Yeah. Here I am, blogging. I have a million ideas floating around in my head, some of them are good ones too! I have ideas for cards, workshops, swaps, projects, cooking, and present buying for Christmas. I have a raft of ideas for some things at work and having booked the work Christmas party, I have a few ideas for that too. It would seem that blogging about all these ideas is easier than getting them out of my head and doing something about them. I've been talking to Mr Dunnit about my home time-management skills. I don't think there's a problem at work - you just tackle the work and that's it. And I have learned that I need adequate down time, and I very often don't allow the crafty moments to be down time. Because I have to have a deadline to motivate me. I have lists. I have dates and I have allocated things appropriately. I think.
I think one of the things that makes me procrastinate so is that I'm sort of putting off the pleasure of doing it - whatever the 'it' is. Perhaps because it will take two or three goes at it and in 40 odd years, I know myself well enough to know that if it doesn't work first time, I'll be......miffed, let's say! So Mr Dunnit simplifies it in his massive-understatement-type-summing-up-way, a way that makes me realise that I'm never going to be a big girl crafter really - he says - 'why don't you enjoy the process instead of just the accomplishment?'
I can't explain: I do enjoy the process AS LONG as it has a finished, accomplished, thing, item, piece. Now is that petulant or impatient? You decide, I have a problem with choice too!
Part of the tidy up has yielded these three items that don't belong to me - if you were at the Card Marathon last weekend and have missed them - let me know........they were in seperate baskets, so they are unlikely to belong to one person!
