too much time to think....

Hey all how are we today?!!?
 Well I have been un well with serious back pain the last four days, everyone is blaming the dancing from saturday night, but i'm not sure!!! it has given me a lot of time to assess my self and my crafting.  

Last week, while frantically out on school and ballet runs as well as entertaining two children bathing them feeding them and making sure they we ok I started to doubt my crafting... did I have tie to craft??  Did I want to craft???  I spent hours looking at my stash, thinking to my self well I could get rid of all of it and then I would have a lot more space in my house. 

Then since Sunday I have had no option other than to sit down and relax, I started to go through all the photos on the computer and then I came across a number of cards that I started a while ago and have not long finished and then I thought to my self, I love crafting, its my time for me, i'm not giving it up, I just want to learn to create different things, become more experimental with what I create and be more daring.  

So my new missions are to start now.  

Im sick of rushing things 'just because' so now my aim is to take as long as I need to on a project or creation.  If I want to sit and colour all day I will and if i want to try something new I will.  Today as I have been at my mums I have spent the morning colouring, Im about to have a browse on the net for something new to try, if anyone has any suggestions.... 

But I will leave you with this creation that I finished just a couple of weeks ago... 


I made this using some stunning card from the Paper mill and my new stamp kit from Whiff of Joy, I'm so looking forward to the next kit, its very exciting! 

Thats me over and out for now.  I hope to be back later with something new!

Bless ya! I hope your back starts getting better - what a nightmare. On the plus - at least is has given you time to reflect on your hobby!!

I'm glad you have continued to ongo with creativity and that you want to push yourself to try new things and techniques. I love the twisted easel card you have created - perhaps that is just the start?!

xo Lou.

Hope you feel better soon. Sometimes you need a little break to just do things that you want to in the way that you want to do them...
