I haven’t been crafting as many cards lately as I did, say, oh the 2 months before Christmas. For some reason I find it harder to create all occasion cards that are attractive. I find inspiration on Pinterest, through some magazines, various blogs – but when it comes down to it, Christmas cards just seem to be my thing.
It’s blank inside… which makes it perfect for a girlfriend’s birthday, a wedding shower, or just because. It’s simple… but I feel like it’s just missing something.
I’ll have to set aside some time to card-make using the tons of photos and cardmaps I’ve clipped and saved…. first I have to find the desk in my craft room. Why is it so hard to keep my creative space neat?
PS – I’m off a day on my photo-challenge-inspired blogging… cards were yesterday, black & white is today. I had to get some broken molars repaired last night – again – and wasn’t feeling up to blogging when I got home. This is the second time they’ve fixed them and I have no idea how I keep breaking them in the same spot. I really wish they’d stay ‘fixed’ though – the ladies at the dentist’s office and Dr. Gold, himself, are all lovely… but it’s not my favourite place to hang out. I like my space and hands in my mouth is just way too invasive *shudder*. I walk away from every appointment with a tension headache and my poor gums are so bruised. I deserve chocolate. Or a frappucino. Or a Tim Horton’s mango smoothie because they’re my new favourite drink in a town that has limited coffee shop options.
