Scary. . .



Bonjour... I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and are now enjoying eating all those wonderful chocolates that the Bunny left in the garden.  Of course there will be the inevitable "I've eaten too many chocolates"... and plaf! plaf! a few extra pounds on each thigh...the Easter bunny didn't get to be the size she is by eating lettuce leaves.... 

My life at the moment is littered with little scary moments. The out of comfort zone moments that have me in a panic.  I know it's silly but I have the ability to make mountains out of molehills.  I tell myself that it will be ok. I just need to be prepared and plan things. My mountains are mainly getting lost and being late. I managed to get lost in a Chinese Restaurant once...went up a flight of stairs to the ladies and came down (what I thought were) the same stairs and walked through the kitchens....back out to the restaurant.  I have to go on a course for work in the next few weeks and I'm in a tizwas.
Something I don't usually panic about is when my Mojo goes on a tea break...I know it will come back, I just need to go off and do something else...
This weekend I had a bone chilling, rabbit in head lights, panic moment when I stared at a blank sheet of paper and NOTHING.  Well actually there was something , it got rubbed out several times.
I really started to worry...obviously had eaten to much bloody chocolate and it was playing havoc with my mind...
I ate more chocolate and mooched around Pinterest...something caught my eye and my little crow girl came out to play...

The moral of this "Fun and Nonsense" story is...don't be a demented wally, most things can be solved by eating chocolate or not... :D xx

I love the little crowgirl. I hope you will settle down in peace, without mountains.
Liefs, Melanie

I just had to laugh and admire your honesty when I read this post. I used to say "I can get lost in a paper bag". I also have no sense of direction....whatsoever. With the help of mapquest, then GPS, it has made my life alottttt easier. I found that if I am unsure of area or directions, I try to make the trip and visit the place ahead of time without time constraints. Hope this helps and good luck.
Your little crowgirl is beautiful!

I get lost as well... I have a tendency to wander and either Sinus or Phantom have to come and find me... the Chinese restaurant story gave me hope that I am not alone in being a bit hopeless in this area... love the crow girl.... really atmospheric...xx

Love your little Crow Girl~ I'm glad she turned up! I can work myself into a dither pretty good too... and make a pretty nice mountain in the process! I've definately had those moments when NOTHING comes out my pencil, and the paper just laughs up at me....mocking me!
But, from now on, I'll just say to myself~ "Don't be a demented wally" (whatever a wally is exactly?)... and go find myself a nice chunk of chocolte to drown my sorrows in! :))))

What would we do without chocolate? I shudder to think of it...
Your little crow girl is wonderful!

Oh... I get lost too! Once I got on the wrong bus and realized only when I saw unfamiliar places en route! Sometimes we find new places when we are lost. :-) love the new crow girl who came to play!

LOL! I think all artists have those moments when creativity is no where to be found. I usually start doodling nonsense stuff or browse through the books in my library to get my juices flowing again. I'm glad your cute little crow girl came out to play. Blessings!
