God gave me these hands to create…… with all the time I’ve spent on the road and with all the craziness I allow myself to get caught up in….. I finally discovered the blessing that I knew would come from my broken foot this summer……
I’ve continued to work as if I didn’t have this stupid injury. After a few weeks of pain and irritation, I finally gave in and decided that I had no choice…. I was now going to spend my evenings with my feet up (not the days that my physician recommended) and I was going to find myself again!
Every huge serving of business that is piled high on my full plate is courteous of yours truly! LOL I did it to myself. I’m OCD, yet unorganized; ahead, yet behind; tired, yet restless! And then it occurred to me……… I haven’t spent much time in the studio on anything other than custom orders for months!
Creating is my first love! It’s what makes me happy and it’s what I dream about. However, I’ve had the worst artists’ block in my history………. Why? Cause I’m too freakin busy! So….. after all the conversations with The Man and all the pondering I’ve done on my hiney, on my couch, with my dog (most evenings) ….. I decided that I am going to take time everyday in my studio to do something…. anything…..
I did it! I made a set of 5 photo / note frames out of old barn wood and some vintage office stuff! Not Noah’s Arc….. but it’s something! Maybe one day when I can hire enough elves to do the grunt work….. I can create all day! Peace and Love!
