If I could have one super power it would be the ability to add time to my day! I can't believe how much stuff I have to do and so little time to do it in. Even at work - my inbox gets higher and higher (and for those of you who have seen my desk, you know that can be pretty high!). I have 2 reports on my desk right now that need to be done, but other, more urgent things keep getting added.

Home is the same way. Too many things to do and too many places that I should be. So, what do you think I'm doing? Prioritizing and doing the urgent things first? Scheduling and doing things in a timely manner? No and No. Here's what I'm doing.

Nothing like art to make you lose yourself for a couple (or 4 or 5) hours!
I've been painting for about 12 years, but I don't have a dedicated painting space now. It takes so long to get everything out, paint, and then put everything back up, so I haven't done much. Then I found colored pencils. I love this!! Just sit down and work. It's great! No waiting for paint to dry, not a lot of stuff to have to store.

This was a lesson from Marian Jackson, but I didn't get to the class, so I had to work through it by myself.

Hopefully, I will get to take some more classes at HOOT (Heart of Ohio Tole convention) this year. I really love doing this!!!
