the way it is, and why i love it

so i keep coming here, with proclamations that i am in fact really working, with excuses for the lack of new stuff, and promises of more pieces soon. but really, what i need to say is that i do not know when i will have new pieces for you. and here is the reason why:

i made a very definite choice to have less time to work and more time with my girls. and that is what is happening. and although it is an adjustment, because i do value my time in my shop so very much, it is the right thing and i am so happy that i am doing it. this month is especially crazy because we have been gone every weekend, glenn will be gone this weekend, and then my BIG TRIP starts one week from today!!!

but the new schedule makes it so that two mornings a week i have special dates with just junebug. and two afternoons a week, i have them with hazel. it is wonderful. and although some of that time is spent running errands, etc., it is special because we are together. also, (as those of you who know me personally already know) i really struggle with keeping my house clean; that is something else i am focusing on. so i am just going to apologize one more time, because i do truly wish that i was producing new stuff for you, but at this time i am not, and that is the way it is.

thank you all so very much for your patience, and just think how fun it will be when i DO have new things for you! it will be an occasion! don't give up on me...

I totally relate, it's hard to keep juggling everything without dropping any balls (oh, if you could see my house right now). The house right now is at the bottom of the priority list, the kids will remember all of the fun things you did together, not how clean the house was (at least that's what I tell myself). The work will come when it comes. Take care.

Sounds like you have your priorities in the right place to me : ) Enjoy your family, home, and studio time as it comes!

family is first and fore-most, especially the young.
and, look at those faces! *beautiful* outside because of what is on the inside, "fed" by you!
