I made these cards on Saturday. I looked forward to the day all week long, knowing I was finally going to have a day to myself (well, after having breakfast with hubby, and doing some errands in the morning). I brewed a pot of coffee and headed up to my craft room, ready to create in ignorant bliss. Sounds great, right? Well, not so much.
I had nothing....nothing!!! I looked through my stamps, put some stamp sets on my desk, pulled some of my favorite papers out, and checked out the current challenges on my favorite blogs. STILL nothing was coming....no mojo/ So, I decided to catch up on some phone calls. And while I chatted, I moved my 'stuff' around on my desk, straightened, fingered through my ribbons and gems, and started matching up fibers, gems and ribbons with papers. Then I saw it......the feather drawer! Ahhh, I LOVE feathers. So I pulled some of those out as well, And, as luck would have it, I found a challenge that called for using..wait for it......yep, feathers on your project. That was it....I was in business. My mojo was coming back (of course, by then it was dinner time). Then, finally, I got to stamping, cutting, mixing and matching, and having FUN! Alas, I was feeling great, and enjoying what was left of my day and night of creating!
