So, this week I seem to have been busy squaring up and finishing off some autumnal works of art - oh, OK then, call them cards. And all the time, I'm in the mood to make a few Christmas cards. Why does that happen? I do not know. But it gets in the way of what I'm meant to be doing. Or rather it doesn't, but it makes me impatient to move on. To this end, I've finished, tidied (really - even cleaned a whole overflowing basket of stamps) and started on a few Christmas ideas. The card above is not a product of today's snatched desk time. No. It's one I made for an event earlier this month, and which, if you're coming to the WOYWW Crop, you can make tomorrow. You can see how simple it is. So anyway, back to today. I've had a couple of ideas rolling around in my head for single layer cards to help the old 'quantity making' along. I spent ages and wrecked about 5 cards before I even got the idea from my head to a card, let alone before it started to look familiar as the idea I started with. But, these snags have not diminished my enthusiasm for the job at hand. Yet. Maybe that's because I'm so busy that I'm falling into that 'give a busy woman another job and she'll make time to do it' category. Maybe I'm starting to feel that inevitably, my attention must turn toward this Season. Maybe I'm scared that I'll get left behind. Or maybe, just for once, it's because with no immediate deadline or reason for making them, I'm feeling like having a bit of fun. Gawd, I'll be using glitter in a minute!
Have a super weekend.
