It's such a busy time of year for me. Workshop prep, making flight/hotel arrangements, travel, teaching, unpacking and then getting ready for the next trip. I try to schedule at least 2 weeks between workshops and that gives me just enough time to clear my head, get some household things taken care of and start prepping again. I basically hit the ground running every time I come home. Unless you teach workshops at retreats, you can not truly comprehend the amount of time it all involves. Not to mention trying to squeeze time in for sending in class proposals for upcoming classes, coming up with new workshops, ordering "stuff", photographing work, let alone trying to do a little journaling. I am late answering emails, I don't keep in touch with dear friends as well as I would like to. Most understand, some don't. Phew, I get tired thinking about it all! Really, I am not complaining because I absolutely love every part of it, but often I have to put a lot on the back burner, and many things just end up not getting done at all. And I guess that's just the nature of this sort of life. In the meantime, I made some badly needed time to do a little journaling this morning and it felt really great!
Just a reminder that I will be in New York City next week at "The Little Bird Studio". I'll be teaching "The File Folder Journals" (This workshop is full) and "The Journal Obscura" (Still 2 spots open in this class). I am looking so forward to this event. Last years trip to New York was one of my favorites.
