What do you do when you're blasting The Rolling Stones while in the shower, which is right by the front door, and then the doorbell rings? My neighbors probably hate me.

I thought I'd ramble a little bit about something that's been on my mind this week.

It's been one of those weird weeks where I'm questioning every single thing I'm doing/trying to do with my life. This happens from time to time, and the thought of ditching this blog is brought up every cycle, without fail. It's a ridiculous thought as well, because I love this space. This thing keeps me going, you know? So the negative thoughts that I never really follow through on, thankfully, usually lead to having to take a step back and remember why I love this, remember why I create, and remember that I'm nothing if I'm not creating. It's dramatic, but it's true. I don't even remember how I functioned as a teenager when I didn't create every day. What did I do? What would I do if I dropped everything now?

I don't know. I don't want to know.

So here's what I need to remember, and if you're doubting yourself right now, you do too:

1. Just because you're moving slower at the moment, doesn't mean you're not moving at all. Progress, no matter the size or amount, is still progress. There's time.

2. Stick to what you love creating. If you don't enjoy one medium anymore, and/or if you you find that you enjoy another medium more, do that. Don't beat a dead horse. Isn't that the saying? It's awful.

3. You know the negative mindset is fleeting. You know it is.

4. Power through the creative block. You don't really want to quit.

These photos were a lot of fun to take, though you can see in the first photo the exact moment one of my flowers fell apart. Whoops. Also, the neighbors behind that fence were out, and from the elevation, they can see into my yard. I'm telling you, I think my neighbors are pretty wary of me. It's honestly kind of fun.

I've been styling pieces with Yoins on Polyvore. You can check that out here.


  1. Love this article girl !

  2. Lovely post Amber, the flowers add such a nice touch. It's true, when there is block you've just got to be patient and ride it out. It always eventually passes and I'm glad you're not getting rid of your blog :)

    Take care,
