A fresh wind
I realized the other day that perhaps the reason why I haven't crafted lately is because of my craft desk. It's full of awesome tools and inks and such, but it was also covered - completely - with the remnants of my last couple of projects. I spent a whole evening one night this week (hubby is away working the whole week long!) and felt like I had a brand new crafting area when I was done. Of course, I did! I sat there and made a card for a friend who wants to be pen pals again... she's grown tired of electronic communication, and I can't blame her - but that means I need to up my crafting activity since I can't in good conscience send my life-long best friend/new pen pal a store-bought card! The second letter she sent me even requested one - so I had to get on it. I was so glad to spend the evening getting my crafty area ready for me to just assault it again - and it was such fun to get up and fix myself an iced-cold Dr. Pepper and create something brand new for my bestie. This morning I made another card... and want to do more this weekend.
I also had purchased a workshop from TwoPeas.. "Tool School" with Jenn Gallacher. Oh my GOSH is it awesome! If you haven't purchased it, do yourself a favor. Jenn is really ispirational and will get you thinking about the things you already have in your arsenal in a completely new way. I still have one more installment of the class to watch, so I think I'll go do that now... plus I have some new cards to post!
If you've been in a dry spell, try a mini-workshop... or watching some YouTube videos... or just re-organizing some of your stash, and you'll never know what ideas you'll get. Plus.. it's that time of year! Time to work on all sorts of awesome scrap opportunities with fall photos and holiday cards, too. Have fun!! :)
