No Card Today.....
I know this looks like my Wednesday post, but trust me it is different. I have not been working on cards for a couple of days. I've been sorting and trashing some stuff out of my craft room that just had to go. Also I'm making boxes for some of the cards I'm going to mail so they will be protected a little during shipment. All this takes time away from the things that I love, but they are a necessary evil around here. Sometimes you just have to put the good stuff aside and do the mundane. I find I get bored with these things really quickly, but the last two days, I'm sticking to my guns and getting all these things out of the way. Then we can play again.
I went to a couple of yard sales here yesterday and found a few things to alter. I was really looking for an old wedding dress or some old wind up watches that I could take apart and use on my boxes. It was just not meant to be. But the pieces I found were really inexpensive and should work up nicely. I will be showing pictures as I do them. So hang in there with me and hopefully I'll have a piece to show you in a day or so.
Our summer days are coming to a close. I'm happy to see cooler temps come our way. The trees have begun dropping leaves already. Someone said it was because of the heat we have had this year. I hope there are enough left to have the beautiful colors we are used to here in East Tennessee. Mother nature can really put on a show around here when she wants to. Can you tell, I just love this area of the country. I guess I'm a southern girl through and through!
Well that is about it for me this morning. I hope you have a wonderful day and do something crafty. Remember no matter where you are or what you are doing to take just a moment and "Breathe"
