..time flyes

...its allready Friday again and I still can not start with my Free Friday project again.....and my slow down intention has not gone very far either ;-(

I am soooo busy right now! My kids have stared school again this week.
My daughter will take part in a little theater play the second grade is preforming for the first grade, when they start school on Saturday this week.
My son left his old school after six years and started grammar school. It was very exiting for all of us since this is a big step! But when they were introduced to the school everything went really well: they had a wonderful school band playing Irish music for the 7 graders and their parents and he is in one class together with two of his old friends.

I am doing a lot of overtime at work, since the autum trade fairs started again and my bosses are gone. So I have to stay in the shop for much longer than usual.

I am also working for my very first market. It will be on the 3rd of September and I still need to finish a lot of the things that I want to sell. I am very exited about this since it is the first try to see how my work is selling.

I also had a phone call the other day: a request for a workshop! Of course I could not say no to such a good offer! So I need to prepeare that as well.

Apart form this ( as if that would not be enough already!) I am still trying to get my act together and work towards a more simple and more orderly home and organization for our house. But I am more reading than doing about this right now.....and will go back to do more, when I have a bit more free time!

Sometimes I just need to breath!!!!

I need to slow down.....!

...this butterfly got lost in our appartment on a rainy day. After the photo shooting I let it fly out again...;-)

It illustrates very well the mood I am in right now.
I have so many things I want to do and a lot more I need to do. But I feel like I have to slow down!
I just got a wonderful book called "The creative License" by Danny Gregory . It is about how to draw. Not that I am completely new to this, on the contrary, I was quite good at drawing for a while, did hundreds of drawings while I was at art school, but I am completly out of practice!
And I was really shocked by some drawings I did the other day....!!! I need to practice my skills more or I loose them. This is basicly why a bought this book. And I have been reading most of it already!!!
It is a wonderful book and does not only talk about drawing, but a lot about live and how we tend to not really live, by not noticing anything around us. I know it is true for me. I feel like if I notice to many things I will not be able to do all the things I need to do. I think I have to do a lot of reajusting and slowing down, when drawing, when working and generally in live! Our time on earth is so short...und its worth taking in every little detail!

The other thing on my mind right now is to simplyfy and clear my live. Litteraly and figurativly speaking. Abby has a wonderful thread on her blog about this, too!! here and here.

I have been working on my studio and have done quite a bit of cleaning all the clutter but there is still so much more to do.....and the kids will have to help ,too!
