This past week, I spilled the beans. Meaning, I wrote a personal life update kinda post explaining my absense from most things DIY this summer.
And I secretly hope that by clearing the air, I can get back to it again! But if today is any example, no, not yet. LOL
I had big hopes this week but I was plenty busy, just not with projects. When did my head become a small one room compartment that can only handle one thing at a time? Where’s my pro multitasker switch? Maybe I need an electrician… 😉
Ah well. If you’d like to know more about what I’m even talking about, I invite you to THIS POST which explains a lot… and even perhaps more than you want to know. And may even answer a few of your own questions.
So anyway, now that you know I made nothing but at least wrote something, (yay to small wins!) let’s now peek at some project features from last week’s party that were made by these wonderful creatives.
Thanks for the inspiration boost! I need it.

Donna I am honored that you featured my paper bag wreath as well as my sunflowers! Thanks so much, have a wonderful day!
oh, my friend…. i hear you about the ‘single-minded’ thing!
over a decade ago, i was running two multi-faceted businesses full time. i could multitask like nobody’s business! now??? oi vey. i can barely concentrate on one thing at a time (because the brain has ideas and wants me to jump the moment i think of them – and then i never finish anything.)
i don’t know if it’s age, the result of all we have collectively been through with the pandemic and aftermath, or the influence of social media and media that is formatted for instant gratification and short-term attention spans. but it’s frustrating to feel like we can’t do/achieve all that we used to be able to. honestly, i think many of us ‘women of a certain age/generation’ are facing this adjustment of our concentration, energy, and ability. however, we can only do what we can do!
