So out of all that stuff I bought, there were a few things I couldn't find anywhere. I looked online even. So I go into work today and what do I find? The EXACT things I was looking for even though last week they didn't even carry these items! I couldn't believe it! Our little shop rocks. I had so much fun there today. I took home three different kitting projects to work on this week for some credit and I picked up a few kits for myself to play with when I have free time. I have a pile of (no joke) about 20 or so unfinished kits and projects. First off I have 5 Thanksgiving cards that I have to have done by tomorrow, so I can't start on my new kits yet. I am working on a Halloween mini album and a Christmas album too at the moment. Not to mention my Gratitude album, which I'm dying to start on! I don't quite feel like I have the energy yet though. Hmmm... Shouldn't have lied down!
On a totally different note, tomorrow I have a new little thing going. I am starting a little book group! I've never done anything like that and who knows when I'll have time to read an actual book, but I really wanted to do something to ground me a little bit. While I really love crafting, it gets me all hyper and I can't sleep! I want to make myself a new routine that includes at least 15 minutes to an hour of reading before bed so I can quiet my mind a little bit. Does anyone else struggle with that? If so, please give me some tips on what you do to relax! I used to be a little better at it than I am now. Now I have too many design ideas in my head!
I'm going to try to post a picture every day or two so today, I have a picture of a patchwork quilt card that I completed for my mom's friend. This was a super fun and easy one to do. It would be fun to make a challenge like this, but I've never done a challenge before. The day will come, I hope. Let me know what you think!
Well, I'm off to create some more cards and play with my toys! Have a great night everyone, I'll post more either tonight if I can't sleep, or tomorrow for sure!
