The creative flow...

Well, while looking at the html codes for this blog to help Rebecca with her placement woes I noticed a new color scheme in the templates and just have to try it out for a while. I'm afraid I'm one of those people who likes change and I get bored with the same look so you may see my blog change from time to time. Wish I could change my look as easily.

I had a wonderful weekend. I started it on Friday. Woke up and it was "that time" and decided that I didn't want to face the world so played hooky from work. I didn't accomplish all I would have liked (like finish printing wedding pictures for my brother's album) but I had a gloriously lazy day in front of the tube. I did find that Daisy D's had paper on sale for 18-23 cents so had to buy a bunch of it. Stocked up on some that will come in handy for Christmas projects.

Saturday, Rebecca and I got together to work on our various projects that we can't show yet. Of course we did need a bit of shopping therapy so we hit Hobby Lobby for some of the sale items. At first I was grabbing everything I might want in the acrylic stamps and rub-ons and then had a reality check. These things will go on sale again so I put most of it back and just got a few treats. I actually spent less than Rebecca this time.

It was nice to work at home and not deal with all the bodies and noise at Archivers and we will be there next weekend. I think the only drawback was that my mom's dog was house bound (he found a girlfriend whose mother was not pleased) and he was whining all day long. Can't say I've ever seen such persistence.

I started a new project Saturday and was just having too much fun. The whole creative process just makes me so happy. I wish I could do it full time and explore even more avenues but I'll just be thankful for what I do get to do. I'm also thankful that I get to make things for other people that they enjoy. I know I like looking at my creations but it's nice for it to be a pleasure to others. It's like when I cook a dinner for friends or family and they really enjoy it. Makes the labor worthwhile.

I did miss getting to visit with Misti and Kimberly. Rebecca and I have such a good time but it is fun to see her and Kimberly in action. Misti is about to burst with her new baby so I won't get to see her for a bit. We'll have to have another scrap at home so she can bring her baby without worrying about logistics in a store.

Well, I have this pesky job so I better get back to it.
