Case of the Tumbleweeds

I’m having some major blockage of creative ideas for the blog lately. I think that’s the reason for my lack of updates, as for a week now I’ve thought on a daily basis about what I could write about next and nothing has come to mind. My last two posts I wrote on the same day, but scheduled them to post two days apart. I seem to have more ideas at once rather than every other day or so. Blah. How do you find inspiration for your blog?

Here are some ideas I have for future blogs:
New product release – I’m going to restructure my website and Etsy shop. My website will showcase my invitations, while the Etsy shop will be made for stationery sets, thank yous, call me cards and other paper goods. This is contingent on me finishing the revamp of my website, making new products for the Etsy and taking photos, etc. It seems one project is always dependent on another project’s completion.

Planning for the Tulsa Wedding Show – This is my biggest event of the year for me.  I haven’t tried to market my invitations at a trade show before and I am very excited at the possibilities of growth and exposure this will bring my business. I'd love to document this for everyone, as I think it will be a valuable tool to see what works and doesn't work at a show of this magnitude. 

House Remodel – I really want to put some elbow grease into my house and make it even more amazing than it currently is. I’m seriously thinking about hiring someone (ha as I talk about elbow grease) to do landscaping as we need it badly and though I would really love to do it, I have this terrifying fear of bugs (especially bees and wasps and hornets, the ones that will hurt me) so after about five minutes in the yard I’m a nervous wreck! Ha! I think to save my sanity I would like to hire someone, at least to get the yard and landscaping cleaned up before winter (any suggestions would be awesome!). I think my first project inside the house will be the bedroom. There are plenty of ideas in the ‘ol noggin for that room just need to get to it!  Maybe I could generate some idea boards and post them on here.

I’d like to walk you guys through each of these things, but alas I have to get to work on them first! They won’t get done on their own! Sometimes it’s like I have this beehive of ideas going on in my head and it’s hard to organize them all and figure out what I’m going to do next, and after that, and next month, etc. It seems when I do plan it out more ideas come up that bump into other ideas or make them not as important.. Or I’ll get an order and that is of course always a priority! But I have found that if I just start working, it all gets done without a panic. So I guess it’s time to just dive right in!

I hope you all have a wonderful work week. I will leave you with this quote:
