Recap 8/18/2017 - Procrastination and Progress

Hello my name is Victoria Lynn Hall and I am an expert procrastinator! :)

Years ago I read an article about procrastinating that basically said to make yourself a long to do list so that, while you're procrastinating one task, you will be getting lots of other tasks done.  I thought this was a brilliant way to use my tendency to procrastinate to my advantage rather than see it as a curse and it has since become a way of life for me.

So when I decided a couple weeks ago that it was absolutely urgent that I clean my bathroom, I knew I was going to get a lot of other stuff done.

I began procrastinating on that right away by working on making a video art tutorial that I'd been putting off all week.  You can see that and read the story behind it on my I Believe In Art Blog by clicking here.

I also cleaned off my nightstand in my master bedroom and learned a new Fleetwood Mac song ("Dreams") on my guitar.  Here's a clip of me performing a bit of that:

Sometime after that I decided that my bathroom needed more than just cleaning.  It needed to be better organized!  So of course I had to go shopping.  I went to some of my favorite antique malls and flea markets looking for some cool vintage containers to store some of my beauty products in and eventually came home with a sarape, a chandelier and the lovely little table in the photo below:

I also did a little gardening and flower arranging.

Then I got to work on another post for the I Believe In Art blog, a new "I Believe In Artists" interview with a fantastic artist named Rebecca Maloney.  Click here to read it.

While all this was going on I did end up ordering some cosmetic organizers and eventually reorganized my bathroom closet.  I was so happy with how this turned out that it inspired me to finally clean the rest of the bathroom (well, most of it).  And it also inspired me to write a post for The Cabbage Blog where you can see photos of the closet and learn about five of my favorite beauty products.  Click here to do that.

So you see that a lot of progress can be made while you procrastinate.  Especially when you are as good at it as I am. :)

So here comes that list of my social media feeds again, just in case you want to see what else I've been up to:
