The Value of "Art Time"

Being pregnant and then having a baby has put my artistic endeavors on the back burner for a while.  Well, that and the fact that my studio is freezing during the winter months means that I haven't been very creative lately and I'm starting to feel "the itch."  You know what I mean, right?  That feeling of "blahness" that hits you somewhere between your head and your heart?  Yeah, I've got it bad now.  I need to get my hand to paper or get some paint on my fingers or something.  It's a bit more challenging now juggling baby, housework, and attempts to sleep, but I've decided that I deserve some creative time each and every day starting TODAY!  No excuses.  Even if I just doodle in a journal for ten minutes I'm going to do it.  I deserve it as does every artist.  Take time today, maybe even right now, to do something artsy just for yourself.
