I know that guilt and regret are a huge waste of energy.
Consequently there are things I would have done differently in my life but I stamp down my regrets into a black little ball in the bottom of my soul... only rearing their ugly heads on pathetic drunken new year's eves or unhappy birthdays. They aren't generally too much of a problem.
Guilt, however, I let have pretty much free reign. Lately, with my back to school "new lease on life", I found that the guilt was keeping me from getting motivated or maybe it was running me in circles.. and Accomplishment is what this rediscovered structure is all about for me. I needed a solution.
So, I started a paper list.
The Craft Guilt list.
THE PROJECTS I NEED TO DO.
The ones that haunt me.
So I am finishing up
the little things that need finishing.
Like sewing up and posting this doll I made from Michelle's contribution to the Handprinted Fabric Swap.
( seriously, How cool is she?... And wait until I dig into the the other pieces!)
Like making the dog for one brother, so that both brothers could have one. the first dog ... from JUNE, was so Lonely. Just Waiting to Be Played With.
and making a dog for my nephew to match the one my niece has.. (and then there are my other two nieces..)
and the people I owe swaps to..
and finishing my sister's birthday present... from JUNE...
and mending her handbag from last years birthday...
Oh, there are so many more. But the list is helping.
3 crafts down...
