Creative Block

I've been having a bit of a creative block lately.  It's not that I don't have tons of ideas floating around in my head, I just really haven't had any desire to do anything with them.  Does this happen to you?

I find a lot of inspiration from Merrick's blog and absolutely love the tutorials she shares with the world.  So when I saw that she and her sisters are doing a 6 week Pinterest Challenge, I jumped on board!  I participated in one on Facebook last year and loved it.
Sisters Share It All: Pinterest Challenge
Here are my pins that I intend to do over the next 6 weeks.  

This reminds me of a coverup in the new Victoria's Secret catalog.  A girlfriend of mine asked me to look it up and see if I could recreate it because VS wants $50 for that thing!  I'm on it.



My friend, Victoria, gave me some great chevron fabric for Christmas and I've been wanting to make myself a skirt with it.  I like this one.  I may go out on a limb and try something on my own.

I've been wanting to try yoga (again) for some time, but haven't found a dvd that I like.  This reminds me of the class I took a couple of summers ago that I loved.  I'm going to try to incorporate it into my daily workout routine as often as possible over the next 6 weeks.

I have a peplum top I bought when I went shopping a few weekends ago and I haven't worn it yet.  I also have an old shirt of my husbands that I'm wanting to attempt to turn into a peplum top.  So I'm hoping to style it and refashion the other over the course of the 6 weeks.

I was devastated this morning when I stepped on the scale and saw the number.  I have been busting my butt in the gym and running.  It's not paying off.  So, I'm going to try to focus on the positive and start charting all of my measurements so that I can see how I'm doing.  I think this will be a great motivator and accountability tool for me.

  1. I'm so envious of women who know how to sew. Can't wait to see your creations! And that stinks that your work in the gym doesn't seem to be paying off. Maybe you're building muscle (which weighs more) and losing fat so the scale still looks the same?)

  2. It's so cool that you can make your own clothes, and that they turn out looking awesome! Look forward to reading about your creations.

    Think you might have been nominated already, but I'm going to nominate you for the Leibster Award! (http://iamanrd.wordpress.com/2013/02/23/leibster-award/) You do a great job with your blog.

  3. That yellow skirt is absolutely DARLING.

    So happy you're playing along!
