Creativity

I got signed up with my first craft show of the year. This show with Macaroni Kid in Lafayette will be great.  I think it will be warm, well warmer to Indiana people that are sick of snow. :)   I always love the excitement leading up to the shows.  I always go through my inventory and think about what to take, what to hold off on, etc.  It reminds me of everything I've made but then I start to get new ideas on crafts.  The problem with creative people is we can't stop sometimes.  I'm always wanting to make and create. Looking at a scarf reminds me I wanted to try more infinity scarves this year, which reminded me I should try making more accessories like bags, and so on it goes. I may go check on something else and then see my seed starting supplies and get distracted and next thing I know, it's 11 pm, and I'm up to my elbows in potting soil and paper pots.  Maybe it's not just creativity, but an inability to slow down.  I am always thinking of what to do next and have to remind myself to slow down and enjoy the moments and that I can't do everything- even though I secretly think I can.  I'll check out Facebook and see everyone talking about lazy days and how many marathon shows they watched on Netflix.  I just can't do it. I'll get those marathon shows in, but it's usually on my computer while I'm in my craft room.  Don't get me wrong, I have my nights after a long day at work and I'm drained, emotionally and physically.  But... for the most part, I enjoy keeping busy.  Even now, I just realized it's past 10 and here I am sorting and pricing things.

I guess it is time for me to get to bed.  I have some meetings tomorrow at work and it's also crazy hair day so I need to track down my zombie wig from our Thriller Routine.  Anyways, if you're free on Saturday, come to the Kid Fest.  I'll be there keeping busy, of course!
