I am on a roll with the scraps! I got about 5 cards made yesterday and it was fabulous! And I not only used up my scraps, but I made a point of trying to use up all the chipboard I've had laying around for a million years. You know, the chipboard that comes in coordination with certain papers? It's already decorated? I don't use that stuff alot, so it sits around collecting dust. Yesterday I made a point of using some of it on each of the cards I made! Yea me!!! It felt soooo good.
Do you know what else happened yesterday while I was making cards? I wasn't trying to design the most beautiful thing this side of the Mississippi. I wasn't worrying about what layout I would use. I just sort of laid down what I wanted to where I wanted to, without thinking about it very much. I just created. It really felt great, and the cards turned out really fun. I haven't designed like that, so loosely, in such a long time. I hope today turns out the same way. I am playing hooky from church this morning. It was such a crazy stressful week I really needed a day that I didn't have to get up, shower and go. The Hubster is taking the boys in to church so I can stay home and relax. Woo-hoo!
Speaking of the Hubster, here is a picture of he and I on Friday night at our little tailgating soiree before the big game. It's a good thing we had a smile on our face in this shot, because by the end of the game, those smiles were long gone.
Well, I start my big new job this coming week. I will be training this week on Tu and Thurs, and then the next week my normal schedule will be M 7a-1p, Th 1p-7p, Fr 1p-5p, and Sat mornings 8-1p. This schedule leaves me time to do my other job, although it will be tough because this time of year is really, really busy for my freelance work. I hope I can make both work! I am a little nervous about starting something new...it's scary entering the real work world again.
Well ladies, I hope you have a great day. Enjoy!
