yesterday i went down to the studio, totally wanting to play with polymer. but i have a commission for which to bind. i sighed and put together the papers to fold.
then i remembered that i like to put the signatures in the book press overnight.
so there was time to play with clay! i was working from donna kato's millefiore book. i want to make beads for book marks. i figured it would be helpful to make some fresh canes. i was a bit impatient with the clay, not wanting to mix my own colors. in the end i should have taken my time. i made two ugly canes and two nice ones. i think i'm going to turn the ugly cane into a kaleidoscope cane. we'll see how that turns out.
i really need to prioritize my time. i'm creating a few books for publication and they need to be full of journaled pages. that's going to take a long time. so i should really focus on that before making beads. it's hard to tell my muse what to do though.
how do you set your priorities while still allowing the muse to roam free?
