People think focus means saying yes to the things you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things we have done. Innovation is saying no to a thousand things. — Steve Jobs, 1997 Worldwide developers Conference (via simplifyyourlife)

Busy

I’ve been sewing away, and am currently working on costume/cosplay/altwear pattern alterations for my upcoming Etsy shop; also getting a group of larger paintings together for long-term showing at a  new coffeehouse opening up here this spring.  Finished a collaborative acrylic (all five of us used our handprints) and looking forward to delivering it . Cooking fusions, although I’ve lost my camera and can’t photograph my efforts in any venue. Bummer.

I feel like I am not DOING anything creative, but in truth I am constantly doing something creative -I’m just not selling it. Also, real life keeps me out of the studio more and more these days. (And off Tumblr, too.)
