Eek! It has been a very long time since I have taken any creative time for myself. Summer is half way over and I actually looking forward to fall so I don't have to feel guilty about working through the summer anymore. This summer was my first in 4 years that I have worked outside of the home and been away from my kids. I love my new job, but I miss my kids and my garden so much. The kids are having fun in summer camps, but I can't help feeling guilty that they are not home. I miss lazy summer mornings, coffee on the back deck, gardening, trips to the beach and library, and strolls down Church Street.
I just applied for the Women's Festival of Crafts happening in November here in Burlington and I hope to be involved in the Art Hop in September. This is all a kick in the butt to get my act in gear and start designing some fall/winter accessories. I have an obsession with chains and fiber right now and I can't wait to start creating.
For now I am going to enjoy the last 30 minutes or so of daylight and actually sit down on my back deck and enjoy my over grown gardens. I'll weed you soon gardens - I promise.
