I’m toying with rotating my joys. Though I don’t know if regimenting my hobbies will kill that joy they give me. It could backfire. What if I sewed one week, played with paint and glue the next, read (a former and now much-neglected joy), made cards the next and then was totally responsible about keeping up the homestead for one solid week? LOL That last one would be the downer week. (Note: We are empty-nesters and don’t kick up a big mess anymore so I have no guilt over my current level of negligence.)
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, how about I just post a few cards… These are based on this week’s OWH sketch #156. The paper already had appropriate verbiage so I left off the narrow strip. The papers are from Simple Stories Awesome pad. They are wonderfully masculine and have several sheets with smaller elements that are perfect for Project Life. The rest are perfect for cards. I have 12 cards in progress from this pad so far. It’s my current 6×6 challenge pad.
Crafters of any type will not want to miss the great design boot camp going on at Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps. This totally free design class is offered every Monday. Today is all about color theory. I’m linking up this card as examples of a color scheme inspired by nature. The papers are from that same Awesome pad.
What do you think of this new blog template I’m using? It’s growing on me very quickly. I love my header picture, which is a morning view from my parking spot at work. Hope you spot a good view nearby today!
