when i engage myself in a great deal of artistic pursuits over a sustained duration, i find myself in 'the zone'. i am unaware of natural bodily appetites...the need for food, sleep, awareness of my surroundings...this can be a difficult thing for a stay at home mommy. last night i wrapped up my sale on etsy and got very busy getting orders completed...printing, sizing, cutting, mounting, packaging... so much so, that i never went to bed! my kids will be waking up and i am just winding down. this should make for a long, long day.
