Procrastinators Anonymous...


Last night my friend Marilyn asked me about paintings for an upcoming show (in July ~ at the Depot, here in Sikeston)...How many do I have ready?...Ummm...I think THIS is going to be the first one! I set this up on our little chess table last summer with two of my favorites flowers ~ a big, gorgeous magnolia blossom and hydrangeas in my little crystal bowl...

I always think I have so much time to do things, when in reality I know how each day ~ each month ~ flies by!

I need to get going!

♥ ♥ ♥

Post Script...

One reason I started my blog back up; I thought I would post art and works-in-progress and it would keep me motivated...well, I have been having fun with it and all (meeting new friends), but not making art!  I’m going to do better, though (I have to!!)....I think I'll start putting a progress note at the bottom of know what? I need to take my “countdown to spring” thingy off (since it seems to be full-on Summer now) and make it a “countdown to art show” one ~ (you can do that!) ~ I think that might actually help!
You know something funny...I had another show deadline a couple of years ago, and I just kept putting things off...and one day I was in the store buying milk, reaching way in the back for the ones with the farthest-out expiration date...and THERE WAS MY SHOW DATE! Arghh!! ~ THAT got me going! LOL ~ This is bigger than milk expiration-date-time frames, though, so I need to get in gear!
Have a great evening!
(AC is humming!)


  1. I want you to quick posting and get busy now!;>) I, too, often misjudge how much time I have to get something done and then it is a rush to finish it. I hope you will share that painting here when you have finished it! xo Diana

  10. Your blog is lovely. I giggled when I read *a little fur in the paint*. I can relate ... a little fur in the paint and wrapped around the yarn while I crochet or knit. That's okay ... a little furbaby love included in everything! Thanks for dropping by and becoming part of the neighborhood! I'm joining you, too.

  17. Anne,
    I just found your comment on my blog and thank you so much for stopping by! I can't say as I'll be doing a ton of posting right now, taking more of a mental break from closing the business. I love the title of your blog, in fact, I was painting a sign today for a friend, and my kitten walked right through the paint! Finding your blog this evening just made me smile! Your pictures are nice to meet you..
    Lisa ;-)

  18. Thanks for visiting my blog. It's lovely to pop over and visit you here too. I LOVE all your photographs :-)
    Love your bunnies too! We have a bunny ... and 3 guinea pigs ... and two hamsters ... not to mention the dog ...!! I would have more too, I really would!
    Enjoy the lovely weather you are getting over there - just starting to feel like spring here.

  19. Love your set-up for the painting. Too funny about the milk expiration. I am the worst procratinator also. Always waiting until the last minute on the things that HAVE to be done! Can't wait to see the painting, I'll be following along!



I love your thoughts and comments, and I read each and every one! Sometimes life gets in the way, though, and it takes me a while to respond...Thank you for understanding! ♥...Time is precious, and the time you've taken here is truly appreciated!
