I have been working forever on name keepsakes for a relative.
They are being delivered way behind the promised time and I feel so bad....
Sometimes mixture of circumstances and artist's block prevents us from performing the way we'd like.
Being a working mom by day and an artist by night...I find it impossible to set priorities.
How does one prioritize priorities?
When every issue I am facing has to be resolved RIGHT NOW, my head is spinning to say the least.
Does that happen to everyone?
An old Jewish saying goes: "If you want to make G-d laugh, tell him what your plans are."
So I just have to give in to the will of the Creator, and hope, the recipients will like my work so much, they will forgive me for its delay.
So below is my name keepsake for a little girl, that was designed days after she was born, drawn around last year's summertime, accidentally been damaged, has been redrawn two months ago, finished this weekend and is being shipped off today, couple months after her first birthday.
I truly hope though, it will be treasured forever.
