pushing away fear in learning something new

When you are self taught in doing the things you love like jewelry making sewing and quilting there is always that fear factor of learning something new.

Well I finally pushed some of that fear away and decided to try a new sewing adventure.  I've always loved dolls and doll clothes especially when i see some of the most beautiful and beautifully embellished handmade ones.

This is my very first attempt at trying a shirt and skirt for an 18" in doll.

Far from perfect and needs tweaking but I'm very proud of myself for trying something new that I have wanted to do.

Thanks for looking....

Happiness is...

What can I say I'm obsessed with taking pictures of my fur kids...

And black and white photos are my favorite.

It's all about a dog and her bouncy ball finding happiness in simple things...

Hand Stitched...

Every now and then I enjoy some hand stitching...

Made a nice bag for pens/markers etc or whatever.

insomnia and creativity

Unfortunately with me having so many health issues I also suffer from insomnia.
Last night I had a bad case of it and was still awake at 2 am.  If finished a book I was reading, started another and then bam my muse visited me and i had a rough draft to a new poem.  I love writing and haven't wrote any new poems lately so this was at least a productive insomnia night.

Do you have suffer from insomnia and get bursts of creativity like this?
