Eeeek! Panic is beginning to kick in. I now have less than a month to complete these canvases for an upcoming exhibition and this is all I’ve done so far. Prepared the backgrounds with vintage book pages (choice of pulp being Peanuts…no surprise to anyone who knows me!) and I’ve yet to add the paint. They are going to be paintings. Which of course means that they require painting. I have paint. I have brushes. I even have this very clear plan in my head of what I want to do. It’s just not happening. Why? Dunno. If I wasn’t in panic mode my brain would work properly and I’d be able to list a gazillion concise, yet extremely mundane reasons. Stress is a funny ol’ thing. Causing an inability to focus. Leaving one with an attention span of a flea. Is flea correct? It doesn’t seem right somehow. I think of fleas as being quite attentive little critters. Maybe I’ve read them wrong. Whatever. And performing the simplest of tasks becomes all too overwhelming. Even attempting to reply to text messages while on the bus was a complete impossibility. My hands failed to work and I kept dropping the phone. I gave up in the end. On the bus. On edge. Route #345. The crowds, the noise, the drunken Melbourne Cup Day revellers…

Today at least was made a little sweeter with the arrival of this Etsy purchase from Esme's Fudge. I LOVE homemade fudge and this is the first Brisbane Etsy shop that I've discovered to sell food items. Oh boy is this fudge yummy! 350 grams of hand whisked creamy milk chocolatey goodness! It was also wrapped and packaged so pretty in lovely fabric and ribbon and was sent fresh from the kitchen via overnight express post! I discovered this shop on Little Mary Moo's fab blog and I'm so glad I did!
