As I was looking at the calendar recently, I noticed that it was February 25th and I said to myself “it has already been two months since Christmas! Time sure is flying by!” But, then I realized with a shock, that means its only ten months until Christmas!!!
As I looked around my craft area, I saw all of the things that were never finished in time for last year’s Christmas season. My painting classes had taken priority over the things I had wanted to make for our house. In addition, to make matters worse, they are so full that I normally do not get all of the pieces that I use as class examples completely finished because I am helping students instead. So, you can imagine how much is just sitting there looking at me and saying, “finish me…”
This is a yearly occurrence for me. And I know that as soon as the sun starts shining and the days get warmer it gets. Therefore, this year my goal is to finish all of the painting items before spring arrives. Since we never had an official cold Wisconsin winter this year (so far) I figure I better hurry up.harder for me to get into the “mood” to paint winter things. Some years I need to play Christmas songs in July just to fool myself in order to get in the proper state of mind to paint snowmen and other Christmas designs; All the while trying to block out the sweating from the oppressive humidity and heat of the summer. 😉
As any crafter will agree, we get bored easily and so we have multiple crafts going at the same time. Next week, I plan to blog about my unfinished Christmas themed cross stitch projects and a project that I had forgotten about for several years that I would love to have finished in time for this year’s upcoming Christmas decorating season.
What do you have as far as ongoing projects? I want to hear!
