Lost in the world of creating

I can really lose myself when I'm working on a project.

Like tonight.

I've been working on two similar Christmas presents. This evening I got so into them, putting things together and doing detail work, that I lost track of time. I've been setting 10 p.m. as my bedtime, so I can get up for the early bus. But just a few seconds ago, I looked up at my computer screen (which was far out of my eyesight while I was crafting away), and realized it was almost 1 a.m. I knew it was past 10 p.m., but I didn't realize how far.

I have to be up in just a few hours.


I'm already mourning the loss of those precious hours of sleep.

Yeah, I know how that can happen. I did that the other morning where I decided I needed to stay up until I finished a knitting project. It got gruesome towards the end. Sounds like tomorrow will be a nap night, so you can look forward to that!

I think that happens to the best of us sometime or another. It's part of the joy and downfall of a great project. I hope you survived the day without too many ill effects!
