Ok, I quit making New Year Resolutions a long time ago because I never kept them. That being said, I am going to try again this year (I feel the stress already!). My New Year Resolution is to blog more often - There, I said it!!!
I absolutely LOVE reading other people's blogs and then I end up thinking about my own poor neglected blog. I don't know why I procrastinate so bad when it comes to writing in my blog - Maybe I just don't feel like I have anything interesting to say - at least not interesting enough that other people will actually want to read it. But, I am going to put my feelings of inadequacy aside and write in my blog at least once a week. (I'm starting to sweat!)
Ok, here goes:
I decided before Christmas that I really needed to take a break to regain my sanity. I made a decision to stay away from the studio and not think about jewelry making for at least 2 weeks. That plan isn't working out so well because I keep having these "ideas" bouncing around in my head and then I think, "Oh, I'll just take a minute and jot this down", and then I'm on the computer looking for supplies..................you get the idea!
I'm already 1 week into my break and I haven't gotten a single thing done around my house that I was going to do. I had really BIG plans - paint the living room and kitchen, catch up on mending, make curtains for the dining room and living room, refinish pieces that I want to sell in my booth at Oregon Street Antique Mall......... The reality is: I've gone shopping (a few times!), I've done some crocheting, reading, jotting down jewelry ideas, sitting with the dogs, and messing around on the computer. I have slipped a little cleaning and cooking in there so I don't feel totally worthless!
It has felt soooooooooooooo good to just be kind of lazy! I always go full speed 10-12 hours a day and I am actually enjoying not feeling like I ALWAYS have to be doing something constructive.
Hopefully I won't get too used to it!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!
