The past few weeks have been beautiful, but tough. Focusing on deadlines can be draining for myself and my family even though it was worth the amount of work that was put in. Now that most of my deadlines are out of the way I am left dry and empty. I was at a cafe shop today and felt the effects of all work and no play so I decide to put work aside. I drove around Seattle for hours enjoying the foggy state it's been in for many days. I came home and played games with my son before heading out for a photo-shoot. I took breaks at the shoot itself to capture the things that captured my heart. Instead of working all evening like I typically do I went grocery shopping with my family. We made a choo choo line at the store and picked out chocolate for the ride home.
Now that I am home, I feel thankful again. I feel like me and I feel like my cup is overflowing! This is the place I continually want to be. Tomorrow we will take a walk in the park, throw stones at the river and make pizza. This is where true inspiration comes from. After a week of this I will be busting at the seams, ready to create. Add in a weekend trip to California and you will be pleasantly surprised on Wednesday when I get back.
Also, I full version of the tea cup watercolor illustration will be in downloads. I will be adding new content to the download tab for a limit time only as I am in the process of finding a printer so that I can sell my work at a better quality.
