funky


Ned woke up with this crazy hair yesterday and I thought it was a good representation of how I've been feeling for the last two weeks or so - funky. And not funky crazy, but funky like in a funk funky. I've hardly done any crafting or sewing at all in the past two weeks. I've had that bag cut out for a week and a half that I keep promising to show, but I haven't sewn a stitch on it. I have done lots of cleaning (notice the sewing room floor in the picture above is vacuumed.) and sorting and organizing. But, I'm still feeling a little off and it doesn't seem to be just a passing feeling. I've got a lot of ideas about why I'm feeling this way - being 31 (I know it's not that old, but it sure is feeling like it lately), it's the middle of winter and way too cold (Peter keeps saying, "I too cold, I too cold," when we are outside.), and I'm feeling the need for a little more direction and focus in my life, but I'm not sure where I want to go. Oh, I know this is all very vague and I'm probably being confusing more than anything, but I just needed to get this off my chest. Maybe if I just admit it, I'll be able to work through it and move on. Hmmm...I feel a new crafting project coming on - something to help me get out of this funk!

That funk is going around. I don't think it's just you, so know you are not alone! How 'bout we get on that girls afternoon!!!
I think I'm slowly coming out of mine finally! It's been months for me.
At least you're being productive in the cleaning department. Yay for that!!!
Call me if you want to talk. I'm just about always here!

Yea, it is totally going around. Something about January + winter + post Christmas let down.

Jack has been having terrible hair lately. I cannot make it lie down for the life of me. LOL

I certainly have times when I'm very motivated.... and times when I'm very not. Don't be stressed about it. That creative mojo will come back : )

It's definitely the winter blues time. I know you'll find your way out of your funk soon.

Feelin' funky here too. Spring will be here soon, right?

I hope one day soon you'll be able to reflect on this post and be glad the funk is over!
It catches us all sometimes.

It's the Jan/Feb funk. I get it every year. I have loads of projects waiting in the wings and I just can't work up a care. It'll go away soon!
