November Notes

Here we are entering the month of November.  I'm glad to be turning this calendar page.  October was filled with me trying to do things I 'used' to do and giving up on them half completed.  Grrrr!  After my last 'stuff it in a box and forget about it doll' I realized that I still need/want the safety and joy of 'box lid art'.

At this point in my life I'm not pushing myself to continue working on something I don't enjoy anymore, just to say 'I can do it' *smile*. 

Over my creative life I have tried many, many things.  Some have been successful (to my eye), others not so much.  Some went the way of the weekly trash pick up and others I still have sitting here in my studio, cheering me on.  For now I'm ready to stay on my 'boxed' in path. 

As for the month of October, I so enjoyed being outside.  Crispy cool mornings, slightly warmer, sunny afternoons.  Heaven is: shuffling through the dried leaves while I walk the roads of our community; watching huge amounts of rain outside my studio window; standing in the sunshine knowing that soon I'll be wedded to our heater; and lastly letting myself start a project - stop it in mid stride - and not feel guilty.
