Time to light a fire!
I am trying really hard to motivate myself to get back into the studio. My plan is to make use of whatever free time I can spare to re-new my shop listings. Hubby got me a super cool journal for Christmas. It has photos of a quilled bird all through it. The pages are interesting, in that, some are lined, some not, some half lined...with no particular rhyme or reason. It really lends itself to whatever I feel like doing: lists, sketches, random notes that I hope I can understand later...
Today, I've been lazy. I visited my dad in the re-hab facility, after working a full day, without getting much sleep the night before. It is amazing how draining little things can be when they add up throughout the day. I have tomorrow off, so I am allowing myself some down time.
My basement has a bit of a dent in it, as far as my cleaning goes. After a trip to the recycling station tomorrow, I will be a little closer to clearing out the 'junky' half of our basement.
I have made a studio list for tomorrow, too. It is pretty helpful to have a day off, same as Hubby, when he has so much of his own work to do. I am less tempted to just watch trashy TV and eat popcorn all day. I could imagine a life being an artist couple...I think I could get used to it. If only the money was more consistent!
