Okay, so where have I been lately? I haven’t been in blogland! I haven’t been in my workroom! I haven’t been working on projects! I just haven’t been anywhere! I’ve been in a funk! A totally self absorbing funk ….Beyond just the normal everyday clatter in my head, I’ve just not been able to focus on anything.
- There are issues with our son ….forever ongoing and it gets me quite distressed. You would think that at 28 there would be fewer issues.
- There are issues with my workroom …I want it to be clean and well organized.
- There are issues with my on-going projects ….I want them done.
- And ….there are issues with me trying to come up with something clever and artistic that I can sell. I really beat myself up about this one. When it comes to trying something new, or starting something new; I’m totally the analytical, logical one. I over analyze, I over think and in the end I don’t accomplish anything. That is no way for a creative mind to think!
All of this, hanging over me like some dark rain cloud.
After weeks of wandering the house, after weeks of beating myself up, after weeks of keeping it all inside, I’ve finally see a small light through the dark clouds. You see, I’m one of those individuals that keep it all inside …I stew, I brew ….I become very quiet.
I awoke the other day and finally decided ENOUGH! Enough self indulgence, enough mulling over, I’ve decided to just let it all go. I know that there will always be issues with our son and we get through those each and every time. My workroom is no Martha Stewart …but, I know where everything is and after all; it is a workroom. It’s meant to be the way it is. I think I’m influenced too much by those crafty sites I see with workrooms all neat and organized. In reality, who works in those rooms?
My projects are just that! They are projects …that means they are in-progress and that they will someday be completed.
As for trying to find a niche in the sales department, I will just have to follow my heart and one day I hope it will take me to my niche. I will approach my workroom not with a logical mind, but with an artistic mind in hopes that the ideas will then flow.
Well, that’s it in a nutshell! Thanks for listening to my self-indulgent ranting! This is something that I don’t normally do …open up about it. So thank you for listening. I promise that I will be back soon with something artistic and fun to show you.
A few projects that are just hanging around! So many projects .....so little time!
Well now, the workroom does look a bit busy! A girl just needs it all, doesn't she?
