It is getting easier...kind of!
I had a good start on projects this week, but yesterday just when I wanted to finish things off, if I wasn’t busy distracting myself, there were plenty of other distractions from animals to teenagers, technology, phone calls and friendly neighbours.
I’ve kind of figured that despite how focused I manage to be, there will always be the daily juggling act to contend with and my routine is going to get busy quickly.
Even so, my colourful chandelier looks lovely and I also finished two others! ( I could probably spend the year or more simply completing unfinished projects...)
These last few years I have become quite fascinated with mobiles. I call them hanging gardens, (see my Pinterest board of the same name for plenty of inspiration), and they can be anything from dream catchers, sculptural hangings, mobiles, light shades or installations.
I make them imagining that whoever acquires them will add their own personal touches, keeping the creative energy alive.
Today I am up late again. Week 4 has begun with a minor material setback all because La Marquise (my car), true to her nomenclature, decided that she wanted a new set of keys. Who ever dreamed that 2 keys could cost a days wages!
No choice, I coughed up the fee and lost an hour and a half in the process so, once again, not as many ticks on my list as expected.
Keys today, an exploded spare tyre a few days ago, what surprises will tomorrow bring I wonder?
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
