A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

I'm Just Plain "Tuckered Out"

And that's not too funny since my last name is "Tucker". I feel so tired, but, mostly, I just don't feel motivated these days. While I realize Easter is upon us, I don't think it's sufficient excuse for spinning my wheels rather than finishing one simple project. After all, there are tons and tons of supplies on hand.

Here I am in the middle of completing two neck accent pieces and having several hair accessories to deliver to my niece's salon. I'm spinning my wheels, wondering if I'll feel any differently after Easter has passed. But I doubt it.

How is it for you? Do you sit down in the middle of a field of daisies and not pick one? Do you sift sand on a beach full of shells and not pick one up? Do you look through dozens of cookie recipes but never decide on which one to bake? Do you run past the string of stores and never stop because you can't decide where you'd like to shop? OH, get real!

I'm going to bed before I purchase another item on Etsy. I should be creating, not buying. I just purchased some supplies but can't seem to get into a project with the supplies I already have available. What's a person to do? What's that saying by Mary Englebreit..."SNAP OUT OF IT!"
