I am a master at starting things. I took a "quiz" at a convention during grad school and it labeled me as an "Artisan"; it described an Artisan as one with great enthusiasm for new ideas and energy for starting new projects, yet prone to fizzle out and not follow through to the finish. Make a to-do list but not cross the last thing off. That describes me pretty well. Today, I finished some things. I finished a baby gift which will now be a Christmas gift. I finished my book club book, Sometimes a Great Notion (if you haven't read this Oregon classic, go check it out! It's long but a great read). And I've been starting and finishing dozens of Christmas ornaments. Yes, I said Christmas. I'm getting an early start while I'm excited, anticipating the fizzle out come December.
