I was really hoping that my nesting phase would bring me lots of motivation to clean and organize everything. Instead it has upped my creative energy and made me think of a million projects to start, none of which include cleaning or organizing.
For quite a while now I have considered making Griffin's mobile. I had looked for one I liked in stores but couldn't find anything to my liking. I had seen a few on Etsy, but they weren't exactly what I had in mind and the ones that I almost liked were quite pricey. Browsing on Etsy also gave me a few ideas and slowly I told myself that I could make one. Now, I have a knack for polymer clay but not for needles and thread. A few months ago my Mother-in-law taught me how to sew and use my sewing machine, but I still categorized myself less than a beginner.
One night I had an itch to go get the supplies to make a mobile and headed to Hobby Lobby. I grabbed some felt and embroidery floss and headed home to see what I could whip up. I drew and drew until I had a pattern that worked for a little owl.
Still on my list of to-do's is painting a mural near the crib, yet another thing I've never tackled. These crazy hormones are doing a number on me. I've gone back and forth on doing this mural, but right now I'm on board. If I don't do it soon I probably will be talking myself out of it again.
I am starting to think that cleaning the house would have an easier task.
