Wake up. Get ready for work. Eat breakfast. Get to work. Design books for 8 hours. Come home. Make dinner. Run errands. Relax for a bit. Take a peek into my lonely studio. Crash for the night. Repeat.
I really do enjoy my job, but one of the most frustrating things about not having time to do new art is... *sigh* not having time to do new art. So I've devised a plan: When I have all these creative ideas running through my head, I stash my thoughts as tiny thumbnails on post-it notes or whatever other piece of paper I can get my hands on. Then they end up here, in my Secret Stash folder:
And hopefully sooner than later, I'll get back to them and make them real. So far, this method has been working well for me. It's all part of my journey–figuring out which path I want to take and what things in life that are most important. Art has always been a part of my life. It's what makes me the most happyand I feel the most comfortable with. I know that this journey is leading to something bigger than me, and I've just begun to realize that I can't always answer the "what-if's" or "I-don't-know-hows". I take one step at a time (sometimes easier said than done) and trust that I am exactly where I need to be at this moment in my life.
