More Time on the Clock
As you already know from my recent posts, school starts next week. I've got bags and bags of school supplies that need to be organized, several loads of laundry to be folded, dogs to be walked, kids that need to be fed and entertained, football uniforms to be washed, and school volunteer tasks to be completed. Oh, and I need to get to the gym at some point. There's tons of other stuff I should be doing, but I'm just blocking it out.
I've found that when I get overwhelmed with the day-to-day stuff that needs to get done, I crave more creative time. My latest escape is a delightful e-course I'm taking with Marisa Haedike and Creative Thursday called "Commit to your Creativity". (Like I have time for that.) So the assignment for this week was to step outside my box and create something in 3D using natural and/or found materials to build a piece. (side note: I learned about this assignment on Tuesday night around midnight-ish while checking in on the blogs I follow.) Exhausted from a long day with the kids (Chandler, incidentally, is out of town for the second week on a row), I laid in bed thinking about what I could do for this assignment. I knew I didn't have a lot of time this week to devote to my creative side and I wished I had more time... More time... That was it! So last night, I created this.
Wouldn't it be great if we had a couple of extra hours in the day?
