Back in the groove...

SO, I spent the past two nights working on some cards.  I have to say - I FINALLY felt back in the crafting groove moreso than I have in months.  Lately it seems I spend more energy/effort into buying more supplies (total pigface considering I have so much stuff already - half of it unused as of today!) or cruising the web looking at other people's work, which while it's good for inspiration, hasn't really led me to begin creating.

Totally flaked on photos though - I'll upload some tonight.  Psyched about some of the papers I busted out (Sassafras - Sweet Marmalade!),

the use of new Fiskar's punches and some of my favorite quotes....(remember - I am an official quote FIEND, so most of my work will reflect that.)

Photos tonight - in the meantime, back to my bookkeeping day job.  Boooooooo!!

OK - so not going to lament lack of posts since March. Or begrudge those people/things in my life nuking my energy. Instead I'll steal a quote from Emerson:

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

So today I claim a mantra: too high a sprit...too high a spirit...too high a spirit...

Let's see what happens.

Cheers - hopefully I'll be back tomorrow unencumbered by my old nonsense.

I hate Mondays. At least it's raining. If it were nice outside, I'd really be bent.

One goal this week: I want to buy a typewriter. A plain ole' old school typewriter to use in a hurry-flurry-scurry when I'm throwing together a card or a book.....I'm an instantaneous, impatient person, so I'll want this like, now. Found a couple on Craig's list but debating how hard inking will be if I don't buy one that still has ribbons available. Hmmmm.....
(Thanks to cyhuffman at for inspired photo!)

Contemplating putting some mini album kits together for sale...
STILL need to garner more energy at night to MAKE STUFF! Maybe I should enter "get creative!" as a daily task on my stupid cell phone so it will alarm a direct reminder for me to get off my duff.

Ring the bells that still can ring.
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.

CCC Mini Album Swap!

OK - FINALLY upoaded photos and video of the mini I did for the Craft Craving Chicas swap a while partner was Danielle and although her suggestion was an album based on her two teenage boys, I scrapped that after finding our Danielle had A LOT going on her life. She needed something for HER. Anyway, I used a kit I ordered from and added alternating four inch square chipboard pages to build it up a bit. I had a lot of fun and won't lie...I wanted to keep it!
