A Melancholy Mood


Today Im in a melancholy mood. Yes, believe it or not everyday in my world is not sugar n spice. LOL!!!  Today I feel calm, not stressed and super busy to the max. After a busy hectic month I welcome this change and feeling. I woke up this morning, grabed my Ipod and went for a nice walk listening to one of my favorite singers Neko Case. The clouds are rolling in, the wind is blowing and the rain will be here soon. It's nice to have mornings where I can think with no distractions and get lost in my thoughts. Mornings like this I feel very inspired. Do you ever have days or moods like this? 

I grabed my camera and captured a few shots of outside. There is just something about dark grey skies that eerie and cool!  



So on this grey day I will be spending most of it in this little corner of my home creating my usual sweet magical creations while looking out to the dark grey skies and listening to Neko and feeling good and inspired.

No fancy pictures here. 



My messy corner with the best views!   



My happy messy spot! 




Even tho' Im in a bit of a dark broody melancholy mood I will be having a ball playing in my glitter and bling! πŸ™‚

I will be updating my Lollishop this weekend!!!! So please check back!!!

Have a fabulous and creative weekend!!!

Definitely looking gray down your way. It is like that up here in the NE as well today. Warm though so I can’t complain. Your little corner looks very inspiring – lots of goodies to play with!

Hi Jenn! I just sat down to eat a late lunch and look at blogs and saw you posted! I just loved getting to see where you create your magical and beautiful creations!! What fun! It looks like the perfect place to be inspired! I see a pink vintage toy elephant up on the top shelf! Is he ever cute! I sure hope he gets to stay living with you because I dont think he would be happy anywhere else πŸ™‚ The bunny and elephant planter look so happy sitting on your desk too πŸ™‚ Is the precious bunny on the bike shadowbox for sale?
Happy creating!

oh jenn, I do hope the sunshine and your sparkly smile and spirit all peek out from behind the clouds soon!! I know creating something sweet will help roll those clouds away!

it was gray and raining here today too…then the temperature dropped and it was gray with snow blowing around…i can’t wait to see what you create…it looks like you have a lot of fun things to play with!!!

Oh Jen, I adore this post, yes I love moods like that too…sort of re-grouping time!
I love the photos of your’messy’ bits as that really does look like the best place to play!! Imagine the fun I could have there! Thanks for sharing, enjoy your down day and happy weekend…

Jenn, your workspace looks wonderful – so much storage. I love Neko Case and hadn’t heard of her yet! Thanks for introducing me to her. You might like Patty Griffin.

I have been the same today…perhaps the gray, rainy skies here as well. Plus, I just watched The Secret Life of Bees…and it was very emotional…yet uplifting…but left me with my thoughts to ponder…
Your space is beautiful and more often than not…those darker days can produce the most creativity!

hi Jen you can send some of that cold weather over here if you like.Love looking at your craft spot and love following your blog,thanks.love Glenda

Hi Jenn! What a wonderful studio. I’d love to come create with you!! If it looks that glorious on a gloomy day, I can just imagine what it must be like on a sunny day!!

Hi Jenn,
I can’t wait to see what you created, I have been checking your shop today and waiting patiently : ) Your creative space is amazing, so sweet and inspiring. I hope you are having a good weekend.

what a great place to play jenn! I love all of the little bits stacked up here and there. Just being surrounded by my “stuff” gets me inspired!
I hope you got lots made in your melancholy mood. xoxoxo Heather

Hi Jenn!
I see that I’ve missed a couple of posts..(I got a virus on my laptop last Saturday) I’m trying to catch up on what I’ve missed and I saw on my Reader list that you had posted.
Thanks for sharing your workspace…you are so creative and talented. I bought some ceramic angels…the awful dark gold ones but I thought I could paint them white and Jenn them up a bit but I’m not sure what kind of paint to use. What do you suggest? I’m a total dunce at craft.
Loved your photos…I love dark and cloudy days where I can snuggle up in the pink quilt my grandmother made for me.
Have a wonderful Monday!

Hi Jenn,
I love your happy messy spot. I noticed some pretty pink Ostrich feathers in the corner. Where did you get those amazing feathers in pink? I love them.

Hiya Jenn πŸ™‚ Love all the pretty pics! I LOVE those grey/cool/almost fixing to rain/rainy days……seems so peaceful as opposed to those HOT muggy summer days we get here in Texas. Wish it was Spring and Fall all the time πŸ™‚
I know you will come up with some pretty, bright & cheery creations!

Hi Jenn your little corner mess is so beautiful, I love all your pink treasures in your studio, being messy is being very creative and with a happy heart.
xoxo Susie
