I stayed up way to late last night reading Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” on the ole’ kindle last night. Not that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy having some “me” time and the rare pleasure of quiet, because I certainly did. However, I should have known that the night I stay up until 1 am reading is the night Roscoe gets up several times in the wee hours of the morning for one thing or another. Needless to say (although I’ll state it anyway), I am dragging today and planning on indulging in some caffeine to get myself productive at work. I figure that since I am over 8 months along, a little Starbucks rejuvenation won’t do much harm to the little bambino growing inside.
But enough complaining and strategizing how I’ll get through the day! Let’s discuss my goal for tonight, shall we? Admittedly I have been a tad lazy on the creativity front lately. I have shunned the sewing machine and crafting in favor of some lazy evenings and social outings. Now that I’ve given my creative spirit a rest, it’s time to get back into the swing of things and get cracking on some projects. First and foremost on the agenda is felted soaps. I’ve been seeing them everywhere lately! After a quick Bing search, I found several easy tutorials. I picked up my wool roving at Hobby Lobby the other day and happen to have several spare bars of soap at the house. Not sure my first attempts will look as good as these, but fingers crossed. I’ll post some photos tomorrow of my end product.

Who knew you could make such cute designs with felted wool? These character soaps are adorable!

These would make cute gifts for Valentine’s Day (which is quickly approaching!)

I will admit that knowing I have a fun project to look forward to tonight does help boost my energy for the day ahead- hopefully thoughts of shrinking roving will still be enough to get my through the 2 o’clock slump!
