...and go

Sometimes I'll think and think about something, planning out how I'm going to do it. I'll lay in bed at night letting it mull over and over in my head, dreading that I will never be able to do it as good as I want. I'll make lists, lots and lots of lists. And then finally (usually days, sometimes years later) I will just do it. It's not always perfect right away but it's almost always easier than I imagined in my head. That is the thing about creating, it only get better with practice. And it's not just making art. Sometimes it's something as "simple" as reorganizing a closet, or creating a better recycling system.

On Friday I dived into the art making process and I completely surprised myself with how much I ended up accomplishing. It was so much easier doing it in real life than it was in my head. It was a great start to what will hopefully be a very productive three months.

    I have a friend that does something like that.... She will find something that she wants to buy and then she thinks about it and thinks about it and ponders it and wonders if she should buy it. Days and days and days go by and it is on sale and she has had her eye on it for a long time and it is perfect and exactly what she is looking for and she thinks about it some more. And puts it in her shopping cart. And, no wait, she has to think about it some more. And it goes on sale some more and is practically free and she STILL cannot commit to purchasing it. Do you know what I am talking about? Does that ever happen to you?

  2. Oh man. Did it yesterday with a $5 bottle of nail polish. Oh by the way it was $5 before my employee discount. and I thought about it for so long. So so sad.
