Mid-week 6 and I’m lagging. This was to be expected, once work and school resumed there is often a chaotic period while routines and rhythm adjust. I am feeling overwhelmed as my teaching role consumes me…but I have been here before and once I sort things out I should be fine. For now I will just do my best and pretend!
This will also make my making more challenging with less time to experiment and create.
While my W5 rather large pin board is technically finished, I need to visit the local hardware to grab what is needed to firmly attach it to the wall. It was probably a slightly ambitious project considering I worked most days last week and only had the weekend to complete it. I also relied on valuable help from my neighbour as well as the use of his shed and power tools.
So the weight of a project takes much consideration. Most of us try to do too much on a daily basis as it is and though our lists of projects & desires may be long, it is important to balance everything out as best as you can. Never neglect your ME time, simply adapt it to fit, which is exactly what I’ll be doing these next few weeks, possibly months!
Think about the WHAT HOW WHEN & WHERE of what you want to achieve. Have you all the materials at hand? Do you need help? How long do estimate it will take?
I am going to concentrate on using my stash and my sewing machine to whip up some nifty pieces.
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.
