Trying to get ahead...

...but feeling so behind.
I begin each day with the best of intentions.
Really, I do. It's not for lack of trying. Life is
taking center stage this week and I am called
upon to play the Ringmaster. So I leave with you
a peep show of sorts, of the cast of characters
who lie in wait undone, as I wrestle with the
main events of the day.

We seem to be in the same place Melissa , but those characters will wait patiently as mine will until their time has come to make their grand appearance !
In the meantime good luck juggling life :0)
julie, juggling life too right now

I know exactly how you feel :) Getting ahead and getting caught up... I don't know if I will ever get there!

Love your Halloween creations (well, all your creations, but I just looooooove your Halloween ones!)

I'm right there with you! Life has a way of pushing art aside sometimes...

Thanks for the peek at the new goodies - can't wait to them finished!!

A ringmasters job is never done! You're peep show was certainly worth the look! Fantastic!

I hear ya sister...I'm always saying, "I SO wanted to get this...or... that done, but alas, real life got in the way."
Like you said, it's not for lack of trying.
Hang in there!

I am feeling EXACTLY the same way!!! I am forcing myself to ignore any distractions today and sit down and create!! It's just so hard...so many things going on!
Good luck on your juggling act :)!

Love seeing what you are working on always~~

reading through your comments it looks like you are not alone, lol! life has a way of distracting us from what we want to do.
Keep plugging away, that's all you can do. Looking forward to seeing what you are working on next :-)

that cast-o-characters looks like such a spooky delight!!

*retro-rudolphs* said...

I can definitely relate to the feeling, but in my case most of it is procrastination.

On a brighter note: I don't know why you are feeling so behind because I'm seeing so many goodies just waiting to be dressed in their painted pretties! The proper attire takes time :)

Love the peak into your circus, I have a strong feeling that your life is artful even when you aren't in the studio. In the meantime may your ideas bubble and brew until you are ready to bring them to life!
