mmmm yes it is, and after a couple of hours lying awake, it was time to distract myself from thoughts turning over and over in my mind....although of course I will suffer for it tomorrow when I have lots and lots to do.
Still it gives me a chance to visit and update this much neglected space. So much is happening and yet the focus at the moment is out of kilter. My part-time job is currently taking precidence over everything else after the busyness of craft fairs pre-christmas, so now I have hours to catch up on. However I am loving it and would really like to tell you more about the work I am doing in future blog posts, so that is my plan.
Also paper-work and tax returns are priority unfortunately. My promise to myself this year to be organised and have them completed early has not really worked out as I would have liked but a few days of burying my head in numbers and forms will see them out of the way...
.....and then, I will be free to get back into the studio and get on with the work that really matters to me. My aim for this year is to be successful at creating a much needed balance between my creative life, my part time job and my home life with each being equally important. Balance - my word for the year I think! I think I need to feel more freedom in my ability to take time to create and work on my work and ironically I have figured out that this means being more in control of my time and how I use it............. it just takes me a while to figure these things out!
Above is a latest 'character in progress' - she has taken a while but I am determined to get her finished this weekend.
For now, I think some meandering writing in my journal should help me empty my head of churning thoughts to enable me to get at least a little more sleep before getting up time!
