i need to create

so today was a more of a home improvement day...painted the house and took care of some boring household chores. but tonight... i have plans to mix up paints and dyes to add to the studio for future projects that have been dancing around in my head for months, some batiks, some greeting cards, oh i just don't have enough hands to keep up with my plans!

i'm very proud of how the white walls turned out...makes this old house look more alive and clean and livable...i'm very tempted to keep the couch in the middle of the room and the dollhouses on the table...

i have to get these children to bed so i can create something! assata is on the floor in my studo making mini kites, rasul is whining to hang from my nipple as usual, but it can't happen right now, i'm blogging! dhani is in his daddy's studio, hanging out with him as usual.

i'm going to finish this late dinner, so that i can make some of my ideas come true tonight before i get to sleepy, or, as i often do, pass out while i'm breasfeeding.

I so identify with how you feel. I have so many ideas and I know I have most of the materials I need to start making but it can get so overwhelming. Where to start? And sometimes once you do start things work and you move through things, sometimes its very slow and you feel deflated. My mum often reminds me that I am too hard on myself and expect too much...I should set myself realistic goals and above all stop procrastinating!! Ha! if only it were that easy!!! Between blogging, and spending time online + making its very hard. I think the product though comes first. Focus on that, making the best you can make and making + uploading lots of it even if you arent getting many sales (these will come). Once you have a good base of stock you can spend that time promoting. *Sigh* Keep your chin up! You'll get there.
