A Few of my Favorite Things!!!!

As I was creating little pretties, I'd finish what ever I was working on and set it a side.  In this case the finished pieces ended up in a nest of honeysuckle.  Now, as each piece landed in the nest, and I started creating the next little treasure, my mind was frantically trying to I make a whole village to go with the church, and what should I  add to the paper cones?  What do I have, in my baskets and buckets, which has taken over my work space,  that will enhance the crown and the cross?  As my thoughts traveled out into the universe, I glanced at my nest full of little pretties...Well duh! It looks perfect just as it is!  

So why do we beat ourselves up over a solution when it's almost always right in front of us?  I know it's a trivial little thing, (what to do with the pretties), but maybe if I let my mind wonder out of the box and let it tread into the silence of space...let go, I'll remember that there is nothing that can't be solved. 

So, you know what I'm going to do after I finish my Santa s? (Yes I'm almost finished with them. )  I'm going to knock down a wall.  One that does not hold up the house!

I keep thinking how everyone gets theirs done, and I feel like I don't get anything finished.

I need a cowboy to lasso my mind in from the craziness. I can't get anything done this week.

Oh I know what you mean, Lisa, have to push ourselves.
