A Little Motivation...

Hi Everyone.

Lately I've been feeling a little unmotivated, uninspired and uncreative, arggg! I tend to have these little episodes once in a while and they drive me crazy...I think it might be a hormone thing...Hee, hee, hee. Thankfully though, I think it seems to be passing because finally yesterday I got a little motivated.

A couple of weeks ago I bought this wall decal at The Dollar Tree store, but hadn't put it up yet. (Sorry in advance about the next two dinning room is always so hard to photograph.)

I love wall decals! So easy to put up and it was only a dollar!

Hmmm, now that I think about it, I've been wanting to paint this framed mirror white, which by the way I got for 50 cents at a grage sale...Sweet! I've also wanted put up some white shutters on each side of it that I picked up at a thrift store ages ago.

Wait a minute...No...Yes...Maybe...Yes, I think it's a definite yes. I think my motivation and inspiration are coming back...Yay!!! Can't wait to get started on this project, well any project for that matter. Hee, hee, hee.

Wishing everyone a wonderful, inspiring and creative new week.


Hugs and Kisses,

I completely understand. To tell you the truth, I've been feeling the same way. It's probably hormones for me too! LOL!

Your decal looks great! I'll be waiting to see the mirror and shutters. Now get motivated! :)

Yay glad motivation is coming back! Love your dining room! Can't help but notice your red wall! I have been thinking about adding one red accent wall in lv room. Do you remember what color that is? I've done red before but for some reason I'm having trouble with doing it in this house. Thanks for any input. Traci

What a super little edition to your dining room for $1.00! It looks great & your dining room looks so pretty.

G'day Ana ~ Everything looks wonderful! I love that decal & particularly the color. Slumps come, slumps go ... motivation peeks around corners.

The heart wreath is so pretty, Ana. I love your dining room.

Have a beautiful week ~

It is looking wonderful Ana!!

I am glad to hear your motivation has finished its holiday, but it is always good to have a little break and I can't wait to see your creations.

Have a fun week filled to the top with creativeness my friend. xxx

So glad to hear the cloud has finally lifted, my cloud is right around the corner, I can feel it:o(
I had put up the "WELCOME" wall decal at the old place and left it behind when I moved. It was in the perfect spot to greet you as you walked in the door and I thought the new tenant would enjoy it as his neighbor stomped around upstairs and played his loud rap music. Glad I'm out of there, can't wait to hear what happens!

Love you much,

Hi Ana!

Just stopping by to check in! I know about the motivation...lately I've had a little TOO MUCH! I am in the middle of so many projects-none of them are getting close to being finished.

Right now, everything is on the back burner--I'm in AR bonding with my new granddaughter and it may be awhile before I get back to project motivation!

I love those decals! I have several of them awaiting that perfect spot--looks like you've found one for yours.

I can't wait to see what you do next. Thanks for sharing with us!

My blog isn't nearly as beautiful as yours or the rest of my favorite blogs I read but I enjoy journaling on it. I too, lose inspiration. I was laid off of work in March 2010 and had so much time on my hands and that is when I found "blogs"... and so I started my own. However, now, I am still seeking employment... and in a sort-of-a funky funk about life. I love coming to your blog and other blogs and being able to escape from my own life, learn about others and their lives and also learn from their tips and crafts. Thank you for brightening my day with your blog Ana, you are so cute and precious. Blessing to you.

Hi, Ana,
Let me tell you, girlfriend, you have more creativity in your little finger than I have in my whole body. I didn't realize you could find these cute decals at the dollar store. I am going to have to pay a visit and see what the stores here have. I think your decal is perfect above that pretty mirror. And, whatever you decide to do with your mirror, I know it will look fantastic. Love that little heart wreath. I love hearts, too. Have a great week, Ana. Love you! Vicki

I totally understand what you are going through! I am having the same problem lately! I have seen those wall decals at the dollar store and wondered how well they worked. Looks great!

Hi Ana,
I feel like that in the winter, the time when I should be getting lots done:-) A dollar, what a great find!! The mirror and wreath look beautiful:-)
I found the mercury heart years ago at a boutique, sorry that is no help to you.
