As you are all quite aware i now have a 3 houses, a garden potting shed scene, brooms and brushes, looking glass, 2 sculptures, potions, plates, pots and an ever ending list of miniatures on the go. All of which are half done... lol.
So what have i done about this? Nothing, other than start a batch of sweets and some potion ingredients for jars etc.
I have to laugh and i suppose its a good thing to have so much on the go. Having so much means that eventualy i will get them all finished and ready for sale.
There are other bits and bobs i've not show or forgottn about also on the go and oh lol if i didnt laugh i would cry... lol.
So today my plan was to get on with it, work fast, turn the computer off, dont answer the phone, nor the door. To ignore the washing pile and forget about the hoovering and just sit at the desk and work, work, work.
Well, that was the plan, but as usual the door knocked. Pats my thirteen year old came home early on a half day, hubs came in early, the door knocked and in they came and so far i've spent quite a bit of time on the phone and emailing, researching and doing the washing, hoovering and a spot of cooking.
But here's some sweets i've put in jars today to have a nose at. They need the witchy/wizard labels stuck on and perhaps a little more of something magical.
I'm also making the wooden counter you can see into a witchy/wizard sweet counter.
I don't know how other people make so many miniatures and how they juggle all that comes their way on a daily basis. I just don't seem to get anywhere.
In my head i have all these wonderful plans of action on achieving it all, i set up the day so i have 3 or 4 hours to work, i plan ahead and schedule everything like i'm in the millitary but still it keeps going wrong.
On a happier note i started another sculpt last night. A little goblin was in my head and couldn't wait to get him started. He was going ever so well then i made a mistake, grew tired (it was late) and suddenly he was a right mess and so rolled him back up into a ball to start again another day.
