How an artist gets bored
Wednesday, March 06, 2013
My desk is covered with junk. This is the problem I am faced with after every project. I had several projects in the last several months that took up the whole desk. One was Christmas cards. Another, shortly after, were Valentines. Then I had to make a care-package-kit for a friend going on a mission trip. (which included 10 cards, but I used regular stationary instead of handmaking each card.)
And then my husband did the taxes.
And I had to fix the thumbs on a pair of mittens.
And then... and then... and then...
So not only is the DESK covered but the floor as well.
Yes, I could clean it all up. I could turn on some Ray LaMontagne and pull my hair back and organize myself into oblivion. But, there's a few problems with that. One, I'm really cold, and therefore more inclined to snuggle up with the dog than clean. Two, if I use all my energy cleaning I won't have any left for my next project. Three, it's spring break, and I simply do not want to clean.
In all honesty I will probably get to cleaning as soon as I've eaten dinner, but we'll see. I also simply can't decide the most efficient order in which to organize or clean anything. And yes, they have to go in order. This is my problem with almost everything in my life. If I can't decide what to do first, sometimes I get so overwhelmed I just end up doing nothing.
So there you have it. An artist at her worst. Now I just have to decide what I want for dinner.
