The reasons I love my boyfriend (silly and small but true)

so he's putting the vibraphone he borrows from work back together and mentions that when we have to move to a different place the navy guys in charge might not be as nice there as they are here about letting him check out (borrow) different instruments like he does with the vibes. so i said that surely they make a smaller version like mini vibes or something more affordable and easy to store. so i googled it, like all of us do these days when we're curious about something, and came across a link that said: "how to build your own vibraphone" i read this out loud and he says: "I can't hang a picture." and as i laugh i remind him that i'm a sculpture major and can build things so he doesn't have to. i am so glad he is NOT a tim the tool man or anything... lol. god i love him.

And OH the possibilities!

it's overwhelming sometimes. everything. the choices, the options, the possibilities that every day holds. just thinking about it makes me feel like spacing out at the computer staring at pretty things on etsy or snooping through facebook photos of people i've barely spoken to this past year. i have tons of things with which to create but it's daunting. the thought of the many many ideas that go through my mind for just one little object or piece of fabric, yarn or clay. ugh... it's not lack of creativity but having too much that seems to be the trouble. how silly. i am, however, thankful that my mind is not a complete blank. just a crazy conglomeration of "i could make this into this or this or this or THIS!" man oh man... i better get to making. here's what i made yesterday...

gotta put my brain on channel focus so i don't waste today on indecision! :D
