backs of the girls going through the maze. What a fun weekend!

  3. I think for me part of it is the need to see something that is completely finished! I love the new look. . .good job!

    I'm always looking for stuff to do when David is gone, too.

  4. Oh, I can so relate to that urge to create. I don't feel like I have the time to do much creating these days. So, my blog has been my outlet. There for awhile I was constantly tinkering with the layout, the header, etc.

    Anyway, I love what you have done. It looks amazing.

  5. Cute new layout Cindy...but I miss your big beautiful pictures in the header!
    I have always had the need to create and make stuff. Now that I am reading blogs....that need is even greater and drives me crazy!! I don't have the time or the money to sit around crafting all day!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Wow. Wish I had a few creative bones in my body. I'd update the blog, maybe decorate for Halloween.
    So uncreative.

  7. Looks great Cindi, they all have! LOL.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Your blog looks great! I have no idea how to do this. I can only use picasa and what I'm given on the standard templet. Yes, I do feel the urge to create, but at a VERY basic level :) Have a great weekend.

  9. I think it looks great - but how the heck did you DO it?!?! I think I could get lost for hours playing around with different templates ... but these aren't even from blogger, right? Sooooo .. you gonna tell us HOW?! Tutorial, please!

  10. Love the new look, and LOVE your blog...your girls are precious.

    Barb :)

  11. Cindy,
    I love your new header! And yes, every once in a while (like once a year) I get the urge to create. In January I made a simple curtain for my mini bathroom off the kitchen. That was JANUARY!!! So I guess I don't get creative that often. Enjoy your weekend, tara
