Our first prompt is about Time...
I mentioned before that if Shimelle (or any other crafty shop owners) were selling 'Time' in their shops that I'd buy bags of the stuff....it's the one thing I seem to be lacking in terms of crafting. I have inspiration and ideas coming out my ears, stash to beat the band, but....no time? Or is that just my usual - procrastination? I think about the time it takes to take out my stash, the time to come up with an idea (didn't I just say I had loads though!), make something (I take too long to make a layout...too picky, too fussy), the time to tidy it up.....and that's what puts me off. It's awful, because I love it; I love spending time crafting. It relaxes and energises me at the same time, if that's possible!
I've been doing quite a bit of personal development? lately - the Enneagram, etc. Mainly to do with work - how to work more effectively, etc, etc, but it turns out my personality type (9) is one who tends to put things off.....You don't say! and makes excuses to themselves! So one of the things they recommend when you are at work is lists (to be honest I make loads of lists) but especially to PRIORITIZE things on the list. Aha! So I am prioritizing my blog, my creativity and Shimelle's class for the next 5 weeks. Prioritizing me, in fact.
And now, a photo....I don't really have one yet that links in to Shimelle's prompt, but yesterday was my Grandad's 80th Birthday and so that's kind of about Time passing - 80 years! So all the family gatherered for a little party. Here's almost all the grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Oldest age 80 years, youngest aged 8 months....... There's the passing of time, if ever you saw it.
