Mmmm, what's next?

I have a list.
 I have a very long list, which I add to everyday, sometimes twice a day.
Is it ever going to end?
Am I ever going to reach the last one, and then dust my hands off and sigh with relief??
Where is the switch 'off' button, so I can get a good nights' sleep, and not feel a slave to my creative side of the brain?
I cant follow my list, because I keep coming up with new ideas, which I have to do!
I am a thinker, sometimes a couple of days can go by, and all I have done is think!
I write and draw my ideas in great detail, and when the moment strikes, I go into my creative mode at full speed!
Sometimes, I have 5 projects going at once, and other times, 10!
I have been up since 3am today, and have nothing to show for it.....
except a headache!
Lately I ask myself this question...Is junking good for me?

*Im having a clearout on ebay, with the hope of seeing my verandahs once again for Christmas!
Theyre all listed as buy it now, and are bargain prices, so check them out!


  1. HEY you sound like i do!!! lol. two sues...two sets of problems...hahaha.
    i have the same list too and for years i've been meaning to get to the end. it doesn't happen, does it.
    i'm with you. i keep saying i need an intervention. but hey...if i didn't junk, i'd have some other crazy addiction. i was addicted to exercise years ago and i that was worse. it consumed me. the quest for the perfect body takes even more energy than digging thru the salvage piles, so i say.....go visit your favorite junk place and just look at others creations and get ideas and shut yours down for an afternoon. that is what i do. i just go get ideas from other sources to quiet the crazy ones in my head.
    good luck....oh...junking is good for you...look at that wonderful fabric and lace. yum....feeds the soul. hang in there.....i'm going to bed right now and I WILL SLEEP i hope. i'll think about something like cracking almonds and watching birds eat.
    take care

  2. HI Sue, oh lists!!!! I have a never ending one, gets longer and longer by the minute

  3. You silly girl...
    I can relate, because I'm just like that too.
    It's a generic thing. I'm sure your Mom or Dad is the same.

    Happy Thanksgiving my friend.


    Jill xoo

  4. goodness, I could have written that myself, I have the same things going round and round...

    I want an off button, I'm finding it quite hard to switch off at the end of the night at the moment which is not good

    on the junking question, I have to say that yes junking is good for you...I think there can be worse hobbies in is a great addiction, just a shame it fills up your house and garage

    off to have a nosey at your ebay stuff


  5. Ahh thats what i always say why cant i be normal.To be creative is a blessing and a burden and never more than at christmas,
