I'm Bored

And sort of overwhelmed. Have you ever felt the need to do something artsy, but just can figure out what?? That's how I am today. I spent so much time making those roses, and have gotten no interest in them at all. Now, we all know the online marketplace is huge, but it's hard when you find you really love something. I have a bunch more, just waiting to be photographed and uploaded- including a flower girl's barrette and a groom's boutonniere.

Anyway, I've been wanting to paint too. I think I should look into a class. It might give me more confidence to get started. I love certain colors and textures. This is a favorite, but I can't do this over and over...

I bought these beauties. Some I like, some I don't. They came in a lot, so I had to get all of them. Any ideas? Oh, I'm thinking of painting them all white. Would that be bad? Who cares, they're mine, right??
What are you up to these days? Tell me, tell me. I need inspiration.

hugs- Lee

Hang in there. First, once people find your flowers, they will want them.

Yes, I've been in your shoes, am right now. I'm going to join in a 10 projects in 10 days blog challenge and also do a "bucket list" type of deal. I'm so tired of being hampered by medical problems (latest is knee surgery) at my somewhat young age of 41.

So, I'm going to JUST DO IT!

Just do what you love and you can't go wrong. Your color choices are great and well placed. You are very creative and all you need to do is start...If you don't like how it comes out start a new one..try and work fast and don't over think things. Art is fun and flowing. Spill paint,drip paint, throw paint. Get your hands dirty...Have fun. Hugs, Diane

Your flowers are beautiful and If I was not a stay at home MOM I would buy all them! LOL


I hope you are not bored to much!

Oh Lee, I wish I could offer you some inspiration, but I'm just not crafty or artistic....but I think if you just start something, anything, it will light the fire of your imagination. And I think those heads would be perfect if they were all white.

I can't believe there isn't interest in your flowers, they are so great....
maybe you could sell tutorials, instructions or a video link or something, for ladies wanting to create more than buy? I don't know, it's just a thought..

when I need inspiration I get on blogs or pull out my Somersets...and so basically I come to you! Hang in there, it will come!!
