Inspired

As you may or may not know, I fancy myself a bit crafty.

I enjoy making things and I love having the ability to shake up old things and turn them into something new.

A couple of weeks ago, I painted this little guy:

On one hand, I kind of like it. Do you see how the navy blue kind of makes a star shape? I definitely didn't even plan it that way!

I like the painting, but it's just not really "me." It's a bit intense for my tastes.

So I'm trying to be inspired by something, but I'm having zero luck.

Do you have any inspiring websites that give you ideas? I'm always on the lookout for those.

Do you ever do your own crafts or do you leave those to the professionals??

------------------------------

Have you ever had a case of the extreme Mondays? A day where just about anything and everything goes wrong?

I think this picture explains it all:

I'm actually curious to see if some of you can't see the problem in this picture.. so I'm not gonna explain it.

------------------------------

Also, I've got a post up today at Chic Critique talking about some storage solutions for bath and body products and accessories. If you have any solutions of your own, I'd love to hear them!!

Awww, I hate when my sunglasses break! I recently got Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts and so I'm planning to tackle some projects from there soon. I'm not very crafty but I hope to become so!
