Pouch ... Creativity... Nap

Coco, the studio mascot, in nap mode

I made up a new pouch today.
I'm trying to decide what size to make these. They're all a wee bit different. I want to do some pencil case sized pouches too...maybe that'll be next.

Do you watch American Idol? If you do, you know how the judges sometimes say the singers chose a song that was 'safe' ? That's how I feel about my projects right now.
I love to make them, they're nice, etc.
But they're safe.
Sometimes I feel the need to know: I can get out certain fabrics, certain patterns, make something, and it'll most likely turn out after spending so much time and supplies on them.
But sometimes, like now: I feel the need to try something new.

After going to the Country Living Fair this past weekend I was re~inspired to try some new things. I used to make all kinds of different things pre ~etsy shop. Greeting cards, drawings, flower pins, lots more knitting...
Now that I have had an etsy shop for awhile...I feel like I only have time to do what needs to be done for the shop.
I have some new ideas swirling around in my head that just need to get made so maybe that's what I'll work on next. I need to make some time to be more creative.

Are you being safe with your projects too?

This is what I really want to do though :

Lay down and take a nap, right here ; )
