I am seriously considering throwing out everything I own just so I don't have to pack it.
Do you ever feel the need to just create? Something? Anything? I haven't had time to pursue anything artistic ... pretty much since we moved back to Pennsylvania... I used to paint often. I still have a piles of canvases that I never used. And a few awaiting a mound of gesso. I tried to get over the fact that I couldn't create anymore by baking. I got pretty good at it too. But after gaining and losing and gaining mass amounts of weight in the last two years- my desire for baking has gone down the tubes. (If for some reason you haven't heard me whine about this before- I lost almost 50 pounds while I was pregnant with my son because I was so sick.... and then lived on a steady diet of junk and gained it all back, lol!)
Anyway, I tried scrapbooking (I will still try to keep it up, but it doesn't really feel like creating to me...). I tried teaching a watercolor class last summer- which was fun, but not what I want to do. I want to make something out of nothing- create something honest. I tried to pick up and draw a few weeks ago- and found that I had no idea where to start... it was almost as if I forgot how.
I have always been interested in quilling. I have thought it was a beautiful and delicate process. I used to do it as a child and didn't even know it had a term- I thought it was just a fun way to waste time. 3D doodling even. I think I would like to take a class on quilling- or at least get a book and try my hand at it for real. I think it could be really pretty.... (And I can already think of some art deco designs I would love to do..)
Anyway, I will use this desire to create and turn it into a desire to clean, lol!
So what are you up to today? If nothing, do you want to come pack boxes with me?
