artistic trades

i've been making more christmas cards tonight and i am dying to make an art journal {or continue on with the ones i've started, at least}.

le sigh. i almost can't wait for christmas to be over, just to have time to work on other things again. i fall into new ideas too quickly and i want to do everything and it's my own fault i get stressed out, because i am too impatient to give things time. sometimes i think that if i chose a couple of things to focus on, i could be really good at something. instead i go from idea to idea, finding new obsessions that peak and fade in a cycle. one day i want to have a great zine distro filled with creative works from other people; the next i want to collage and cut & paste and drown in colour as books become works of visual art; and then i want to hone in on learning photoshop properly and taking photos of everything, snap snap snap. my room is filled with beads, scrapbooking papers, cardmaking items, cameras, pens, ideas for collages and mail art and special pages. i thought i wanted to learn candle making {and still do} but i'm beginning to think i need to focus for a little while, just for a change.

does everyone go through this? i am creative but i am lazy; i wonder what might happen if i actually gave these things the time and effort they need to be really good. my writing tutor says my course is off to a strong start, but have i written anything more since august? no. i can't seem to just stick to one thing and learn all there is to know about it.

jack of all trades, master of none. writing, colour, collage, books, beads, candles, photos, scents, and is there any way to combine all of those together?

as always, i need sleep. nevermind; this doesn't make sense, even to me.
goodnight, goodnight.
