That is my word.
missing out on now.
I've spent so much time refinishing furniture for two shows a year and putting off playing with kids.
I've spent so much time thinking of what to do instead of doing.
That is over.
I plan on capturing now, being in the now, participating in the now.
I want to see the kids do all their things.
I want to enjoy life as it happens.
I want to capture a more calm household- less clutter.
I want to capture better health by following my diabetes regime strictly.
I want to capture a better body by being active.
To sum it up-
I want to CAPTURE life.
To do this some things must change and it involved some tough decisions.
There is only so much time in a day and so much of it was being used to do projects for two yearly shows, then storing them for the date.
Tattered & Timeless the business, well she is done.
No more furniture refinishing for sale.
The only ones will be for my house or a friend here or there.
No more sales or big events- sorry Cameron Street Fair.
No more consigning at stores.
That's not to say that creating will cease. I could not survive with out a creative outlet.
But now, I get to create for my home and my family.
I can actually finish some much put off projects and I can start teaching my daughter in all the aspects of crafting and do so with her.
We have a move coming up in June so I'll have a new abode to play with.
It will be military base housing which is the same as a rental so it will be a whole new adventure for us.
We have not had to ask anyone permission to do what we want in our house for over a decade.
This will be a challenge but one that should be fun.
Yes, I plan to capture all of life this year and not just watch it happen but be a part of it.
Here's to a great 2013.
