Tomorrow is the second Dustbowl Arts Market, and all my things are packed and ready to go inside the trunks.
These are my favorite pieces I made, this time. Remember the treasures I told you I found in the abandoned house a couple weeks ago? The white signs are cabinet doors that we took from the home.
I was too tempted to keep them for myself, but lately the stress of clutter around the house has made me terribly uneasy.
Tomorrow all my preparing for the last couple months will be done, and I'll start two new projects.
One: a video of our Summer, full of little bits and pieces of memories I have been saving. I have been playing this story in my head for weeks.
Two: our house. I feel overwhelmed at the amount of things sitting around. Some days I just want to push it all into one huge pile: furniture, books, tables, piles of mail, shoes, and rugs. And I just want to push it out the door and live in an empty room on one cushion on the ground.
I feel this way about a lot of things in my life, lately.
I think at the end of every season I feel so stale and uninspired by the monotony of my day-to-day. I feel it something awful in the last few weeks of Winter, but the last few years I am also starting to notice that I have this pestering itch for the seasons to snap and for the burn of Fall to be all around me. We've slept with the windows open the last few days and already I feel life moving through me, again. Filling me with ideas, stories, and big plans for the future.
These were from last week, the day before I broke out in hives. We were out on a friends boat, enjoying the last few weeks of Summer.
Happy weekend, friends. Any wonderful plans?
