TO SEE IF THERE IS
ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE!
Another of my goals for the new year is to purposely find time to be creative again. For many months last year, there was very little time for crafting of any sort. So in addition to the great stress of life that I was experiencing, I was inadvertently adding more stress upon myself by not participating in things that brought me enjoyment and happiness.
After learning some tough life lessons, I am finally able to give myself permission to hit the craft room whenever I want to, and especially when I know that I need to.
It helps to have the craft room upstairs now, as I am much more likely to make my way back there when chaos threatens my sanity. Having things in an organized fashion in an easily-accessible room – instead of thrown helter-skelter all over an out-of-the-way room in the basement, or even crammed into cabinets in the kitchen area – makes it more likely that I will actually WANT to do some crafting. I can now go into the craft room with my ipad, turn on my favorite talk show or Prime video, close the door, and refresh my mind and spirit with beautiful colors and ideas and inspiration. Without guilt.
Well, now that we have that psycho-babble out of the way….
Here is a card for three challenges:
The challenge for Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #311 is to use “different types of papers.” I used the Mix + Mat Postal dies to cut the kraft background section on my card from this gable box that has been hanging around the house:
Then I used the Doily Details A die to cut a pair of doilies from this coffee filter:
The color scheme comes from this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.
And the sketch comes from this week’s Paper Players challenge.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you are having a wonderful week!
