Message to myself

Dear Geneviève:

This is your Inner Artist speaking. Lately, I must say that you have been letting me down, BIG time. You know I'm in here, wanting to come out and play, yet you continually ignore me and my yearnings. You need to get your act together and FOCUS. Stop fidgeting, stop running around, stop thinking of 40 million things at the same time and just FOCUS. Sit at your desk (grab a comfier chair), clean it off, use your stuff that's now getting dusty and create something, anything. I know you really want to, and I don't really care what it is, as long as you let me free. Don't get up after 2 minutes to get something to drink, bring your drink before you sit down. Don't get up to go watch TV or surf online, use your hands and your heart until you have something done in front of you. Don't try any of your old excuses like "I'm not good enough", "I don't have the right supplies", "I don't have any ideas", because I'm not having it anymore. I know it's hard, I know you feel like you can't let me out, but it'll be so worth it when you do let me play. If you can't think of anything to scrap about, make a list, or use the Challenges you like so much for inspiration. Journal. Don't journal. Use pics. Don't use pics. Use old supplies. Use new supplies. Use your style. Try something new. I don't care. As long as you don't quit, as long as you do something, I know you'll enjoy and will get back into it. It's just a habit, letting me out, and you've lost it. Get it back. Get me back into your life. It's so much better when your Inner Artist is part of you.

Most importantly, remember your old Mantra:



Sincerely,
Geneviève's Inner Artist

Seigneur d' la vie, Geneviève... je devrais m'écrire un message comme ça moi aussi. C'est la même chose pour moi. J'ai essayé de faire un layout cette semaine, je n'ai pas été capable. On dirait que je trouve toujours autre chose à faire. Mais c'est assez!

Sur la nouvelle "Stash" liste, il y a K&Co. Je sais que j'en ai plein, et toi aussi d'ailleurs. Alors je t'envoie un défi : Tu fais une page et la met sur 2Peas avant jeudi le 11. Et je fais de même moi aussi. Qu'est-ce que t'en penses? Chacun une page de Quincy tiens, pourquoi pas!

J'attends ta réponse.
Maman
