You can play this game seven times and still not win somehow?

This is the World Series with narration by Katya Iatsounova. (Katya is my cousin's wife - but even if she was a total stranger, I would still want you to hear this.)

And just when we thought she was starting to get the hang of it, they switched uniforms.

Not feeling it.

Do you ever not feel it? I'm not feeling it.
You probably haven't noticed, but I've been super lazy - not blogging about my awesomeness, no daily braggadocious Etsy listings, no creative binges and no oversharing about them.
Because - yeah. I'm not feeling it. I'm not in a creative space, I don't want to be in my workroom, not inspired, don't want to make anything. It's the strangest thing.
And then I have crushing, inappropriate guilt about it.
And then I go into a death spiral about what exactly I thought I was adding to the conversation and general creative universe in the first place. Because, you know.
And this is not about how business is bad, or nobody understands my work. I'm not just blocked or too worried about other things. I'm not frustrated, I don't have PMS. I'm not even too busy.
I don't even Want to work right now. And that's not like me.
So, here's what I'm going to do: I'm not going to worry about it (that's so not like me). I'm going to take a break (so not like me). I'm going to pay attention to some other things (because it's all about me).

Of course, it's also totally possible that I have just eaten way to much candy this week.

Around here....

Around here, it's raining and my kids are fixing their own breakfast and the chickens are singing to be let out.
I'm thinking about what I want to be when I grow up. What are you doing?

New work.

New bunting made a couple of weeks ago.... Old lace and wool and a little eco-felt. Which? is a good idea, but not nearly as nice as wool. More soon - when I take a breath and get back in the workroom.

Around here....

Around here we're having a rough week. It's autumn and the homework is ramping up (Seamus is supposed to be writing a poem right now and I'm pretty sure I can hear him playing xbox.) My newish part-time non-income-producing job is kicking my ass. The house is a disaster and BananaSaurus Rex is getting no attention.
None of that is really important though - it's just busy and mess. But we lost our gorgeous Nana on Wednesday and it's a little overwhelming. To say the least.

Around here....

I don't know about you, but around here? We're getting poached and then roasted. And possibly set on fire. The forecast says 103 degrees for today - which usually means 110.
Hello, October!
