Busy Times!

These days I hardly know what I'm doing- 
Busy times, but time filled with good things.

My dear sisters-in-law came from California 
and Wisconsin for a family visit...

We all traveled up to New Hampshire for our nephews' graduations...


Back home, we visited the Wenham Tea House and had a nice lunch.

Our downstairs bathroom renovation was completed...

And now onto renovations on our upstairs bathroom and kitchen!
Demolition begins Saturday!!

Where is creativity in the midst of so much activity?
I'm searching for it, but feeling distinctly uninspired!!

While my "sisters" were here, we spent time around the dining
room table cutting up magazines and making collages.

These were mine.
It's a fun activity and can actually be meditative in a way.
I wish I could focus on some artwork. I'm getting that scary feeling that I'll never again make 
another worthwhile thing! Say it isn't so!!

I have committed to doing a show/sale in October, so I can concentrate on that.
I need to set up a work area where there are no workmen and where it will be cool.

So...all good things, and I'm grateful for that.

Hope your June has been going well!

Love the Dog Laugh collage! How uplifting!

You will, don't worry. I think that's a common fear for creatives, but we all can use a break to experience life for a while. Enjoy the summer. Good luck with the renovations!

Judy, rest assured you will continue to create your whole life. I have no doubt about that, so don't fret. Just think of it as a new way to get inspired. Sounds like you've been as busy as I have been. I keep glancing at my unfinished painting sitting on the easel in my kitchen. It's hard to ignore. Put Lisa is here for a long visit and I have been relishing our time together. Have a lovely summer.

Hi Judy!! I'm sure you will continue to create, I don't think you're so easy to stop!! ;) I really like the downstairs bathroom, looking forward to see the upstairs and the kitchen, too!!
Have a nice time!

Lovely things happening in your life right now Judy. I adore the room in the top photo! I am finding it hard to fit creativity in at the moment too but maybe we should just go with the flow for the time being! x
