always finding new art

As the kitchen "remodel" is coming along, I am starting to look at the other rooms around the kitchen and getting ideas going for them.  Next up on the remodel list is a new kick wall for the bar and new light fixtures.  But as I was searching around for light fixtures, I took a minute to catch up on my google reader.  Check out this art giveaway I found!

what about me?

Hello blog world, hopefully you're still hanging around awaiting my next entry... yeah right. Who am I kidding?  You probably got tired of waiting, left, and now I am talking to myself.  Oh well.

I have decided it's time for me to do some evaluating and thinking in my life. I always take on more than I can chew; I always let my plate get a little too full; I never know how to say no.  I tend to avoid conflict, but at the same time, I can be biggest bitch I know. It's awkward thing for me to find that balance I so desperately need. I really need to cut some of these "extra curricular" activities and focus on what makes me happy.  But of course, I get right to the point where I am ready to sat, "Ok, I need to step down" I get that overwhelming feeling to keep doing it.  

I want to make more time for my art, and my family, and my happiness overall.  I really need to work on myself more before I keep working on everyone else at this point in my life.  I so badly have the nurturing gene in my body.  I yearn to make sure everything and everyone is taken care of, but who is taking care of me?  Doesn't seem like anybody is most of the time.

Let the cleansing and growing begin...
