So little desire to do it!
Have you ever been there. I am there. It’s not that I am lazy or tired (well, I am that!), or overwhelmed. I just have other things that I want to do.
A little overview of my day…
- 6:20am Wake up and take a shower
- 7am Make breakfast while helping daughter with homework
- 7:30am Leave for school and work
- 8-3pm Work, work, work… and then work more
- 3pm Go home and start cooking dinner
- 3:30pm Cook dinner / clean up
- 5pm Run kiddos to various locations and run various
- 9pm Start helping son with homework
Why is it that we are always so busy. Is it wrong that on Tuesday morning, I am already looking forward to sleeping in on Saturday morning?
I just would absolutely like to be doing nothing but hanging out in my craft room, organizing, making cards, even sweeping and dusting! But, when I do get a chance to go up there… I never want to come down. So, unless I have all night to do nothing but stamp, I don’t dare enter the black hole of creativity!
When I am upstairs, I lose all track of time. I get lost in watching sappy chick-flicks while trying out new techniques or cutting pieces for new cards.
I mean, really… When I am at work, I am thinking about what cards I could be making. I think, “Oh… I’ll just check real quick on Pinterest!” I am not sure about you… but “real quick” and “Pinterest” should never be in the same sentence. Next thing I know, It’s been an hour and I just want to go home and play with my stamps and paper!
So, here is what I did the one day I did take off a little bit early – shhh… don’t tell my boss!
I made a shaker card using one of the Hostess Sets from the 2016-2017 Annual catalog. I am still working on shaker cards… trying different things to make them shake right.
Great, now I want to go home and try something new…
But, before I go… here are the directions on how I made that card!
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
