I have literally dozens of things I want to be working on, dozens of things that are started that need, at some point, to be finished and I'm having a difficult time getting the oompf to do them. Clay things, charm things, bead things, I have metal clay, a kiln, ideas, no oompf.
Life is good☺ Work is good☺ Hubby is good♥ Lily girl is good♥
It's all good 'cept for the oompf.

(yea, I know, I'm tired of the whining too. And I am totally done with it except to say that it has been raining for a solid week and hot flashes suck! OK, I'm done)
So I went here, go there, you need to go there. And I found this
 And I made these   It helped;~)
