It's a wet day outside and I feel peaceful.
The baby is asleep, the dog is curled up on the sofa and the boys are at school. Dave is at work too, so it's just me and my thoughts.
I have a long working week stretching out ahead of me and my brain has been racing with so many different ideas.
I spent the weekend clearing out the garage, purging, cleansing; it felt so good.
Out with the old, in with so much possibility.
It's so exciting to make New Space.
I have so many plans.
My head feels like my garage today.
I've cleaned out some of the clutter and now tons of new ideas are whizzing through my brain.
I have so much that I want to do.
So much capability.
The mind of a creative person can be overwhelming at times.
Dave fondly calls it my 'butterfly' personality; never content with doing one thing, I like to do several things at once. Nobody but me can see the logic in this.
I'm never content with doing one project in one go - I need to space it out, let it grow and develop. I want the best possible outcome and sometimes the only way you can see something from every angle, is if you step away for a while and come back to it.
I usually get there eventually.
Today though, I am happy for the peace. I am happy for the raindrops on the window and the chance to stew a little.
Even us fast-paced, over-achieving creative heads need some down time...
Oooh, look, some fabric....
