time to myself is a jet plane...



I am looking forward to the weekend, I am going to make some soup and make some art...

I have been feeling quite emotional the last few weeks, I am not sure why, but one thing I know is it's happy emotion.  I am just so pleased to be where I am, who I am and what I am doing.  I look back to the me of a year ago and I really feel sorry for that old Katherine, I just want to give her a big hug and tell her that things are going to be ok...

We are nearly at the end of the last week of the e-course.  Where we are talking about burn out... the ebb and flow of living a creative life.  I think one thing that really has helped me with this is to think of life as a 50 cent mixture of lollies (sweets).  To make sure your week has a bit of everything in it. I think of doing my art as a jube, my family are jaffas, my friends are jelly beans, time to myself is a jet plane etc... and I make sure there are all of these in my week.

You're always so poetic when you write your blog - I love it! So pleased you are in a good place too; seems like this course has really got you focussed and positive. From one of your jelly beans in the UK ;) xx
