Monday's Muse

So what is inspiring me these days? I always like to join with to discuss this very question. In her blog, Heather says, "one of the biggest lessons I’m trying to learn is that just because I don’t have all the time in the world, doesn’t mean I don’t have time to do something. If I have 10 minutes, I can do 10 minutes worth of something creative." Sound familiar? I am always complaining here about my lack of time, the fact that I hate creating without long stretches of time but I think I have embraced the 10 minute dilemma. My fabric cuffs were the start of this and now I have been having fun creating t-shirt shrugs/vests with some of my left over scrap pieces. After cutting the pieces it practically takes 45 minuters to an hour to complete. they are great little shoulder toppers or add a sense of color to a black ensemble. Here are some pics of one I made. I need these short-on-time projects to help me feel productive in between the larger ones.
Heather also recommends looking at I LOVED browsing around this site. I totally recommend it if you are creative and are short on time.


  1. Let me know if you have figured out the 10 min. versus long stretches of time dilemma. That tee shirt shrug is so cute! what a great idea.

  2. It's easy to procrastinate because we think we'll have time later isn't it? Those shrugs are great (as usual, all your stuff is so cute!) It was wonderful to see you again at Monday's Muse!
