Well, I've made it to another Friday afternoon not knowing where to begin or what to do. I'm torn between being creative or just sitting back and relaxing before my weekend begins. I don't know about you, but on Fridays I find it hard to do anything but catching up on some me time. I find that when one is creative, ones mind tends to wander from project to project (mentally.) When that happens to me, I get this feeling of being overwhelmed and cannot make up my mind about what it is I want to do!
This afternoon was no exception. I started out with some Praise and Worship and Bible Study. This is the easy part because it requires no thought on my part -- being in God's presence has a way of setting the atmosphere and clearing the clutter from my mind. I then prepared dinner for my mom and settled down to watch a show on TV. It was during this period of rest that I started wondering where to begin and what to do creatively. I checked my email, saw a few emails I subscribed to with different techniques to try, but frankly, I was still not motivated. This brought me to writing this post. I think I made up my mind to just let myself relax today and start off tomorrow fresh and with a clear mind.
I won't leave you without something to view, though. I made the following card on Wednesday, September 26th. It was my older sister's birthday and I decided (last minute) to bake her cake (we meet for Bible Study on Wednesday evenings at church). Needless to say, I was stumped for a layout for the card. I then remembered an email I received from Bird's Cards with a card she'd made. I loved the simplicity of the card, but more than that, I loved how elegant it looked, so I tried making my own version of this card. I made this card the old fashioned way -- cutting and pasting. There was no e-cutter involved, just my paper cutter, scissors, a paper punch, the Cuttlebug, bling, ribbon, and a stamped sentiment. See? Simplicity and elegance. Enjoy!
