I’m so close to the end of the school year, and all the Spring shows are finished – there’s a light at the end of the tunnel…and summer vacation is zooming up faster than I can realize!
I’ve been listing my goals of things I want to accomplish in my little world of art, ( participating in the Modish Biz Tips monthly goal meet-up) and this is really helpful! I’ve had such a tremendous let-down of energy this week, that I couldn’t even think about steeping into the studio to make something. So I’m now in a zone I’ve been in before…the zone of “Oh! Finally some free time! I don’t know what to do!!!!!” Usually this zone is a depressing one, because I want to fill the space with so many things that I can’t get started on anything, and I piddle those moments away! BUT, now, because I’ve been piling up those goals, I can now just take a look at them and start working away at them! Who knew that having a list of to-do’s is just as important when you have MORE time as when you have LESS time! Phew!

I’ve added some long term business side goals to the list, and some of the goals are a bit vague, but I’m hoping listing all the things I’d LIKE to accomplish (well, in my art business world…I have some decorating, house cleaning goals as well…) will help me recover from a creativity slump faster!
Here’s how time flies –
It seems like just yesterday that this 8 year old:
