Woohoo! I got into the studio for a bit this evening!
I didn’t have time to tackle a canvas – there just wasn’t time, but I was able to do my July ATCs. I was afraid I didn’t even have enough time to complete them, but everything clicked. I was able to do them from start to finish, from coming up with the idea to the finish work in just a couple of hours, and it felt AMAZING! Our theme this month was “Sweet Summertime” and what could be a sweeter part of summer than s’mores?
It was my reward to myself for keeping my nose to the grindstone and doing what I was SUPPOSED to do this afternoon.
But I really need to stop looking at my art time as a reward. It needs to become just a given in my day, whether I’ve been productive or not. I think at this point in my life, I deserve it! So, I penciled in some time for tomorrow…we’ll see if it happens!
We had company from home for a short time yesterday, so in anticipation of their visit, I frantically cleaned up all my overflow messes. The dining room table had housed all the inspirations decks as they came in, so we hadn’t seen it in weeks! Pretty sad when you feel compelled to take a picture of your clean table! Ha! Thought I’d show it to you …it won’t look so nice for long! I’m in the process of collecting up vintage doilies to make a long runner. I’m almost there! Just a few more.
