I'm sure you know the feeling when life starts getting hectic and very tricky to control.
When your to-do list is endless, projects start whirling around your head and all sorts of deadlines start biting your...khm...ankles. ;)
What do you do then?
Hah! I bet I'll guess! You...procrastinate, don't you? ;)
So here's my story today. My life has been crazy busy recently - don't get me wrong, I LOVE it!
But everyone needs a tiny little break from time to time.
Today's project initially was supposed to be created for a totally different company, with a different topic and execution. But. Well...I started having so much fun in the making that somehow my brain decided to put off all the things I SHOULD be doing and just enjoy the process.
I loved creating this piece (and it turned out to be just perfect for 7 Dots Studio!) and allowing myself to forget about all the obligations for just a little while.
I played with this gorgeous Archival inks color combination that I simply adore and find very inspiring, I also used my 9th Wave papers, some Mechanicals and Sizzix cut out elements to create the layering to add some depth.
You may call it procrastination as if it was a bad thing.
But it turns out that scientists might prove us all wrong. Just take a look:
"If you look at recent studies, managing delay is an important tool
for human beings. People are more successful and happier when they
manage delay. We will always have more things to do than we can possibly do,
so we will always be imposing some sort of unwarranted delay on some
tasks. The question is not whether we are procrastinating, it is whether
we are procrastinating well."
So, no guilt trip this time! ;)
Procrastinate well, my friends! :)
