We’re getting down to the wire now.
Here I thought I had oodles of time. My big debut in the
isn’t ‘til the merry month of June and in my world the grass hasn’t even begun to sprout yet. But when I check the calendar…there the date is…looming pretty quick and I come to the realization that God’s world will undergo some pretty big miracles in the changing of the seasons in that time span and apparently I’ve got to too!
You’d think the weather would keep me inside and increase my artistic productivity. Well, not really. I’m inside, maybe productive, but artistic? Not on canvas.
Hello, My name is Jen and I am a procrastinator.
Things I’ve managed to do while avoiding Art this month:
-I’ve noticed a few pieces of furniture need refinishing and I got started.
-The bedroom could be rearranged, I started that too.
-While at that, a great time to eliminate my husband’s armoire and recreate the space which led to starting more furniture refinishing.
-Woodwork needs to be finished…all throughout the house…people can’t look at art if the baseboard is missing, right?
-There are a few walls that need some fresh paint too!
-Pillows I’ve been planning to sew need to get done. (I’ve had the stuff for 2 years now, it’s most imperative that they are done.)
-Also a great time to teach my 11 year old to sew!
-Oh...and this is HUGE and fun and awesome....I purchased a new camera, a REAL one...first great one I've had since before digital came out, so there's the job of learning how to use it too!
Need I go on?
These are things that don’t matter, not in the least. At least not for the tour. Somewhere in my imagination they do matter.
But can I validate doing them right now?
Not on my life.
But does that matter to me?
Not a bit.
I will continue. I will do all this and yes, the art too.
Welcome to my world.
I drive myself crazy. Often.
In fact I’m doing it right now.
And I fear: Others around me as well.
