Blogging is wearing-me-out!!!

It's 6:30am and I am having my first cup of coffee, laptop on and tuned-in to blogging.  Feet up, still in pj's and visiting all my blogger buds.  I always go back and review as many posts as I can.

First blog I click on is Marsha's, Sassy Mini Dolls,  I am looking through her post She is showing us  how to add some fufu to a darlin little pink bottle and it's oh, so pretty!  Talk about talent going in several different directions, this girl has got-it-goin-on! 
So, I immediately jump-up and head to my "prop closet," to find a pretty bottle.
I know I've got one in somewhere, now
let's see.......................... Oh, wonder how THAT got in

I just know I had some extra beads and ribbon and stuff in here.....
what did I do with those pink pearls???
Ok, back to the computer, put my feet up and take a sip of
cold coffee.....I'll get back to that project later

Then I go over to Spencer's at Bellamere Cottage, and she is talking about her collection of wonderful Cathy Kidston fabric lookalikes. Spencer oozes creativity.

Oh wait, I have some fabric kinda like that.....and off I go to look through my stash!  Twenty minutes later I return to my computer
put up my feet again and give up on the coffee

Now, I'm on Kendall's Blog, Finesse Your Nest.  This girl is a junk "picker extrodinaire"
The girl found this in someone's trash for heaven's sake....

Gosh, I would like to follow her around!

She goes around pickin up people's trash and turning it into something wonderful, which reminds me, I'm in's trash day in my neighborhood and the trash truck hasn't run.

Still got time for a few more blogs.
I go to Lisa's at Tarnished and Tattered and she's making
this adorable little box.....

Now why and the world, do I think that I can do something this fantastic?  Lisa is one of the most talented artists and creates the loveliest things.............I know I have egg cartons somewhere, all I have to do is throw out Mr. Sissie's I go to the garage, just to take inventory.......then back to my computer........
sheeeze.............I'm worn out!
And my doctor says to exercise more often!!

Well, I might as well go on over to Karyn's at French Charming.
This girl is so girlie, girlie and so sweet.  However, today
she is having bloomer !!

Seems as though she keeps showing everyone her bloomers by constantly slipping in her glass slippers!
Speaking of which I better pull up my big girl britches and get
movin!!!!  Whew is it bedtime yet.....I'm so tired.

Please go and check out all these talented women,
I know they will ispire you to get up and get movin.....
get your groove on.................get your mojo workin......
get bookin..............boogie down...........enough already!
I need rest!!



CARMELINA LOUNSBURY said... were a great read, delightful, actually....i was enjoying my tomato sandwich with your blog post!!!!!

I bet you didn't know that you go good with tomato anything? Did you? lol


Madlinka said...

O wow! Unless I see miracles! These materials and glass-beautiful!
Hugs from Poland!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

No wonder you're exhausted! You better have another cup of coffee, Sissie! : ) These are all great ideas and I'd like to thank you for adding even more blogs for me to get through today!

The Muse said...

I adore the mention of other bloggers in your post...I am all about lifting up others!
now..go take a nap! LOL

Blondie's Journal said...


You are so funny. I have done a lot of the same thing. Do you know that I saw a basket of white flowers near your front door in a picture last week and it inspired me to make my version of it? I guess that is the best of blogging!! Thanks for YOUR inspiration!


My name is PJ. said...

How much fun this was to read, Sissie!! Bloggers are so talented it's almost scary! These artistic, crafty folks leave me awestruck.

(Pssst, you could so do any of that with your hands tied behind your back and a blind-fold on while marching backwards.)

Riet said...

OH Sissie, you are the greatest and you make me laugh so much. I am like that too, get from one idea to another, everything is exciting and you forget your coffee. ROTFLOL Have a great day

Gay Vaughan said...

Sissie, this is a great post. PERFECT for my weekly party, Tribe Talk. You have to link-up...pretty please?? Love your blog.

Kathysue said...

Sissie, I am cracking up, only because I can somewhat relate. You are wonderfully funny, love your sense of humor. I read another blog this morn. that was complaining when she views other blogs she wants to change everything. I guess you were not the only one having blogger issues this morning. The morning sure can get away from you when you blog hopping. Have a great day, I think a nap is in order, Kathysue

Dorthe said...

Oh sweet woman, such a wonderfull start of day,you had,--you are a good story writer,

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Sissie Sweetie...
You are just the cutest darn thing. I love this post. You made me laugh even with this darn migraine I have been battling today. I always have to stop by and smile.

I have been working on a little craft of my own that I am going to try and post later today. If you get a chance check back tonight and see if it is up. I really do love it. Just in time for Easter.

Now take a deep breath, slow down, and catch your breath. You are wearing out your little slippers running back and forth. Do they make a little front back carrier for your computer where you could just take it with you when you go to check for things? You can design one I am sure of it.

Love ya sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry

Linda K. said...

I'm still smilin'. You sound like me so many days. All this blog hopping can get a girl wore out. Great post, great blogs here that I've visited often. These girls are talented for sure. Have fun, Sissie!


Rustique Gal said...

Dear Sissy,
You must get a candle warmer to keep your coffee hot while you do all that strenuous exercise! I love your posts and your pictures. And I love blogging and all the inspiration I find from everyone. Keep on keepin on, as they say!

Sherrie said...

Oh goodie, you have a stash of fabric and bottles. My kind of gal. I official declare you a junking duck. Welcome to the club.

Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

LOL, I'm worn out reading your post! I'm the same way, Sissie! I see something on a blog and my mind starts racing and then of course I try to work on dolls in between . . . AND it's so funny that you posted that bottle as this morning (before I even read your post) I thought of another graphic that will go better, LOL, so look for it soon!!


TinyBear said...

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour Sissie,
You are one of the funniest and most delightful bloggers. I love your choice of blogger friend. Karyn makes me laugh out loud and has the best attitude. Get some rest my friend!
P.S. love your "prop closet"

Terri Smith said...

I absolutely love visiting your place! Please don't wear yourself out because it's something I'm sure everyone on your Follower list loves too!

I know exactly what you mean about following that sweet Kendall around! She can definitely find some gems!

Many thanks for spotlighting the sites you mentioned because now I have more exciting places to add to my blogging visits.

LOVE the new pillows! I think I need them! Hmm!

Karyn Bernard (French Charming) said...

Oh I adore you and how I can relate! I have to be up and at it every morning no later than 5:15 a.m. in order to arrive to work on time.

Now, this is a gosh awful hour to get up but you know what? I get up 15-20 minutes early just to try and get a few blog visits in before I have to head out the door for work. I'll see something during my crack of dawn blog visits that sparks my creative juices and I just want to stay home and play.

Perhaps my lack of sleep and having my head bombarded with so many ideas is making me clumsy which results in the horror of showing off my bloomers! You know Sissie…I’m darn tired too!

Thank you for always giving me a great big smile every time I visit you delightful blog home!

Big Hugs,

It's nuts I tell you!

June said...

My goodness Sissie, how did I ever miss that darling box that Lisa made? imust have been blog hopping somewhere else in blogland.

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

I like the blogs on your required reading list!
I'd just add one more to that roll call...YOU! :-)

Have a wonderful Thursday!
Anne said...

Oh Sissie, I agree with all of the comments - you crack me up! I do the same thing as you, only I'm here looking at your pillows. I say, Lisa you can do that. You have sheet music. So I copy it, waste a yard or 2 of fabric, cuss at my sewing machine & then blow it off & wait patiently for another Sissie giveaway! Thanks for showing my egg baskets, BTW my family will be eating egg salad for weeks! Lisa

Amy Kinser said...

How funny, Sissie. You are one busy lady.

Sares said...

These are all such wonderful ideas, and so beautifully crafted. The talent amongst our fellow bloggers never ceases to inspire and amaze me!

Fawn @ Patina Soul said...

Ha! That was a funny post! :)

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

I love your post, Sissie and I'm already exhausted from reading it and seeing you running through your home, LOL! You are so right of course! There is so much creativity and inspiration that it's hard to realize all the ideas we get from reading other blogs. It's a lot of fun though and I wouldn't wanna miss it.
Sleep well and get a good rest before you get worn out again tomorrow morning ;-)!

Shellbelle said...

Oh, you had me laughing out loud with this post Sissie! I can completely relate. I'm in the middle of packing to move to Georgia and I have a couple of boxes labeled "Shop the House Sunday" for Kendall's meme when I get settled in my new home.

I also have a file on my computer to save photos that have given me new decorating and crafting ideas. As I pack I'm trying to get rid of some things, but I end up thinking, "I better keep this, I could use it for this or that."

I have gotten so many ideas from my blogging friends, it will keep me busy and out of trouble for years to come!

Debby said...

Big huge yawn!!! I am in the same mess as you and still trying to catch up! Great post, so many goodies. I jumped on Lisa's gorgeous easter baskets, they are fab!

~ RM said...

lol, I can see how you'd be a little low on energy! ;) Better get another pot of coffee on!

I've given you an award, check out my blog to accept it!

Bunny said...

What a fun post and I know exactly what you mean. LOL

Linda said...

You are just too funny girl...luv your post! Come by and check out my giveaway!


Tracie said...

I love this trip through your blogging day! I can relate. I often find myself going off on a tangent and thirty minutes later coming back to blogging over and over again!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said... I have someone to blame... :) I come to see you Sissie, determined to visit all those who have commented on my post...and then I see you mentioned this site..and that blog and I rush off to check..and sure enough I see something I have to check..then remember..and rush back to your blog to see what you have done and there is another name and off I go again. And soon...I have visited almost NONE of the blogs I started off determined to visit. the bottle...what cute idea's they come up with! I can see why it can cut into one's day!
Hugs and love,

alice said...

Oh Sissy are you sure we are not identical twins separated at birth! That was such a wonderful and understanding post! It’s me meme! It really was priceless!
