Just parking this here

Hand holding up a vintage plastic parking sign
I've been feeling a bit envious reading all the social media posts from people who have been home over the past month or so, with lots of free time to deep dive into projects.

Then I feel conflicted as I remind myself how fortunate I am to have a job. And a job I can do from home. But which often leaves me brain dead by the time I clock off for the day.

So I decided that I should attempt a challenge: but with all the other stresses caused by the current situation, make it as low-pressure as I possible.

It's called 'May be miniatures'. It's May. I'll try to do something miniature-related each day, but I'm sure as hell not going to beat myself up if I don't, or the lighting's crap because it's dark by the time I finish whatever it is that I plan to create that day so my photos aren't great.

Yep, this is going to be the loosest challenge I can come up with. Perhaps you'll hear from me tomorrow. Or perhaps I'll decide what I need to do is stay burrowed under the doona (duvet), keep warm, and read. We'll see...

Good luck and I look forward to seeing anything you do create when you get out from under the duvet, or have finished work!

I know how you feel. I've been working in our office since we're considered an essential business. When I'm working from home I don't have any more time for minis than I do when I'm in the office.

I hope you're able to carve out some more time for minis and hopefully I can do the same!

I'm glad you understand: I had such good intentions today, but then got slammed with some urgent work, which turned it into a nine-hour day. And now my brain is fried :-/

I'll be looking forward to it! Are you on Instagram? That seems a whole lot easier for me than writing an entire blog post. I will look for you!

Or perhaps we'll hear from you from your warm burrow under the doona;
nothing beats having a challenge! ;)
