Hello Bloglies and a very warm welcome to my new follower Christine.
I went out to my firm's 'Winter Party' on Friday and as a result had a bit of a late one. I was very, erm, 'tired and emotional' by the time I got home - I personally blame the poisoned carrots **smiles innocently**
I've given myself the weekend 'off' from houseworky type duties. I find this very difficult to do and always seem to feel guilty at sitting and doing "not-a-lot". I always feel like I should spend my weekends cooking, cleaning, shopping and washing but this weekend I've played hookey from the lot of it - apart from a quick top up food shop this morning. I spoke to a friend yesterday and we were both bemoaning the fact that we feel that we have to justify being a little lazy from time to time. After a busy working week, no-one should have to justify a little R&R time. I decided to use this feeling as a prompt for a page in my art journal.
I really do struggle with 'art' - and I mean that most sincerely (folks). What I see in my head refuses to transcribe itself onto paper and I often end up feeling annoyed and frustrated. I'm trying to use the journal for the purpose of 'therapy' and escapism however and so I'm just going to have to learn to be a little more kind to myself and accept that whilst I am no great artist - art journalling means that there are no expectations, limitations or boundaries. Once I get over that obstacle in my head and stop with the silly comparisons to other people's work, then perhaps I'll feel more able to express myself a little better.
Any - this the entry I created based on the feeling that I really have enjoyed just being at home this weekend.
Hope your weekend was a good one.
See you soon! :)
