Set scene: Sunday night, me propped up on comfy pillows in bed – my favorite office – pecking away at a work related e-mail while hubby folds clothes. Then, suddenly and without warning, I find myself aaaaa-lone, abandoned in favor of the big TV in the living room. So, with my husband watching a man flick and me needing human contact, I reach out to you, great void (can’t help the You’ve Got Mail reference…) in the hope of procrastinating work just a few hours longer. Which reminds me of this, a great line that I found on Pinterest recently that basically describes my life:
I love this maybe because the one thing I love more than my work is to procrastinate by doing other work! Confusing? See, I’ve got KidsArt, which is my official ‘work’, and when I’m bored of that I can paint or sculpt or write, all of which can also be categorized as ‘work’ – painting and sculpting falling into the paying kind of ‘work’ and writing falling into the keeps me from going crazy kind of ‘work’.
Until – here comes the sneak peek! – I came up with the most perfect super-exciting-but-why-do-I-always-create-more-work-for-myself idea ever. Welcome into the world, KidsArtKorner.com, the blog dedicated to all things art. I am officially launching the site tomorrow, but YOU, dear reader – if you check your e-mail on Sunday nights – are in the know a good 12 hours ahead of schedule. If you find any horrific spelling mistakes or unprofessional slips of tongue please let me know. It’s characteristic of this here site, but *hopefully* not so for the other. Read it over, let me know what you think, and please oh please offer suggestions if you have them. I do hope you like it, and if so then go ahead and subscribe – I promise to make it worth your while 🙂
To wrap it up, what I think this really means is that now I have TWO wonderful ways to avoid the things I’d rather not do. Brilliant, if I do say so myself!
