I found that even with four days to myself there was still never enough time to get everything done on the list. The things that kept getting moved from list to list each day but never crossed off, were the creative things that I wanted to do. For example work on my "about me" page on my blog. This is something that I have wanted to work on since taking Susannah Conway's Blogging from the Heart class. I even have notes for it on Ever Note on my phone, but yet it remains undone.
Finally yesterday, my busiest day of the week, I made the time to get something I really wanted to do done.
Kim Klassen's new class Start to Finish started on Wednesday. I was very good and watched all the videos on Wednesday night, so I knew what I needed to do for the first assignment.
Yesterday morning I set up my still life on the front porch.
Yesterday afternoon after a haircut and color, I had time to load my images onto my laptop and begin the culling process. Which by the way, I always do cull right away. I learned the hard way on that subject with thousands too many photos in iPhoto and my computer froze up, now I delete the bad ones right away. Once in a while I regret deleting a photo, but not very often.
I watched Kim's lesson and worked on my photos at the same time. It felt so good to be savoring this creative process and transforming my photo before my very eyes.
I have only gone through all the steps with one photo so far...
What I found this week is that I need to balance household chores with creative pleasures and I will be a much happier girl.
