Well my big day yesterday certainly did catch up with me today. I sort of expected it to, considering I have just had my operation. I have decided this week needs to be a convalescing week for me so this morning I took myself off to have my nails done and had a bit of a snooze this afternoon. It’s amazing how much an anaesthetic and operation can take out of you.

Now we all know how I am always up for a challenge and “Goddess Michelle” from “Joy Express” has proposed that July be a “Creative Challenge Month”. So seeing I have a list the length of your arm with “UFO” (unfinished objects) craft projects I think that my recuperation time should be spent sitting completing some of the projects I was really passionate about when I started them. Not only am I a bit of a procrastinator but I have the reoccurring habit of starting a project and before I finish it I find something else I want to do. So what do I do – just start the new project! I am not as bad as I used to be, but I have often wondered why some of us always finish what we start before heading on to another project and then there are those of us who just get distracted. I’d love to now how many of you out there are in the same boat as me and has boxes full of half finished projects?

Of course I will be honest and blog about my finished projects.
NO - not this sort of UFO!!!!

  1. Davine, I know why I was a starter and never a finisher, I used to fear success in any way, shape or form. I too would start so many things and walk away, almost run from some of them. There were certain things I HAD to finish such as painting a room, sewing anything that had to do with beautifying a house, etc. but that was due to my perfectionism. Trust me when I say it's a hard go at life to be both a procrastinator and a perfectionist, that's plain out crazy making!

    I'll send you a link to a short article on starting and not completing tasks, there are varying reasons for it.

    All the best to you in completing your projects, you can and will finish what you've started, I can "hear" your determination to do so! :-) Cheers my friend... I still have no word on the house but should hear back within the week if it's a go or not.


I would love to hear your comments.
