Creativity block

Unfortunately, due to work and home issues, I have had a creativity block. It's like writer's block and I'm hoping it comes back soon because that's the only thing I've ever done in life that is considered ok by the ones I thought loved me. It's hard to be superwoman. I only wish I was in this house alone without hearing I ruined their life a hundred times and never do chores. It gets old. It's much better to be alone than lonely. So, I will have to take my focus off designing and cross stitching and to trying to clean house better and being a better person at work. Oh sweet to meet the needs of others all the time. Funny how I thought I counted somewhere. With a three story house and a job from a hot place that may be a long time.

Till later,


  1. Jennifer,
    Sometimes life does get in the way of what we love to do. From one creative person to another, I think its hard to find a balance. I wish you well and peace of mind, I think your creativity block will clear while you are in the midst of "taking care of business" so to speak..

  2. You are counted by your blog readers! Please remember that.

  3. Jennifer,take a deep breath ,look in your mirror and say " I am who I am"

  4. There are many people out here in 'Blogland'. that love and admire you. Don't be upset Sweetie. We all have days like that. Take care of yourself. Blessings from the UK

  5. Jennifer so far I just don't have anything better to say to you than we love you and treasure you. I hate it that they don't appreciate you and what you do. It isn't being a mom and housekeeper and worker as if housekeeping and being a mom wasn't work enough. Why can' they do some stuff? You don't have to be superwoman and do it all - there are other people in your house that are more than capable of helping you.

  6. Jennifer,

    Hang in there. It is difficult to find balance between our needs and the needs of others and have-to-dos and want-to-dos. Life is dynamic and we are constantly making adjustments.

    I am sure you will find your balance again and your creative juices will start to flow.

    Until then, remember only dull women have immaculate homes.

    You will be in my prayers.

  7. I'm not sure what happened to discourage you so much, nor do I need to, but please remember that your blogging and designing inspire and encourage many others in blogland, so please hang in there. Things will look up, I promise!

  8. Jennifer, you sound like you could use a BIG (((((((((HUG)))))))).
    Take care.

  9. Hang in there, Jennifer. Thinking of you.

  10. I also going through the preteen tirades. I am putting things in economic terms--showing granddaughter how much it would cost to get a full-time maid and a babysitter (other than me)who could/would spend several nights a week. Creating keeps me sane and able to weather these temporary storms. keep on stitching, and know that you are not alone.
