Given what you DID and did NOT do, I'd say your time was very well spent!

you made excellent choices. All that stuff will still be there but you soul will be nourished.

Sounds like a very balanced life of an artist. You know the other things will eventually get done.

I love your list!!! It's such a great way to play with the day and keep the smile on your face. Clean when company is coming, do dishes when you run out and need more and spend your extra time kissing the kids!!
Cheers, Denise
who also has a Claire!

Yeah you! I've theoretically had 2 hour slots three times a week this year to quilt. Huge chunks of that time were eroded away by all the stuff I felt like I had to do. Next year I'm going to try to follow your example.

The more you do, the more there is to do. I feel like I'm running behind lately too. Seems like you have your priorities in order,though!
