Have you ever had a day you wish you could repeat and change. Well that was the type of day I had, only I couldn't change it. Sometimes I get feelings and I'm not sure if it's me being paranoid or really the way it is. Well today was that way. The good thing is I survived it and tomorrow is a new day. I was upstairs tonight and managed to get a few cards done. I'm not happy with the results. I just can't get into making them. I really think the stress is getting to me lately. Making cards and scrapbooking used to relax me but now I get more stressed. There's alot going on in my life right now and until that gets better I'll probably be stressed for awhile. Well one good thing today was my grandson walked up to me and gave me a kiss. I think he new I was sad! That made my day! I love that little guy so much. He's my life!!!!! He's my sunshine on a rainy day.
Well it's friday and I get 2 days off. Hopefully I'll get to my scraproom. I need to clean out and sell some of my items. I have so much I don't use anymore and need to cut back. I still haven't finished painting. That will have to wait till summer vacation. I'm painting my room lavender. I think it will give the room a new airy look. I started it last may and have it half done. I need to get all the wallpaper down from the slants. Not sure if I'll paint it white or lavender. I need to reorganize the whole room. It is a mess up there! When I make my items I make such a mess. No wonder I can't get anything done!!!! I need a secretary!!!! Only kidding! Right now I'm having a creative block. It takes me all night to make 1 card!!! Of cause going to bed before 6pm doesn't help. I'm just so tired lately! Old Age?????? Well need to take care of grandson. He's running wild!!!! Have a great weekend everyone!
As you know for the last 2 weeks my family has been sick. Well we're all better but I can't seem to get back into the swing of things. My crafting has gone downhill. Everytime I try to make new cards , it's a struggle. So I think I need to step back for awhile and not try to make any. I have no ideas at all. All I want to do is sleep. When my grandson goes home I go to sleep. Maybe I'm just tired of winter or maybe I'm tired of crafting!!!! I hope this changes soon or I will be giving up my Etsy Site! I'd hate to do that but more and more I think I will have to. Well I really don't have anything else to say, so I'll say good bye!
Well my family is finally better! We've all been sick for 2 weeks. I'm glad thats over. (Knock On Wood) Here's some bookmarks I made last night! I'm selling these on Etsy. Check out my site. I add new items almost daily!
As you know my family has all had the stomach flu. Well I finally got a chance to come on here. Here's my new Address book I made last week before we all got sick. Well just found out husband has it now. So I guess another few days of sickness. Dd just picked up my grandson. I don't want him to get sick again.
Well I was excited about my 3 day weekend. On friday my dd called and said my grandson was sick. So I didn't have to watch him. Of cause I went to see him. The poor little guy had the bad stomach flu. He couldn't keep anything down. The Dr. didn't even want to see him because this flu spreads quickly. He just said to give him fluids and after clean all his toys with bleach. So yesterday I cleaned his whole toy chest here and everything in my house. I did SPRING CLEANING! So no scrapbooking for me. Today I want to finish everything , then maybe get my scrapbook room painted. I've been painting it since last May. It's half done! I want to look over everything and get rid of alot of it. There's things I haven't even used yet. Time to clean out and see what I can get rid of. I want to take the carpet out and put a wood floor up there. I think I'll get rid of the big steel shelfs and maybe do it with old items from around my house. Kind of like a shabby chic look. I love that kind of look. Well as you can see I couldn't sleep so maybe I'll get something done now!
I made this last night. I'm not sure if I like the way it turned out. When I get an idea to alter something, it doesn't mean it comes out good. Thats what I like about altering. It's a challenge every time! It's a address book, a clip, and a magnetic bookmark.
Here's a few of my latest altered items. I love altering everything I can think of. I'll be altering some magnetic frames and clips to go with these. They would be cute for a office our a pod at work. I'll be selling them on my Etsy site in a set of 2.
Haven't done any cards to put on. I'm having a problem with my hand! I had a bad fall over 2 years ago. I damaged my hand and wrist real bad. The surgeon said I would never use that hand again. Well my prayers we're answered and I got the use of my hand back. Well the last year I've been having problems with it. I'm losing some of my strength again. Yes, I feel bad but at least I got the use of it back! Yesterday I had a bad day with it. I had to put my brace on it because the pain was so bad. Our weather here has been cold!!!! We've had snow every week since before Christmas. The weather effects my hand and me, being who I am, doing things and trying to get more hours in a day doesn't help. Yesterday I didn't do anything but take care of my grandson. It was hard doing that but this morning I'm feeling better. I'm not in as much pain. Hopefully this weekend I can get upstairs in my scraproom and do some things! Sorry for my venting but just posting this gets me out of my pitty me mode!!! I'm back to my old self!!! I hate these moods! My poor daughter had to listen to me whine!!! She had to put me in my place to get me out of it!!! Thanks Heather!!!!! You know how to make me stop feeling sorry for myself!!!!!
Had a great night last night. Got a chance to visit my friend at her floral shop. Taking care of grandson all week and trying to get errands done on weekend, doesn't give me much time to see friends. Last night I made sure I would visit her. I actually helped her. I filled the water tubes. No I don't do flowers!!!!! We had a nice visit and I got to relax there . I'm working on new cards so I should have them done by tonight. I'll put them on tomorrow.
