O M G! Have I mentioned how lazy I am. Actually, I’m not sure it’s laziness. Wait… Yes, yes it is!
So, I have this craft fair coming up in a few weeks. Actually, it’s in two weeks – Saturday, March 4th. And, what do I have done for it… NADA! NOTHING! ZILCH!!!
Actually, that is not true, I have plans. I have big plans. I am doing something like 180 cards and some 3D projects, including some succulents. But, what have I started actually making… NADA! NOTHING! ZILCH!!!
Why on earth do I procrastinate so?
Do you do this?
I had big plans of going home from work yesterday and spending some quality time in the craft room. Did I do this? Nope!
What did I do?
I waited for the hubby to come home to take me to the store because I didn’t feel like driving myself the three miles. Then, when we got home, I waited for the daughter to get home and do her dishes. Then I made some homemade bread while I watched a couple movies. Then, I ate some leftovers for dinner and went to bed.
Yes, I am that pathetic. But, there is a plan… remember!
Yesterday, I cut three packs of card stock to be card bases and layers for the cards I am going to make. Doesn’t that sound like a great accomplishment? It was a total of 102 bases and 96 layers. Impressive, right!?! Then, I will not mention that it took a total of three cuts with my heave-duty paper cutter to achieve it! I’ll let you think that I did it one piece of paper at a time… 🙂
But, here is a picture of my first successful try at making homemade bread!!!
Did I mention that I left work at noon yesterday. I know – that doesn’t make it any better does it? Miss Hattie said I could, so I did! But look at that bread. It actually rose!
I am teaching kids at church how to make bread at Old Fashioned Day next Saturday. I figured I needed to learn! I can make yummy cinnamon rolls using yeast. I taught them how to do this last year… so, when asked about this year, I told them I would teach a bread making lesson knowing full well that I have never actually been successful at it! So, why not wait until a week before the event to try a new recipe from Pinterest?
But alas, this did not get any cards made for the upcoming craft fair. I did make progress… Not only did I cut cut down a bunch of cardstock with three cuts… hard work, I know… but I carried in the box of Stampin’ stuff i need into the house from the car.
I got other things done too, so it wasn’t a complete waste of a day… I also brought in a candle bag from the car and tried to do some candlescaping… after I shoved Dell’s stuff out of the way. He tends to take over the dining room table when he comes home for a visit!
So, I promise you… I will make cards tomorrow and the next day… I will be ready and I will post pictures 🙂
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
