The urge to create...

I'm not sure if it's my current obsession with Pinterest, or the utter lack of inspiration I get via my every-day, but I'm starting to feel the need to create something "arty". Strikes me every once in awhile and I'm feeling the itch.

Here are a couple some of the things I think I could do in a reasonable amount of time with a minimal budget and very little destruction to my surroundings. I think I might actually use them, as well.

1. Place a stencil over a coloured shirt.
2. Spray with bleach.

1. Make a collage.
2. Stencil on top.
3. Paint white around the stencil.

We'll see. Thinking about it is easy. Doing it is a whole other department of effort, and I'm not sure if it's open for business yet. :)

*whine alert*

Having one of those months where everything is going wrong. Relationships I thought were awesome are actually not. Losing the eye-rolling, seemingly never-ending, weight battle -- badly. Disappointment abound in a number of people who I held in high-regard for quite some time. Feeling like life is moving way too fast and I'm wasting my time working. I miss my kids and wish I could be home with them. When do see them, I'm exhausted and so are they. Trouble keeping up with all housework. And, experiencing a very, very heavy heart about everything going on in the world right now.

Probably pretty typical for a lot of people, but the aggregate is really weighing me down. Very little motivation to do anything. Except eat kettlecorn. Bags of it. Non-stop.

I'm looking forward to reading this post in a month and making fun of myself for it.

*fingers crossed*

Edit: National Post ran a Worthy 30 feature in Saturday's paper, showcasing the top 30 women in Toronto. They ask silly questions meant to give insight into personality... dinner guests, ultimate vacation, guilty pleasure, etc. I was vindicated by the first woman profiled. Her guilty pleasure? Kettlecorn. *high-fives Justine*
