Homemade Christmas Tree This year

Blurt was out of school an hour early as it was the last day in. So we got straight down to work on making the tree this year. This one uses a washing basket a printer tube, a roll of wallpaper, a bucket, some daubs of paint and a splatter of glitter. Quite impressed that we managed to get it all done in one evening but now we need to work out what to eat as we kind of forgot about that. Well now we have somewhere to put some pressies. I guess I'll have to go lightly on the laundry as my tree has been made out of it! But it hasn't been harmed in anyway and on the twelfth day I can get it back again.

Have any of you got creative this Christmas? I'd love to hear about it!

A Creative New Task–Hub4Trades

I’m currently working with Funicula Ltd and they have a new project on the go that has kept me busy image making – so I thought I’d lash together some of the hundreds of images that are required for the development of the Hub4Trades website. I’m quite sure there will be stacks more too!
Yummy graphics. I’ll be sharing some more on this and some of the other things I’m up to at Funicula Ltd

Taking Control of Time

cat63I was mulling over yesterday that things had started to spiral out of control in regards to time and tasks. This involves not only work related tasks but also family matters, housework and just sort of everything really. I think it hit its true full potential last night when I ended up exhausted in bed but with a severe inability to sleep. This in itself wasn’t unusual – hey it happens especially when you think you have had an awesome idea.
I did fear that at some point today I may just find the time to curl up and rest but fortunately I did not succumb to a nap or downtime and ploughed on. The good thing about this is that it will start to correct a body clock that went a bit amiss on a holiday before Bank Holiday and a change in work patterns etc.

Time appears to pass in disordered junks!

Having realised I have not managed to maintain a solid grasp of blogging I have put five minutes thought into that today. Well! I say 5 minutes but who the hell knows how long really as time seems to flop and flimsy past not only at an alarming rate but for me also on a wobbly path! I put something down to pick up again because I’m not an octopus and then I blink, turn round and nearly a week or more has gone past!
I’m not enjoying this erratic passage of time at all! In myself I am happy and content overweight but generally healthy, I believe. However I find that my perception of time and my way of organising it is to say the least sorrowful.
I thought things would get better after the summer holidays and Blurt back at school etc. but the time disrupter is certainly myself and not those around me who are all fairly functional.
So I will need to do a bit of research into managing time and by this I don’t mean squeezing things effectively into time slots as we normally think of time management but more giving myself the skill to feel time as it really is.
I am also hoping that if I get a grip on this and don’t feel quite so punch drunk then my creativity may find a boost. As things are at the moment I can feel the ideas and inspiration but I can’t focus long enough to even make a healthy start on things never mind make completion.
So a little bit of research and grab the situation and take control of it rather than just be bashed up by it all may be what has to take place.
