Here's my sweet little Emma just a few hours after her oral surgery this morning. She looks so worn out and tired.  That's her Grandma {my Mom} who stopped with a SURPRISE SHAMROCK!!! How cool was that?

It sure did brighten up Em's morning:) My Mom is so good at that...I swear that  is why Heavenly Father put her on this earth...

Em is resting now and already getting bored [even though the Doc swears she is still so loopy on meds that she may not remember most of what she says or does today]!


I'm so hesitant to share my Word from last week...Why? bECaUse it is sooooo blah and boring and the same old same old...ho-hum.


Great word-huh? The past like 4 weeks it's been grouchy, lazy, weak and now frustrating.

Good Grief!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is my life really that boring and uneventful?

Well, I wouldn't say my life is boring...but I would say I'm spending way too much time doing boring things. It seems like I have added zero fun to my days. No creative time just for me. No time spent scrapping, creating and just being me. No cozy movies on the couch. No marathon reading sessions. Just laundry, dishes and picking up after everyone else. BLAH!!

Here is a quote that speaks to me...

"Eternally, woman spills herself away in driblets to the thirsty, seldom being allowed the time, the quiet, the peace, to let the pitcher fill up to the brim."  -Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Writer

I am creatively thirsty. I have had very little in the way of "filling my pitcher up".

This is what I'm gonna work on this week.

What fills up your "pitcher"? For me it's working on my scrap projects, blogging and just having time to read, to dream and fill up my journal.

Leave me a comment...I would love to hear what you have to say!!

**Also, don't forget to tell me what I should call my Friday Five. [see post below] You can win a few "Me and My Big Ideas" goodies!!!


  1. Soooo feeling your "frustrating" word in my own life the past few weeks. I've been feeling uninspired, and unmotivated, and just BLAH, too! I think we both hit the ground running after the 1st of the year, that we ran out of gas. But I have faith that we both will be running again . . . soon. I'm sending you positive energy, blog friend. Hang in there. This too shall pass!

  2. Oh, goodness me! I meant to also say that I hope Em is feeling better!!!! Tell her to Hang in there, too!

  3. I hope Em is feeling better soon. That was so nice of your mom to bring the Shamrock over. For me to fill my pitcher is time alone to work on my scrappy stuff or time away just with my hubby. A break from the laundry, dishes, and you know I could go on but I won't. It is those moments even if they are brief that fill me up.


I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
