Having a family helps keep me sane. I'd imagine that if I lived alone I would spend days on end making and creating things locked away and fully immersed in my projects. Maybe I would even create my 'magnum opus'. I am though, getting increasingly frustrated that I can't spend more time engaging in creative pursuits; reading, writing, painting, drawing, embroidery, sewing, making jewellery etc. I don't even think that all the hours in the day would be enough time.
I started to create the ATC (Artists Trading Card) above quietly and mindfully and then 'ruined' it by rushing it through to completion. This seems the way that lots of projects are going lately. If only I could dedicate myself to just one craft genre instead of wanting to conquer all!
edited: off topic: This afternoon it looks like Gizmo has a burst abscess and what looks like puncture wounds on his ear. I just hope he hasn't been bitten by another cat again - but it is looking that way. I thought that trips to the vets were done for this year but not so.
