« Part 26: Out of the shadows! Part 27 of Pallet Craft series Part 28: What the waka? Stress relief. »

Hello Readers,

That’s it! I have had enough for one day!... Well that is what I should have said, but if you know me I can’t seem to help myself when it comes to frustration and working on things. I know I should stop, after all, all this frustration is just leading me to rush through critical parts of the project!

So I change my attitude towards the project, perhaps my project is frustrated with me because it has seen enough work for one day? Perhaps I am overworking the project and abusing it!? Maybe I am negatively affecting it long term!?

That’s it! I will not abuse my project any more for the day, I will not risk it’s beauty or success during it’s lifetime. I will stop, when I am frustrated, take time, breath, and the next day try, try again.

We all have those days! My shortest suit is waiting for finish to cure (not dry) before progressing to next step. You’d think we’d learn after screwing up enough projects.
