Busy as a bee


Field of Mustard

I’ve been working on all sorts of projects, and playing catch-up. This watercolor is for a watercolor postcard project for the Belle Papier Yahoo Group. I always muddle through with watercolors, the final piece never quite matching the image in my mind’s eye.

I managed to clean my desk off yesterday, so it now doesn’t look as if another piece of paper on top of the pile that was there will cause it all to collapse (not only the pile, but the desk too). I’m a pack-rat. I have a hard time throwing things away, and further, I purchase MORE things to add to my “collection” of things “just in case” I’ll need that *specific* item when I’m working on a project. Although I’ve been trying to curb this instinct, it works to various degrees.

My to-do list resembles a grocery list. It’s long and varied… everything from tax prep, to laundry, to shopping, to art projects, to doctor’s appointments, to scrubbing out the toilet. Long. Sometimes overwhelming, but for the most part I have to shut that off, because otherwise I’d just short-circuit and not do anything.

A spontaneous ATC swap opportunity presented itself a while back, from someone who read my blog. I’m about to send these off to Arizona.

Well… off to make breakfast.
