A Peek Behind the Scenes
Summer, has been hard, and exhausting.
Kidlets are currently cleaning the house. Â They are not impressed with me, nor I with their destruction. Â Walls are being washed. Toys beingÂ put away, etc.
This is long overdue. Maybe it’s the changing of the seasons… the changing of medication. Hitting a breaking point? Combination of all the above? Regardless, thingsÂ have to be put to right and today is the day to get a start on that.
The girls will be back to school in a few short days… then no one will have the energy or time to work on it.
I have a couple of commissions to fill(!), isn’t that cool? I have sat down dozens of times to write and don’t know where to begin. Maybe that entry will still be written… maybe those drafts will be abandoned, but those words are stillÂ aren’t ready to fall into place, so…. ::shrugs:: Will have to push past that and talk about other things.
Family passed away recently. Was soÂ weird being at a wake for my grandmother… waiting for the crowds to clear and see my grandfather in the middle of it, but her husband passed away a scant year before. So surreal.
August has been a blur of poor sleep and willing myself to make artwork that won’t come. But today some of my supplies came in the mail (Glass baubles. Eyelets to hang dragons from. USBÂ sticks that are running and testing in the background…) The excitement certainly has perked up my mood, and balancesÂ againstÂ the friction of two siblings I have to referee. I look forward to working with the new supplies and testing some designs out for sale. Will help with my commissions. :)
Be my cheerleaders? Leave a word of encouragement? I’d like that.
