Go to Populuxe.ca.  That’s my new website me harties (okay, I’m a little late for talk like a pirate day).

Change your feeds too.



And now…

I’ve gotten the bare-bones of my brand new website up….

Populuxe.ca

I’ll be slowly adding and updating that website, and probably changing the layout further as I’m unsure how much I love the quick little sign I made.

Either way, the skeleton is there, and the updates and all bloggy goodness will be there from now on!

Hope to see you all there.  If you subscribe to the site, please subscribe to the new site via its RSS feed.



A new home (soon)

Well, being a person who has had my own domain for years now, I find it annoying at best that I have not since the “big move” of cities.

So, I went ahead and registered myself a domain name.  I will be getting the hosting part down tonight, and hopefully will have something to show for it by Sunday (albeit not much probably).

Who’s going to follow me?

First and foremost, a great big thank you to the wonderful Melissa over at Craftygrrrl.ca for being my super-awesome super-secret pal these past few months! I received your final gift today and it was just wonderful!

That’s right, that’s two of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s books! Also a super-handy tool to estimate my yardage of the yarn that I spinn and two Laura Secord chocolate bars! Thanks so much Melissa, you certainly did spoil me!

I’ve been sort of half-heartedly knitting the past few days. Mostly because I’ve been thinking, and having good talks with those with lots of insight. That’s never a bad thing, even if you hear things you don’t necessarily want to hear from people you love and people who only have your best interest at heart.

That being said, I have plans. A few plans that reach their tentacles out into a few different areas of my life. Most recently though, and in the online world, (as in ongoing right now because we’re talking about it), Penny and I are discussing the changes for our beloved Nervousness.org. We’re excited, but that’s all I’m going to say right now.

As for other areas of my life, writing, knitting, photography, spinning…. I’m looking into reaching out more into those a bit. No details on that either. I’m sort of being vague, I apologize, it’s just that there’s nothing to be detailed about yet.

Needless to say though that elusive creativity I was spouting off about before seems to be coming back into my life. Maybe it never left, but it sure felt like it took an extended vacation for a while.



Creativity

I’ve been thinking a lot lately.  Thinking a lot about inspiration and creativity.

This has led me to look within myself as well.  What makes me, what makes me creative or uncreative, what inspires me or uninspires me.  The answer is: I don’t know.

I’ve become increasingly frustrated lately with several creative factors in my life.  I know that only I build walls, yadda yadda yadda, I can do anything I put my mind to, etc.  Sometimes however it seems like even if I took a sledgehammer to those walls they wouldn’t budge.  I could stare at a piece of paper for hours until my forehead bleeds and yet nothing would come.

Other times I’m walking down the street and it just strikes me all of a sudden and I do everything I can to stop myself from physically running home.

Sometimes I have all the best intentions in the world, and yet the finished product isn’t the same that I had in my head.  It’s like my hands and my brain won’t communicate (a game of telephone gone horribly awry).

I’m just typing out loud here.  Pictures later, I promise.

How is everybody’s long weekend going?
