Whilst I haven't stayed away from the computer, or indeed, entirely off the interweb, I have stayed away from my blog for the whole of the weekend. Because I firmly believe that if you've nothing interesting to say, you shouldn't bother. Obviously, most of my posts are the exception to my own rule.
I spent 3 hours on Saturday, crafting for nothing except the fun of it. Of course, 3 of the 4 things I played with are unfinished....that's the trouble with crafting for the fun of it in Julia world. It makes me start things that have indefinite drying times; generally, in workshop mode I have to avoid over gluing, glittering, painting because a two hour midweek workshop doesn't allow for too much drying! Or is it because I'm just plain horribly impatient. Hmm. That's more likely I must say. Because the drying time means I have to find something else to do and then I get absorbed by the something else and lose interest in the newly dried. I think. I can't completely own up to that because I haven't had a chance to sit down at last nights painted stuff yet. I watched TV once I'd painted last night. In between coming back to see how it was doing. Which meant that my last waking moments were spent touching up because it had finger prints on it from being jabbed to see if it was dry, and then cleaning my hands (and teeth, of course!). Honestly, how childishly impatient. Ah well. I'll show you at some stage. Don't hold your breath or be impatient with me, I can't bear it.
My heart is heavy over the horrifying natural destruction wrought on Japan. If you are affected in any way at all, please know that I hold you in my thoughts and hope that my small actions of contribution and fraternity will help you to understand that whatever else, you are not alone.
