Slump.

I’m in such a weird place right now, in terms of mostly everything. I haven’t been eating well, unless you count three meals a week of pickled okra, and my sleeping pattern is way off. Sleep until 11:40 a.m., then take a nap a 1:00 p.m.? Sure.

Unsure as to what is causing this, I sit pondering, browsing the internet, and basically vegging out on the couch. What a life, right?

I’m stuck in a rut.

Nevertheless, things need to get done. Reading. Creative fiction piece from 8–12 pages. Independent film viewing.

But what am I doing? Blogging. 🙂

I think I’ll just call this what it is. A slump. The February slump. And all I can do is attempt to crawl out from under it.

But in other news, the knitting is coming along well!

See you soon, hopefully from a much more productive and exciting place.

What a Monday.

Well, as the song goes, it’s just another manic Monday. Ouch. That was corny.

As you can see, the blog has gotten a makeover! I recently got some design work done by the wonderful Donnell Gray, whom I used to go to high school with! She is amazingly talented in both design and photography! Check her out here. Besides the banner, above, here is a sneak peek of my new, beautiful logo!

I am so proud of this bad boy! I’m working with someone to make it into a stamp! How exciting.

In other news, school has stared, thus begins the spiral into procrastination. I really should be doing some reading. Is it bad that it’s only day two of class for me and I’m not feeling it?

Despite being motivated on the school front, I have really been kicking creative bootay. I would like to say I’m 1/3 the way don’t with a new knitted neck-warmer, and oh yea, I made my FIRST SALE on Etsy! And I made a pillow for a wondeful coworker, and she said another person wants one too! Woo hoo!

And that’s all for now. I’m getting so excited for what all will come this year.

Peace.

Holy inspiration!

So, Friday (yesterday,) I had the day off. I had big plans for yesterday. Big ones. Most didn’t happen. Yes, I did do an online post for my philosophy class, but the 200+ pages that were to be read of Thomas Hardy? Nope. The compelling question essay for ENGL 4580? Nope.

But, I would like to think I did some hardcore researching for Lilly Ella Collections. This research consists of browsing Etsy, and eventually getting distracted by other blogs that branch from their blog. (Blogs are awesome. Mine’s not, yet, anyways…working on it). However random and time-wasting this may seem, I actually benefited greatly from it.

First and foremost, I discovered:

1. Fancy Tiger!

Fancy Tiger is a local craft and fabric shop off Ellsworth and Broadway and in short, is mindblowingly amazing. I love the feel of this shop! Their fabric collection is absolutely amazing, and I just feel so inspired by the whole idea of this shop. Here is a sneak peak of some fabric I got:

I'm in love. Period.

Ryan and I made a quick trip down there, and my only regret is that we didn’t have enough time to spend there! I have a feeling I will become increasingly acquainted with this glorious treasure very soon!

Now for the other benefits of my web-surfing.

2. Wholesale opportunities.

I have looked into some wholesale outlets for organic hand dyed fabrics, because I think there is more of a possibility for profit for Lilly Ella Collections if I buy wholesale. Plus, I found some more mindblowingly  beautiful fabrics. More to come on this later.

Last and not least:

3. Inspiration.

Through my browsing and shopping, I have developed at least three new designs for pillows! Woo Hoo! It is easy to be creative when the mind is introduced to so many creative ideas and places!

All in all, my seemingly unaccomplished day (in terms of un-fun stuff) really transformed into a rewarding day for Lilly Ella Collections.

Now I just need to get my hands on that sewing machine before my mind explodes from all these ideas!

See you soon!
