Finally, a weekend of crafting! I was so determined this weekend to get up early, get stuff done and fit in some card-making. I rushed around doing laundry and some gardening, took Mum grocery shopping and did a spot of op-shopping (because I, um, needed to? *looks guilty*). Then I crafted. I got up extra early in order to get things done and not waste time. I stayed in my PJs all day and ignored the TV and Facebook and all those other measly distractions. Several friends invited me out to lunch and coffee and for walks and I told them I had other plans. Plans that did not involve putting clothes on or wearing makeup or being sociable. I didn’t even lie – I just said “I need to stay home in my pyjamas and make stuff”. I made a complete and utter mess and now I am not looking forward to clearing it all up so I might just pretend it’s not there. Or move house.
It took me a while to get started – sometimes the mojo needs a bit of coercing – but then I made a couple of cards I was happy with. Especially this one – I like the colours and the composition and the bird is just so dapper. Look at his little tie and bling! I felt like he should have had a top hat too, but that may have been pushing it.
Now I feel as though I may be getting a cold, which is yucky and annoying (I hardly ever get colds) especially as I wanted to start exercising again today. I just wanted to stay in bed this morning and pull the blanket over my face and sleep forever. But, sadly, one must work if one wishes to continue buying craft supplies and go op-shopping. Such is life.
Hope you are having a bright and breezy day, and spending time with a Beloved or two, if you’re lucky 🙂
