Sometimes it’s really hard to be an overachiever. Take this week, for example. It’s Spring Break and I’ve needed this mini vacation for weeks as I’ve juggled two classes and my business obligations. So, what am I doing? Working. I was up at 6 am this morning obsessing about my latest project which is to incorporate fold forming as part of the design. Yesterday, I spent all afternoon making a little sterling silver wheel no larger than a quarter. I’m planning on constructing a purse out of copper and having little wheels on the bottom. This morning I made a model out of file folders so I could gauge how large my sheet of metal should be and get an idea of how it will look when done. Well, it looks like a wagon so it was back to the drawing board. Now, I think I’m going to do something more rounded, like Cinderella’s coach – my niece will love it!. This afternoon I’m going to Sarah’s studio so I can start raising this piece. I’ll work on wheels tomorrow.
It’s not all work. I did get my KC trip last weekend and we’re going to Des Moines on Friday. I’ll have a good week. At least I don’t have to go to class on top of all this!
One response to “Spring…Break?”
Well I know you didn’t get your over-achiever qualities from me – no way am I a TYPE A, MULTI-TASKING, OBSESSIVE, ANAL-RETENTIVE personality and IF I were, I would never have passed that on to you – if I had, I wouldn’t be THE PERFECT MOTHER! Are you gagging yet?
I tried to respond to your comment last night about researching family history but it apparently didn’t go through. We need to look at that together – at least on my side of the family. Too bad we don’t have Aunt Dorothy as a resource any more. I’m sure all the wierdos came from your dad’s side! 🙂
Have fun working on your purse – I can’t wait to see the finished product.
