i have been thinking alot lately about why i create and the time i spend doing it. i always wish i was a little more organized and spent more constructive hours producing what i love. i have to remember we are our own harsh critic and i must give myself the time and the positive push to keep doing what i do. one thing i will do this year is keep a notebook with the projects i want to do and those i want to finish. who knows maybe this will give me a little more focus. i know allot of what i do can not be done in a day and not even a week so i need to step back and let the process happen.
learning this blog stuff also takes time and i love how some of you have decorated your blogs. i have yet to figure out how to do that. time more time.
i have so many friends that have given birth recently or are about to. so needless to say i am thinking allot about babies and what i can make for them. there is nothing more pleasing than to create a unique doll, piece of clothing or blanket for a little one.
so now i am back to time.
the necklaces i have been working on are coming along great i have some new ideas and will try to post soon. i even had people come up to me wanting to know where i bought them! boy is that an ego boost. i am so excitied to share, but must work out some of the ideas first. i love the computor but it does take up time and looking at all of your great blogs is so inspiring.
the pillow is just a fast project i did yesterday, was tired of the fabric on the old one so had to change it up a bit. love the alphabet and of course red felt.
all have special meanings and really it doesn't matter that they may not be as sharp as they should be i just love looking at them and knowing that they have all come from special places. i think that is what collecting is all about. the memories that come along with each object.
i always wonder where does time go. i know sometimes it is me just wondering thru my day not sure of what i got done. yet i do have days where i work on a project and still feel where did the day go? i am lucky that my hubby doesn't need my constant attention. he entertains himself like i do. maybe that is why after 33 years we are still going strong. i know that if i need his opinion he will be there and be truthful. i do trust his judgement and i love that he has always encourged me to create. i can remember when we first met i said i would love to play the guitar and he went and bought me one! i love that he supports me in what i do and what i dream. 33 years of growing together and apart and encouraging both. marriage has been great and who would have thought i would have ended up here. how lucky i am.
