It's kinda like that...

...rearranging your sock drawer, experimenting with the part in your hair, watching paint dry, etc. This is why you hadn't heard from me in a while. I'm a finisher. When I start a project I like to start knowing that I won't have too many interruptions before I finish. I like a job done. So, while I've been taking care of Uncle Robbie, I've had to be at home and do small projects. My studio workroom still looks like vandals hit it; it's still too overwhelming. Oh there are plenty of small things I could be doing like cleaning drawers and closets but that's not fun. I'm not looking for Disneyland here but I want to feel that I've accomplished something and making dinner, although a newly found chore, it doesn't exactly float my boat. I've been cleaning away in anticipation of the caregiver coming into my house and seeing the inside of my fridge and potties but still had to do that little something to make my world a little brighter. The truck. I hadn't even decorated my truck properly! I'm so embarrassed. But I put that right today with the right inspiration of having spilled a 32 oz. coke in the console of my truck the other day. I collect acorns and that's where I keep them and they were sticky floating everywhere. I cleaned that truck in and out and made a little what-I-usually-use-as-a-candle holder jar for the acorns, stuck a stick of incense in it and placed it near my Carl Larrson tray and my sweet nest in the cup holder. How fun is that? Well look for yourselves. If you are having any problems with artist block, please let me know and I will think of somewhere you can do something. There are always sneaky places where we can decoupage and add glitter to stay sane. mmm...
