slow and steady wins the race

{it all starts with a drawing}

  In the past I wouldn't have categorized myself as a slow and steady wins the race type of person.  I wanted immediate results and now I clearly see, it's because I was doing projects that I really didn't love.  I was writing recipes and menus for clients and scheduling talks, and I always had this sense of wanting to get it over with as fast as possible, so I could get back to what I really wanted to be doing....sketching, creating, designing.  I always had this sense of anxiety and alarm inside of me.  And now, it's simply not there anymore.   It seems, now that I'm doing what I actually love, I'm willing to put in the time it takes to make it just right.  This is the beginning of one of my larger projects.  I've done all the work myself, so it takes time.  This is the bottom section of what will soon be a floor to ceiling bookcase.  I'm looking forward to having more build time in a few weeks.  My hands are itching to get dirty!  I'll keep you posted, thanks for reading. :)
