Inspiration Overload

I'm on inspiration overload.  My head hurts.  This design thing is a joke.  I need to get my hair done, go shopping, file paperwork, stop eating carbs....the list goes on.  Instead, my brain is running on overdrive with design ideas.  I have every design project mentally done.  I even have the store holiday window display job done...and I haven't even agreed to do it yet.  It might kill me.  I can see it now, crying while I lug my cast iron urns in the car.   Spray painting urns and branches, I'll be covered in white paint and glitter from head to toe and swearing like a truck driver.  I won't sleep.  This is why in the past I have graciously declined invitations to do showhouses and the holiday home tour this year...sheer torture.  Every designer knows this feeling, doubt.  Doubt is the killer for a designer.  For that reason, I'm doing it, hoping for the best and repeating this mantra, "There is a fine line between holiday and Liberace.".
