Besides photography I've been crafting again. I started out with a duct tape recycled book. I liked it so much I made another one out of cards that contain all of my artist trading cards and inchies. I've done several swaps and now I have them in one place. My books look like a beginner made them but I am happy with them.
I have about a gazillion yards of fabric to use up before I can buy anymore LOL.
My garden is calling me.... spring is right around the corner.
Now time is an issue but soon I will be retiring. December 29th of 2013. I have been enjoying shredding and tossing old documents that I truly don't need anymore. Old resumes, old performance appraisals (yeah I kept those), workshops I have written and revised over the years. Ancient grants I'd written years ago. So I am now down from 2 four drawer file cabinets at work to 1. By December the only thing left will be what belongs to the company. What an empowering experience.
I re-read some of my journals and couldn't believe what a whiner I was. I've vowed to keep my new journals filled with momentos, happy stuff, pictures etc.
Anyway, can't wait to get on with it. I was so worried that I wouldn't know who I am without my job now I can't wait to be the real who I am 24/7. I'll miss some of my clients but they will move on with or without me.
