Wow, can you believe it's 2009 already! I don't think it really hit me until everybody went back to school last week. And then what a week I've had. I'm still sorting through a mountain of a 'to do' list. There's an art to separating the 'have to' from the 'want to' and the 'really want to', that I haven't mastered just yet. Besides sometimes being easily distracted, I'm artistic. I hear from a lot of artistic people that they think they are ADD( or know they are) I think it goes hand in hand. When I'm inspired, I drop everything so that I don't lose the inspiration.
And then there is the other problem that I face. When I get overwhelmed I shut down and play solitaire or something simliar, which by the way only makes matters worse! I set a personal record this year in that I am still taking down Christmas decorations. It's usually gone before New Years Day. The Boy loves to decorate, but will not take it down. I usually don't mind it, I've just been busy and tired this year so I am and have been in a state of taking the decorations down for a couple of days now. I really am going to finish today! I hope. I haven't forgotten about my prayer list either. I just haven't gotten it written up. Please if you are praying with me, continue to pray for those on the list. There are no new people to pray for, but there is one update that I know of. Continue to pray for all those on the lists over the last couple of months.
Want an example of how easily distracted I've been? I made a card yesterday, and went upstairs to get the camera to photograph it so that I could finally post to this blog and was distracted by several other things( who knows what?). By the time I remembered the camera, it was dark and I couldn't take the picture.
Anyway :) ... here is my simple card. I used a linen textured card stock and decided not to add anything to it. The Wishing Well and message are from Hambo's newest release. At least they are the most recent stamps I've purchased from them. Yes, I just checked they are brand new. The circles were cut with the Coluzzle because I haven't mastered the Nestabilities just yet. It's on my list of 'really want to do's'.
While I was at it I decided to stamp the envelope too. I just wanted the portion of the Wishing Well where the little bunny peeks out. I made a mask from a circle punch.
I'm determined to get a few more cards in the mail this week. I'm still working on Christmas thank you cards among others.
Sorry to post and run, but I've got to make some progress on that list of mine...
stay focused, Jacki!
P.S. Jillana's at it again! Thanks for checking out her Road Warrior story.
