Inspiration

I've spent the evening cleaning out a box labeled Photo Crafting and I am inspired to get rolling again creatively. I found a photo taken at a Scrapbook Convention back in the day (?) when I was with Romar. The photo is of me in front of the DIY Channel cameras demonstrating the Kaleidoscope Kit I had pulled together (goodness, I was chunky). While the spot ended up on the cutting room floor, it was still a peak moment for me. I pulled the photo out of the box and taped it up on the wall next to my Marathon Bib numbers. I'll be keeping my eyes open for the four color brochure of the Sugar Eggs I made for Easter/Spring. I ran that business for three (maybe four?) years. It didn't make much money. But, I was in the black for two of those years. It's time for another great moment.

I know, I know, I've got quilts to finish and a book that's two thirds done. I just finished the book for my mom of our travels in Europe we took a couple years ago. Like I don't have enough on my plate. But, when I am creatively excited life is just so much more interesting. I still want a guitar again. And it looks like I'll be moving. I still need a job to keep a roof over my head...

It's one o'clock in the morning. I don't stay up this late unless something is interesting enough to hold my attention. There was a time when my job was this interesting. There was a time when I was working my own business this late into the night. Tonight is was paper. Just little three inch squares of paper. They look so cool now that I've fussed and folded and mooshed them all together!

I just want to know...where's my trust fund? I do get tired of spending my nights completing job applications.

  1. PS: I do wonder sometimes if I'm "manic". All I can say at this point is at least I'm not depressive. The balance seems to be when I sleep for three days in a row...which I've got to stop getting upset with myself about. Sleep is good. It gives me a chance to dream...
