Progress plus Missed Days on The 100 Day Project

When I started this project I thought I might be sabotaging myself.  New projects are my specialty but so are unfinished projects.  Can I get an amen?  I know I'm not alone on this.  That is why I chose my project to be unfinished projects and not something new. Sadly my father has been in the ICU for over 3  weeks and this past week he graduated to heaven.  So my creativity is taking a small break to concentrate on more important things.  I will be back in a few days.  Actually crafting is a great outlet and distraction for grief.

The 100 Day Project for Creatives

Do you have a TON of creativity but not a lot of time to spend on actually BEING creative? Creative projects are a bit of an addiction for me and I want to spend time on all of the ones I've started but there always SO many other pressing things to do on my list. That’s why I was so excited to run across The 100 Day Project last week. I jumped in with both feet this week and I want to share my progress and invite you to join me!

11 Things Keeping Me Sane Waiting at the ICU

Kim Brush5 Comments

A little over 2 weeks ago my life did a 90 degree turn.  My dad had a car wreck and that put him on the path to being in the ICU for 14 days(so far).  This is not the first time I’ve see life turn on a dime. I knew it was happening as I watched the events unfold. Have you had those moments?  I pray that you never spend hours in the hospital waiting room or have to pack a bag to keep you busy while you wait in an ER but if you do I hope that this list gives you some ideas on what to take.
