WOW, fellow frugal crafters, it's been a REALLY LONG siesta for this frugal crafter! Did you ever LOVE a hobby SO MUCH that you lived it, breathed it, and slept it? And if ANYTHING got in your way...be it work, family or friends, you just got cranky?...well I think that's what happened to me...until July 19th, that is:)
You know, some people get hooked on Facebook, Twitter, etc, but I got way out of whack hooked on my crafting! So there was no other way to fix this than to do it cold turkey...no goodbyes or anything...just "rip that bandaid off" as I always say.
I've always been one of those people that JUMP with both feet in the air and concentrate on one thing so much that I forget everything else around me! I have long been the "queen" of tuning things out and getting lost in my own little world...then something happened last summer that made me re-think how I spend my spare time...I won't go into details, and it's all good in the end, but I decided to spend the last 6 months making NEW memories instead of crafting about the old. It was time well spent, and I am finally ready to get back to the hobby I love best...in moderation:)
When asking what my grandkids would like for Christmas, my daughter says..."Well, Mom...I think they'd love a scrapbook"...and that got me thinking that I need to find a "happy medium" between making memories and preserving them...
So I visited my blog a few days ago and thought, why not start where I ended back on July 19th?...with a sketch from Card Patterns! I have a few January birthdays coming up, and LOVE to make cards, so here we go...and I had a GREAT time easing back into my mojo mode...enJOY!
here for sketch.
Happy New Year everyone! I hope you are looking forward to a year filled with love, happiness, creativity, and good health:)
