You know how when you have something big to do that you want to make really great, but you have very little time so you keep putting it aside until you have the time to devote your full attention to it? And then that NEVER SEEMS TO HAPPEN? Yeah. That’s where I’ve been lately!
You may have been under the assumption that I’d taken off on a (well deserved) summer holiday, but alas no. I seem to have filled every nook & cranny of my summer with work or school or family stuff, which means I haven’t had much time to sit down & write a full recap of all the things that have been bubbling in my brain. Blog posts currently in draft form because they still need photos to be edited or uploaded: the fabulous time I had at Folk Fest, the odd (but interesting) art projects I’ve been working on in my summer art class & my new favorite reality show – Bravo’s Work of Art. So much to talk about!
I hate blog posts that complain about not having enough time to write blog posts, but that’s exactly how I feel right now. I have a 4 day market starting tomorrow (eep!) & after Folk Fest, the Cagey Bee studio is looking pretty bare. I’ve kicked the locket factory into high gear over the last week or so, which means every flat surface in my house has been commandeered. Fortunately my mister is out of town for a big family reunion, so I’m only driving myself crazy. 😉
If you’ll indulge my craziness for a moment, here’s where I’m at right now:
I’m worried I’m going to run out of…well, everything.
I’m annoyed that I’m still waiting on supplies to arrive in the mail.
I’m exhausted from lack of sleep, the heat & just plain working my tail off.
I’m really craving some days set aside for painting.
And I’m feeling guilty for neglecting my blog.
As dull as that probably was to read, the thing that kills me about not having time to blog is how cathartic it can be for me. Just writing out all of the anxiety & stress I’ve been feeling lately immediately makes me feel calmer. Probably not a good business move, I realize, turning one’s blog into an emotional dumping ground, but still. Bear with me people.
Deep breath. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
