The Creative Itch

While waiting on my doctor to decide to treat me so that I can feel up to writing, I've decided it's time for a self-sanctioned pause. Spring is on its way and I've set aside a few projects. Small things, really, but fun and creative.

1. Make homemade laundry detergent
2. Make homemade Rosemary Mint fabric softener
3. Do something creative with our cobalt bottles
4. Make floating candle jars for the front porch
5. Fill suet feeder with bits of yarn for birds' nesting needs
6. Make homemade moisturizer
7. Make "fire fly" jars
8. Make hanging candle/plant jars for the front porch

The largest project, which isn't pictured, is to re-organize the kitchen's upper cabinets, paint the back wall, remove the doors, then display our cool dishes, mugs, bowls, teas, glasses, etc.

Since I joined Pinterest I've developed a creative itch. People are so inventive and resourceful--I'm inspired every day by something in there.

That's it, really. Nothing about writing this time.


  1. Your list is so long, I feel exhausted from reading it!

    I think you don't need to apologize for comment moderation. So much better than jumping through the hoops of Bloggers newest word verification torture!

  2. Aren't the new capchas awful?? I really hate them and don't want to my readers through all that.

  3. I suppose I will find out one day what a fire fly jar is.

  4. See the little picture in the center of the bottom row? A fire fly jar is just a glass jar with dots painted on the inside with pale blue and green glow-in-the-dark paint. You charge it under a lamp, or in the sun, then at night it glows like a jar full of fire flies. Thought they would be cool on the front porch when we have a party.
