I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my inability to focus on one single thing. It’s kind of driving me a little insane with all of my piles of unfinished projects around the house. It’s not just that- I am sometimes a little unsettled that I can’t just embrace one type of craft and stick with it for a while. I’m all over the place with my arts and crafting. I’m making clocks, boxes, mirrors, stamps, bags, clothes, and jewelry. And then there is the experimental vegan cooking thing I like to do every once in a while, where I’ll only make things I’ve never tried before. I get into these phases where I’ll only want to do one type of “thing” for a few weeks, then I’ll just toss everything to the side (unfinished or not) and start something new. Like right now, I’m really into sewing. I have 2 skirts, a shirt and some rompers for my babe all half way completed and am feeling the itch to start painting again and even making a little jewelry. I sometimes wish that I didn’t have so many interest so then I could actually get some stuff done, focus on one thing and just be really good at it, ya know? Am I making any sense? I’ve tried focusing on just my painting, then I get some kind of brain block and I can’t think of anything to paint, or I can’t decide on which colors to use, or which canvas and it ends up becoming a big stress of a mess. So, maybe it’s good to go back and forth? I don’t know. By looking at my house (that needs to be getting packed up) it’s not so good.
Sorry for all the rambling, I actually AM starting to pack things up for our move, which is what got me thinking about all this stuff to begin with. Since I am in the process of packing up my art, I thought I’d share some of my clocks before I pack ithem up. I have horrid vissions of them getting ruined in the move. If I post them then they will be preserved as photos at least. You know what I always say, “If you don’t have a picture of it, it never happened.” Ha! I only say that because I have a horrible memory.
Anyway, here are some of my clocks that I have made.
