My creative space

I'm tackling all the jobs that are still on the LIST.

I'm finding that I can't be really creative when there are so many unfinished projects looming that I've promised to lots of people. The only solution is to finish each and every project, one by one.

The first project completed today - the white tees weren't very practical for bubbas who spend most of their day crawling around on the floor..... so now they have matching ones in navy blue.

It's back to the LIST for me.... check out lots more creativity at Kootoyoo.

The navy looks great & yes much better for grubby 1 year olds.

Bec @ honi design said...

Emjie said...

Those stars are perfect.

myf said...

the t-shirts look wonderful. crossing stuff off lists is very satisfying- make sure to include 'drink cup of tea of tea in the sun' on todays list...

handmaiden said...

The navy tees would make this mum smile. Hope you are continuing to feel virtuous and creative. Lisa.x

I've got a list happening too! No more new projects until at least most of the ones of the list are finished...

That cowboy fabric looks amazing with the navy! I have a problem with things pending too... I'm trialing sticking to one thing at a time at the mo but that gets pretty boring and I don't think it produces the best work... I'm feeling very stale with my collage :( I think I'll start making a list too! Thanks for this - great post! K

Selina said...

mmm, maybe a list is what I need! what a novel idea!! hehe!

Tania said...

I still haven't worked out how to keep a kid's white tee stain free. But I always make sure I appreciate the hell out of the first couple of white wearings!

Jenaveve said...

A list? Oh dear... that's what I am missing :)

Cindy said...

I know...it's so hard to finish things but it's rewarding when it's done.

kellie said...

I'm trying to ignore the list! But these Tees, and the outfits, are gorgeous. Great fabric.

Gina said...

Think I need to take a leaf from your book and write myself a list - you're right, those must-do projects really hamper the creativity when they're just hovering there making us feel guilty!

claribell said...

love the matching cowboys. i just noticed your 'stuff i want to make links' i think i need to add one of those to my blog....when i finish my own list of course ;o)

Sherrin said...

I love the cowboy fabric!

Good luck working your way through your list!

Michelle said...

I like your philosophy! Just do it!

Liesl (Hoppo Bumpo) said...

You're a good auntie making a second round of t-shirts in a dark colour!

I think I need to take a leaf out your book and write myself a LIST. I know (and imagine that you might be able to guess) exactly what is at the top!

Nikki @ My Black Cardigan said...

Ah, the pressure of unfinished projects. The fallout of too many ideas that have to be started now or I'll forget!! Maybe you need to start another list of new ideas you come up with while you're working on your unfinished list so that you can still feel a little be creative.

I love the sheriff/star combo. Very clever!

Swirlyarts said...

Don't you just love and hate to do lists. Love because you can see exactly what you need to do and hate for the same reason! Good to tick jobs off though :)

Lauren said...

That cowboy fabric is so cute!

Jennifer Rose said...

the cowboy fabric looks really good with the dark blue :)

Lists are helpful, well as long as I stop losing them :p

Cindy said...

Twice the use now as the pants never get as dirty as the tops and they will be up and running in no time

caramela said...

Great stars- love lists- I should make one The List too- I think maybe I have too many small ones ...Good luck, would love to see how it all turns out-

amity ville boronia said...

Babies are so inconsiderate. Sheesh! :D

ArtMind said...

My list always seems to grow instead of getting shorter... Good luck on tackling your list! :)

Muddlepud said...

I have the same trouble, with not being able to be creative when I have to-do's looming over me. But then I get frustrated by that, which spurs me to tackle the to-do list, so I guess it all works out in the end. ;)

Michelle said...

The stars look great. White shirts never last too long here either.

Love the stars and the blue
