TRYING TO GET BACK TO WORK

After a very busy year, I didn't realize just how tired I was, until I started resting.  I've been resting, watching movies, baking, clearing my mind, etc.



As nice as it feels, I know I have to drag myself back into work mode.  I started going through some of my vintage metal, doing a little painting, etc.

I'll be working on listings in my Etsy shop this weekend.

Plus, my shows will be starting again at the end of February.  I know that time will fly by.

So, back to work, with a bit of lazing around thrown in here and there.

  1. Rosemary, you couldn't do enough lazing around if you tried! Your creativity wouldn't stand for it. With that said, I can't believe how the holiday seemed to have fairly flown this particular year. I think it's probably because we crammed as many visits to different family members as we could. We enjoyed each and every one of them, but upon getting home, I was exhausted the moment I sat my suitcase down.
    Since January 2nd, I've been looking at my desk and the stack of articles I must edit. I've even picked them up a time or two. I have promised myself I will complete the editing on 2 of them tomorrow. Little bites at a time; I hope you do that as well. I am so excited to visit your Etsy shop next week. Peace.

  2. Resting is good for that creative mind of yours and just think of all the new things you'll come up with while you're "resting"!!!

    1. Yes, I've used gesso and chalk paint on silverplate. Getting the silverplate as clean as possible (maybe a little sanding too, depending on the paint you use) before you paint is the main thing.
