That sums up my weekend in one word. Mr. Monkeygirl was off to the races this weekend with the boys and Skaterboy was chillin' with his crew so I had the whole house to myself. You would think that I would get all kinds of crafty stuff done with nobody to interrupt my creative juices. Wrong!
I couldn't get my mojo going this weekend and so I got very little accomplished. I did manage to drag out my stash of beads and organized the whole lot. I now know exactly what I have and can find what I'm looking for without poking through assorted bags and boxes. Everything fit into one drawer so I was happy! But after spending all of that time sorting and organizing, I was out of steam and inspiration. Browsing a few of my favorite catalogs for inspiration did nothing for me because everything I liked required another trip to the bead store and I don't really need more beads!
My only inspiration was in animated form. I watched the Bee Movie and I kept eyeing Vanessa Bloome's necklace thinking "I could make that". It took me until tonight to figure out I could Google search for the image so I could mimic it! (By the way, I liked the movie - it was cute! I realize that my title might be a little misleading!)
My other animated inspiration was Lego Batman. I know I am supposed to me a grown woman but I want to play video games. I sent Skaterboy on a late night rental run but no luck - they were all rented out. So today I marched my adult self to the store and bought my own game. I have gotten better, I stopped beating up Robin on accident and figured out how to get rid of Catwoman. Too bad I have to work tomorrow or I could take on the Joker!
All in all it was a boring, uneventful weekend alone. I'm glad Mr. M is back or I would have to find more video games to fill my time!
