The last few weeks I have been very restless and not at ease. I have a lot of reasons why- but most of those I cannot change right now. I have to focus on what I can change- and that is me and how I spend my time and what I watch and read and do. I want to become a better, more grounded person.  I don't think I am a bad person, but I feel ungrounded.

I started this new blog to try to find ways and recover past habits that worked for this.  I still intend on crafting, but will be journaling a lot here too.... or at least I am giving myself permission to. 

I am now no longer involved in any design teams or any challenge blogs- it was time. I was no longer enjoying them- some really nice and super talented folks and all and I have learned a lot from them and the process,  but it started to feel more like homework instead of creating to relax, so hopefully the removal of that will help free up some mojo!

It feels weird not to have any "assignments" due. I do have two classes I enrolled in online awhile back- crocheting and learning about transfer methods..  They are work at your own pace, so that is good.  Maybe I will try those soon.  

Right now I just want to actually start using what I have.  I do plan on doing the 31 days of halloween because I have a ton of halloween stuff I had to have and I need to use it.

Hoping your good mojo vibes come back soon. No fun when a hobby feels like homework!
