I finished the blanket yesterday and today I was obsessed over making a bib. It was all I could think about. How will it do it? What fabrics? How big? How will I stuff it? Than when I completed the bib I started obsessing over the cute shoes I could make to go with the blanket and bib from the tutorial at stardustshoes.
It is so easy to become consumed with making things. I love to get my brain going. I love to think about all the things I could make. I have found myself wide awake hours after going to bed with ideas running through my head. This is not good. Is there a balance? Can you live the creative life without becoming consumed by it?
I went a couple months with out having the time to make anything and I can really see the difference in how I live my life with out it. When I am not constantly thinking about this project or working on that one, I free up hours to spend on other things. Other more important things like family. It is sad to say that when I start some project or even just start planning for one my family is the first to be pushed aside. All I want to do is escape in to another world and create create create. So again I ask, How do you find the balance? I dont feel like I should give up this part of my life but I have a hard time finding the balance when I am thinking about or doing a project.
I guess it’s a good thing I am in school right now. I force myself not to think about making things due to having so little free time.
Anyway here is the bib and blanket. The pics are awful and do not do them justice. This set would be cute with a pair of matching shoes but I will refrain.
