Do you ever feel like time is racing by and that you are falling behind. You know the old saying "the hurrieder I go, the behinder I get". I have been feeling that way lately. There are so many things I want to accomplish and they aren't getting done.
My six year old granddaughter created this and my daughter photographed it. It made me think how we are all just trying to live our lives from A to Z. There is so much to do every day and sometimes I wonder if we set our expectations too high.
That is so definitely me on some days. I feel like the bag lady has struck. Have I been getting anything accomplished. Well, of course. I've made some pillows for my new line.
but, frankly it is going slower than I would like. The creative process seems to take longer for me. I have to search through jars of buttons to find just the right one.
I have to put fabrics together and then look at them for awhile to know if they make me happy together.
and because my concept involves being eco friendly, I have to hunt down my materials; old quilts, vintage linens and feedsack fabrics. It takes more time than I like. So I have been working on creating happy thoughts along with my work. When I start to feel bogged down, I think about a moment in my life when I felt perfectly free and happy.
Remember what it was like to be a child and to feel completely uninhibited. There was just pure joy in the simplest things. I can remember being about ten years old and riding my bike through town and singing at the top of my lungs. Some man drove by and started to smile when he saw me. At first I felt a little embarrassed, but then I realized how good I felt and that I had made him feel good too. So now I conjure up that feeling when things seem to be getting me down.
And when I get my knees fixed, one of the first things I plan to do is get me a bike. SO if you see some crazy lady riding a bike and singing at the top of her lungs, that will be me.
