FINISHED Sugar Skull Mask
Unless this is your first time reading this blog and you never look at post dates, you probably realize I'm in a post drought. I found out at the end of this past school year that I was being transferred to another building in September. I felt a bit like my work-world tipped onto its side and stayed there. It's not terrible, the people are nice enough and I still have a job, which is what really counts, but you never realize how much you depend on your work friends until you no longer have them around every day.
I've offered to help my friend troubleshoot ideas for costumes for the play she's doing, and I also somehow volunteered to help out with the next play at my daughter's former school. I'll be honest, I was going to volunteer anyway, but it seems I had signed up before I was sure what I was signing up for. Not complaining - it's nice to be appreciated. Work has not started on either play, however.
In the mean time, my husband alternates between complaining and being extremely tolerant of my "art shit" (I like to call it, "craft crap") around the house. There must be a lesson in here, somewhere, I'm just not sure what it is.
So I go about my business, adjusting to a new school year, my new work digs, and an undefined blog focus, and I try to finish projects I start, which is a new rule for me. Keep going, even when you hate it. I'm getting better at that. Sometimes I even like the result, even though it's not what I thought it would look like.
Hummm… maybe that's the lesson I was looking for in this.
