Not quite in the groove yet

I’ve been desperate to get back to business since the holiday craziness ended, but it just hasn’t happened yet. I have several ideas brewing, and I’m mentally working out the details of making them reality, but I haven’t actually been able to sit down in my workshop and get something done. As I type this, I’m battling a toddler for counter space.

I know there is lots of creativity in me just desperate to get out, and I came to this realization today when for the umpteenth time, I was asked to build a train track for my three-year-old. I realized that every time I build a track, I do something a little more elaborate, a little more “over the top” (quite literally today). I came to this conclusion when I made this:

yes, a triple decker train track with the round house in the middle with all the exits going under bridges. I need help.
