The Holiday Rush

Halloween is just a few days away and I know the rush is on.  I have to say this year is one of the most creative years I have had in a long time.  We moved into this house about a year ago.  my studio is now in the house rather than a detached building.  In ways this is bad, BUT I love it.  I can be part of the family and still be working.  Though my children have a way of sneaking in here.  Boy does it get really creative when short people with vivid imaginations enter the space.  We may have to get a bigger space when they get older.

Creative outlet

Fall is my favorite time of the year.  I have a love/hate relationship with it.  First of all I have to admit this is when all of my creative juices run on overload.  I could look at a pile of laundry and get 3 ideas, load the dishwasher..another 2.  My brain goes into hyperdrive.  This is awesome.  I keep my sketch book with me to jot it all down...

then comes the hate part.

 I have so many ideas that there just aren't enough hours in my day.  Not only are my juices in overdrive, but it would seem that me non-crafty friends are too, because they will ask me to make something for them (to give as gifts), boy talk about pressure.  Do I sound like I am complaining?  Really I am not.  I love the challenge of learning and doing something new. 

But who needs sleep anyway?  There is always the Thanksgiving holiday to catch up on some zzzzz's.  I will just use the turkey as an excuse.  :)
