One day last month we were at the chiropractor's (hi Dr. Bill) and Olivia said, "My mom is always on the computer." At first I disagreed with her and then I realized that this is how her sweet young eyes must see me. The truth of that knowledge hurt me and made me feel guilty, a deep raw kind of guilty...time already seems to pass so quickly and this is certainly not the way I want to be remembered. I am the mom who gently combs the tangles out and reads the stories using silly voices and lays in the grass staring up at the stars.
After taking a good look at my time online I sadly had to admit I really am on more than I need to be. It is so easy to drift on the computer from blog to pretty blog. I had become a blog addict! So, this shift in my time was good for me. Renewed, I am back to try again, determined to find a better balance.
As far as making art goes, I did play with making necklaces from old jewelry bits and I melted beeswax and made a simple collage. Inspired by Lauren at Alice Lands I used the original photographs!
Today Olivia and I went to Michaels and I bought some pretty blue glitter (Martha S.) and some colored staples, some blender solution for my alcohol inks. Tonight after Kelly and Olivia are sound asleep I think I will find some time to play.
Wishing a sweet creative day to all,
