So Many Directions

Liliya-8x10 Mixed Media Painting

I have so much going on lately.  It’s so hard to keep my head straight and keep up with what I need to do.  I need to get ready for a couple of shows, plus I have a couple of projects that I’m planning right now.  Sometimes I feel like there needs to be three of me.  Making a list really helps me, but sometimes making the list seems so time consuming.  Do I really have time for that too?  Do you ever feel that way?  I need to somehow get grounded and find my bearings.  Really, I need a vacation, but that’s not possible, so what’s my alternative?  I should probably just lock myself in a room and sit quietly for a few minutes, but at this moment, even that’s not an option.  Wow. 

So, I guess the best thing I can do is get to work and push through it.  My plan is to get everything organized for Saturday’s show tonight instead of waiting until the last minute like I normally do.  I think that’s why I always walk around with a feeling of panic.  Not sure why I do that to myself, but for some reason, I just can’t help it.  It’s like a sickness.  Procrastinate until you can’t any longer, then have a panic attack.  You would think I would learn my lesson.  We’ll see what happens tonight!

I’ve got lots of new work coming up to show you so stay tuned.  I’ve got lots of new stuff in the shop, so make sure you go check it out.  Great things are coming!  


  1. I am struggling with these same issues and I don't even have a little one at home to take care of any more, so I feel for you. It is good you at least recognize some steps that might help (preparing the night before, etc.) and are acting on them.

    I LOVE your painting above - really, really nice! Have fun at your show tomorrow.

  2. I know what you're saying, Jacquie! Best wishes for Saturday's show! You'll get it done. Just try to give yourself some quiet time to take it all in and just be if you can. You'll feel better in the end I bet.


  3. Looks great Jacquie! You have been so busy. Good work!
