I have a problem.

Ok, I am the first to admit that I have a serious problem - I have AADD.  Everyone knows what ADD is, but I have ARTIST-ADD. 

I was trying to think of what I should work on next.  I envy the artists that can do the same thing over and over again.  I have tried pretty much every form of artwork out there.  If you look at my website you will see just a small part of the things that I am into, not to mention the stuff on Etsy and Artfire. 

This past week I worked on:
1) fabric bowls

2) jewelry - both clay and beaded

3) Setting up a new site  I am starting a site for the jewelry that I have collected from other countries, plus some of my silver jewelry that I make. It is still a work in progress.  (My collections are taking over my house!) 

4) recycling Christmas cards - got the edges all cut
5) clay Christmas ornaments

6) fused glass - pieces cut and grinded
7) started on a watercolor
8) photgraphed work and vintage stuff to sell

9) started a crochet scarf

That is not to mention all the stuff that goes on being a mother and a wife... oh and the zoo.

(He looks like me screaming.)

I have found that I can waste soooo much time trying to figure out what the next thing I should work on.  I am lucky enough to have places to work on all of these things, so it is not a matter of cleaning up and pulling stuff out.  The only problem is that the clay and glass are at my studio and the rest I do at home.  That means that the days I don't go to the studio I am into everything.  I need to focus! I need help! Is there some sort of 12 step program for people like me?


  1. It seems you can do wonders with your hands...

    Just grab something and mold it into whatever you desire. Remember, manipulate and twist!

  2. If u find the answer to "focus", please let me know. It's hereditary, u know!

  3. I love this. I am the same way, it is really really hard to focus--even when I try to carry on a conversation! How bad is THAT?
