Stop touching it! Doesn't Chloe look like she's saying that? Well, ok, maybe it's just me thinking that because I screwed up my blog and other things lately. Remember when you were a kid and you had a scab, or a zit, or something else that you could not leave alone and you kept touching it and messing with it and your mom would shout "stop touching it?" Well lately I feel like I need that shouted at me daily. STOP TOUCHING IT!!
For some reason, I keep messing around with stuff that I like perfectly fine to begin with, thinking I need to improve them, change them, change myself. Searching, asking, seeking, only to go and make huge mess and something that is far away from my true self.
My latest blunder was messing with my blog background. While trying to "play/learn", make a pretty background, instead of having the nice clean, neat, tidy, non cluttered background (which is me), I blasted my blog banner into oblivion! Damn! I was so mad! Thank goodness for my dear friend, Roxie. Roxie created by beautiful banner for me and I had to get her to bring it back. Thank you Roxie!!!!!!!!
I have done the complete run around and around thinking about my art and what I like and what I want to make and what I want to sell and what people will buy and yadda, yadda, yadda. When all along, if I would just "stop touching it," and realize who I am and what makes me happy, I would be well ahead of schedule for the holidays instead of in this ridiculous mad rush to get ready for a 12 day shop hop, a big 3 day holiday festival show, a wedding, two pet sitting jobs and Thanksgiving. Not to mention a full time job!
With that said, I have some new things to show you coming very soon. I've "stopped touching it," and have gotten down to business on my bliss. Here's a hint. A Quilted Cottage Christmas.
