I Need Help Please

Time for truth!!!

This is pathetic, and I realized I need help. 

I've been thinking about this for such a long time, that I am about to close my blog. I love to share and have an online community but doesn't seem to work like that for me lately.

I like to do so many things, I have so many hobbies, and no time for it. I even had a week off from work, but I haven't been able to touch any of my crafts, not even read my books because all I have done is catch up with house work that was piled up until I had time to do it.

Yes, to me this is pathetic, but I can't seem to steer away from that pattern of being a time victim.

I have so many ideas, so many dreams... sigh... but nothing comes out it.

I even joined a couple of challenges, but doesn't seem to work like that for me. Prompts are not working for me, seems like I want to work on my crafts whenever I feel like it, without a time pressure, but that's when the problem comes... I never get to it.

Have any of you out there been through that?

Is there any advise you can give me to get out of this  rut?

As some of you know, I've been going through a lot lately or maybe not.

My husband had 3 car accidents, none of these his fault, leaving his back and neck totally messed up, I even have to put his socks on, tie his shoes, and bend down for him every time he drops something, thank goodness for my little one that does this most of the time for me.

So between doctors appointments, lawyers, car and health insurance phone calls, kids summer programs, driving here and there and house work, cooking every day since we don't eat out due to allergies and health issues, you can see I have a lot in my hands. But I can give you 30,000 excuses to say, maybe is not the best time for me to do this and have a blog, but I love putting my word out there.

Is there any way you can help me with free advise?

Thanks a million,

God Bless You all,

Clemencia

Summer Color: Crocheted Sunglass Case


Hello There :)

Here again :) Last night I made another sunglass case, but this one is for my daughter.
Love the coral color she chose, awesome for the summer here in Florida :)

Again I followed the same free pattern here on my Pinterest but this time I started with 8 chains, I used a worsted yarn and crochet hook size F/5 to make a tight stitch so the sunglasses don't get scratched :)

Pretty simple and very easy to make :)

I made it in one night :)

I hope this challenge you to make one for yourself :)

Thanks for visiting my blog :)

ICAD Day 3

Day 3: My Name :)
 
This is my little art for today :)
 
 
I made this with stamps as you can see:
 
  • spelling my name
  • the typewriter
  • and the swirl
The heart was made with gelatos and a little water on the brush, finished with a black pen to simulate sewing :)
 
The cup is my own drawing with cheap bic color pens.
 
And the splashes is made with my homemade sprays.
 
Hope you like it, I really enjoyed making this and only took me around 15 minutes :)
