Wrap Up - March

March wasn't a bad month but it wasn't terribly great either. I will have to put a bit more effort into things for April. Here's what I did accomplish this month:

  • completed two commissions
  • designed and made new bunners which are now in a new shop
  • read one book - Peter Pan by JM Barrie (yeah, I'm just now reading it)
  • made Easter ornament for doll group swap
Here's what I worked on:
  • Bless This House top panel
  • second pair of socks
  • 14 out of 16 days of writing 350 + new words those days
  • cut out summer blouse for me
Working really hard not to fall into the 'shoulda, coulda, woulda' trap. Which by-the-way is pretty easy to do. It's very difficult to think about what I have done and accomplished because I'm always thinking I should be doing more. Like Mt Everest more. Really? It's just me. I have done better at cutting myself some slack. That is also a work in progress. Next month I will have to kick it up a notch. I've got three commissions to do, new work for an art show on the 27th, keep working on my manuscript, and start thinking about Halloween and the Christmas. Okay, now my head hurts. 

Hang tight!

Happy April, dear Wendy! I don't know, it sounds like your March was pretty productive. Congrats on completing those two commissions, and I have yet to read (or even watch) Peter Pan! I mean, I've seen different versions but never the original Disney one. I know, it's shameful since we're in it! :P

Hope the art show goes well! Sounds exciting!

Thanks Wendy Lu 2! I've seen all the Peter Pan movies and read the Disney version but never the original. Better late than never. LOL

I think you got a lot done too. I think you are too hard on yourself- but I think it's a trait a lot of artists have. I don't consider myself an artist but I know I am always feeling guilt that I did not get more done and comparing myself to what others get done. It is not a productive way to be so I promise to work on mine and you work on yours- because in my opinion you rock and you accomplish tons! ♥

Thanks Kim. I am hard on myself and I'm working on not doing it on a regular basis. We'll both work on our projects together.

It's Spring!

Yep, I think it's finally here. Had the first huge spring storm early this morning. Woke me up. Thunder, lightning, heavy rains, and hig...
