I should have known better than to declare, here in public, that I was going to do something...
It's almost 6 in the evening and I'm just getting started with the actual card making. I FINISHED the cleaning and organizing (finally, yippee!!!) that I couldn't seem to finish before. Every time I'd start, I'd find something hidden or buried under a pile that I'd previously started and that would inspire creativity. Before I could stop myself, I'd find my self making cards and not cleaning. Today I was determined to finish. After all, I couldn't have the video camera in here with the mess. Still pictures is entirely different. I don't think I've ever actually had it totally finished before, because I remember moving stuff from one side of the room to the other for the pictures. Anyway, I digress. I also spent time this afternoon getting my hair straightened.
And the other reason I didn't get started earlier was I didn't want to make the videotape alone. It felt weird talking to myself. With this beautiful weather we are having, it's not hard to see why The Boy would choose going outside over staying in and making cards with his mom. The teenager did what teenagers do. She took a nap after her practice. She was up late last night and literally slept all afternoon. I'm going to call them and see if they are ready to play. I'm still hoping for company, but at this point, I'll work without them if necessary. Here are a few pictures while I wait for my artists to join me. You know, I should make this world card making week since my room is finally cleaned up. I can finally do those tutorials since the space is organized. In the meantime, I'm going to show you a couple of pictures of the cleanness and then get back to the creating. So without further ado, here is The Card Castle, October 2008
The first picture (above) is what you see as you enter the room.
