I frequently find myself frozen, overwhelmed with all the things I want to do, and all the things I 'should' do. I have made it a goal to just do one thing at a time, do a little at a time, and make an effort to enjoy the process. I have also promised myself I will not let guilt force me to do projects that I no longer have any desire to do. But, those are few and far between I find.
Last weekend, the goal was organization. I had pictures ALL OVER MY HOUSE! They needed to be in ONE place so I could spend less time searching for the picture "I know I have!" somewhere!! It took 10 hours of finding, sorting, labeling , and focusing, but I think I have most of them together. I still have a pile of things I need to sort through on the side of my desk, and I know there are photos in there, but I am not ready to face that pile just yet. This weekend is for creating!
This weekend, I started by making the second set of cards for the CLOUD NINE card kit. There were plenty of die cuts for 2 sets of cards, but not enough paper. So, I used some of the paper from the SARITA paper kit. I substituted COTTON CANDY for the yellow in the kit, and it worked out great! I really like these cutting directions, and I am thinking of using them for my Christmas cards with the BULK paper from 2013's SPARKLE AND SHINE.
Next, I dug out the box of left over product from the CHRISTMAS TAG class I held last fall. My mission this week is to get all those leftover tags put together so they are ready to use or give away this year. I have 2 of the sets finished, but it may take me all week to finish the rest. The mission, get them done!!
See you soon, and keep playing with that paper!!
