November 9, 2013 Living Blocked I don’t usually post on the weekends, but since this week has been pretty different than my average week, why not keep the trend going? My mom was in town last Sunday through Wednesday helping me make decisions on wedding details. Well, catering, cakes and flowers, I guess those are a bit more than details, but nonetheless, it was a whirlwind. We had seven appointments in two and half days and by the time Thursday rolled around, I was completely exhausted. Not only was I tired, but I was sort of in a strange place mentally. I thought I’d be relieved that we’d gone and met with so many people and that I had ‘checked’ things off the list, but in fact I felt a little overwhelmed with having to make another big decision. Wah, wah, I know this is dumb to complain about, but it is a lot of work and now I know why people just have someone else do it all for them. On top of that, I needed to finish up a very few things in the blog design world before the end of the week and I was having a hard time getting motivated and I was having a bit of a creative block when painting on Thursday. And when I really started thinking on why I was feeling sorta blah yesterday, I think it was that creative block of sorts making me internally mad. For whatever reason, the painting I’ve been working on and not really loving was making me so frustrated! It’s normal to have days like this, but why why does it make me so annoyed?! I like to think for the most part I’m a pretty laid back person, until I have one of these days. But, I did my best to just take a step back, not force it and what do you know, around 11pm last night I got inspired and pulled out the paints — watercolors too! Now, I’m really excited and don’t want to eat or sleep, just paint. I’m trying out some new techniques and playing with some new tools! I’m hoping to have some new work up in a little over a week, so stay tuned! On that note, have a wonderful weekend and I’ll see ya back Monday.
