|My faithful companion, Annie, on her perch |
while I make a creative mess in the kitchen!
It's just time to clear off the kitchen table and island and bring everything upstairs to my cluttered craft room. I tricked myself into getting this done by inviting friends for supper. Procrastinating for this long is now over...
It's not that I'm just sitting here doing nothing...but regular, every day things get pushed way to the side while I create stuff. This is nothing new - I've been working this angle since the '70's with a brief pause in the '90's when I actually worked at a big corporation. It was time to get benefits and a regular check. So when I retired, I once again was possessed with creating...creating messes throughout my whole house. No, I mean projects in every room - on every flat surface...regularly.
It's not even Thanksgiving but the shop I supply crafts to just had their Holiday Open House. I am not complaining in the least bit but its still a good four weeks to Christmas and things are still flying out of the door and into people's homes.
Job security...but a messy house. All of this is changing tomorrow. It will be a Saturday filled with hauling things up the steps and into my almost filled craft room. Sigh!
I'm so lucky to be so busy doing what I love to do...making creative messes all over my house...except in the kitchen - starting tomorrow.
