Wannabe...



I should be packing. I have managed to weed out all our unwanted/unneeded belongings over the past few weeks. I have made several trips to the city mission to drop off outgrown clothes, unneeded household items and furniture. I have reduced much of our things to fit tidily into cardboard cartons, stacked neatly, awaiting transport to our new home. What I have NOT done is pack up my studio. I planned to tackle the job today but as I wandered in here with a fresh cup of java this morning my eyes, once again, fell upon this poor abandoned "wannabe". It has no purpose yet. It sits there and pleads to be brought to life. I am sick of packing. I am tired of dealing with buying and selling real estate, lawyers and technicalities which one must deal with in order to move. I want to sew, I want to draw, I want to create. Fall is coming and I would like to be elbow deep in pumpkins, black cats and ghouls. Instead I am being called to duty by corrugated cardboard beckoning to be filled with my threads, fabrics and art supplies. Everything is moving so slowly. We need to repair a few things before we move ahead to our closing..maybe I have time for just one little wannabe??? hmmmmmmmm........

Ahhhh I went through the same thing last year with our moving to an apartment. Creative withdrawal sucks....take an hour & make something...you will feel better. Hugs Susan

Your little Miss Wannabee is calling out to you.
Take a break from the moving, let your creativity flow and bring that stuffed piece of cloth to life!
