75.

I'm not sure whats going on with me but, I don't want to finish anything I've been knitting lately. All I want to do is just start new projects. I want more petit ballerina feet socks, I want to knit another cape, I want to make necklaces with the scrap yarns that I have but - I am not interested in finishing any of these items, nor am I interested into sewing any of them together and or blocking. I wish that the magical finishing fairy would come and get all this stuff done for me.

I've been thinking lately of making more time for my etsy shop in my life because I finally figured out that - working for yourself is WAY more fun than working for someone else. I mean, I don't work 5 days a week - I don't know many servers who do but, I am at around 3 or 4 days a week and on my off days, I'm doing makeup so it might not hurt to specifically set aside one day a week to just work on my etsy shop.

It's mom's last day today which is sad - we've had a really good time. Having your mother around while your moving is kind of the best thing ever. My sink and countertops are so clean! My jewlery is all untangled and the coffee is generally ready in the morning before I even wake up! It's great! But, I suppose all good things must come to an end and tonight I will resume my regular life and experience my new apartment with my manfriend as it is going to be.

On that note, I am taking my mother makeup shopping now before she has to go to the airport. Finally, someone who is going to take advantage of my 40% off at M.A.C.

It's Startitis. You're going to be okay; we've all had it. Love the photos of the new shop stuff!

Hey, if you ever find that finishing fairy, send her my way too! Maybe we can start a trend: spring and summer are for Starting, fall is for Finishing.

I think you totally should make all of those things for your etsy shop!! Also, I have been working with cheapskate makeup for my whole life and don't know anything about nice MAC stuff...but I would be really into a trade of some kind? I've heard good things about their creme pot eyeliners and "smoky eye" eyeshadows (not that I know how to achieve said eye). Help me mistress of makeup!!

I find it hard to finish the thing I've been working on when mentally I've already moved on to the next project and am dreaming about other things. If you make a list of your UFOs and start checking them off as you finish them it definitely helps.

High of 88 here today, I'm thrilled.

hopefully the knitting mojo will return soon- but I do know lots of people who only like knitting in the cooler months,because they don't like hot wooly things sitting on their laps in the summer. maybe that's you, too!

Hey, if you can take a day off to make stuff and relax, do it. Working every day (which it sounds like you're doing most of the time) can really wear you down, even if the work you're doing is stuff you like, or only a few hours a day. Try to get a day with no work commitments and if you can I think your knitting focus will return quickly!
