Lost my Jingle

Recently my sister and I went to a local garden centers Holiday Open House. What a great time we had! We each made our own wreath, decorated it with ribbons and other accents and then brought them home to hang. There was food and just loads of good cheer. Next week we are going to the culinary center for a cookie exchange. Love these festive outings!

I'm looking forward to a new year and having some time to regroup and to enjoy some unstructured time to "play". Nothing is more deadly then having to do something rather than wanting to do something. At least for me. I have been in the "have to do it" mode and really have felt the drag of it. I'm looking for something fresh and invigorating!

I love making beads and jewelry but feel I have lost my "jingle" as of late. It's kind of a creative lull I guess. I see sooooo many jewelers out there with terrific things and I also see lots of the same.......ho, hum stuff too. I feel that I must go into a mini winter hibernation to hopefully immerge with new ways of seeing. Sounds gloomy right? Hope not.....its just a little creative bordem that has set in.

A little holiday shopping, getting my nails done and then maybe a little baking. I've been loving my Nook and have read plenty of great books with it so far. Tonight I'll wrap gifts and work on some knitting. I've been sick for the last few days and am resting lots in between those things I "have to" do.

Sounds like you have had a good holiday season so far, Linda! I have a Nook, too, now. I am really enjoying it! Merry Christmas!

Your wreath making and cookie exchanges sound fun! Our town which has nothing like this. Tha's one of the disadvantages of living in a small town.

All year long I've felt that most of the things I've accomplished are things that HAD to be done, rather than things I wanted to do. I'm hoping the new year will be different. Of course, I need to learn to say 'no'.

Enjoy your holidays!

Your cooment regarding "having to so dsomething" as opposed to "wanting to do something" is SO true.
Keep up the great work on your blog.
