Artistic endeavours

Lately I've been expanding my artistic horizons.  I signed up for Swap-bot over a year ago but have just recently started joining the swaps.  I've been focusing on ATCs.  I've also been working on my drawing and painting skills.  They, to be generous, are non-existent.  I 've been making Zentangles to work on the drawing and have purchased a bunch of watercolors and watercolor pencils for the painting.  Since I have so many random papers at home I've been using them for some of the ATCs I've sent out.

I'm enjoying myself even though I'm getting a little frustrated with my lack of skills.  I know I'll get better as I work, but I just feel as if I should be better already.  I know it just takes practice, but I wonder sometimes how I'll find the time in the day to get better at all the hobbies I want to improve in.  Stitching, designing stitching, painting and drawing and throw in the occasional bout of writing.  I need to win the powerball so I can just indulge myself all day, every day.
