BTW: Procrastination

I've had the same set of beads and components sitting on my desk since Friday afternoon. I've rearranged them about 40 times.

I have a vague idea of what I want to do with them, but can't seem to find the time or energy to actually MAKE something with them. It's distressing.

I know I've been busy since Friday with the nieces and Pat and family things and planning wedding showers and. . .  you get the idea. But it just doesn't feel like I've accomplished anything at all in the past five days.

And, here I am delaying the actual work again by writing a blog post. I don't feel like I'm subconsciously procrastinating for any particular reason, yet there it all sits.

I love where I'm going with this, I really do. I've just got some kind of mental block on getting it finished.

I guess it's about time to jump in and make it happen.

Join in the fun and show off what's on your craft desk in the Bead Table Wednesday Flickr Group.


  1. Hi there, I've been AWOL for several weeks due to an illness and just getting around to visiting my favorite blogs. The beads here are just beautiful, and I can't wait to see it finished.

    Have a wonderful week!!

  2. you've got some great beads there Hope! I totally know what you mean ... I've got a couple of those beads pushing around my table too at the moment. sigh. need to get at it!

  3. Cynthia- Thanks. I finally got something started with them. I think I like the direction I'm heading, but I started to over think it so I knew it was time to step away until I can let it flow again. Here's hoping your beads start to fall together as well!

  4. Hope, what a gorgeous palette you are working with I know when the block goes away there will be something outstanding on your bead table. I can't wait to see it! ;)

  5. Penny- Thank you! I JUST finished the necklace at long last and am looking forward to having something else hog the precious space on my desk. I'm actually considering submitting that necklace so I won't be showing it off anytime soon. Sorry!


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.
