Sorry for yet another long absence! As I mentioned in my last post, card making has definitely had to take a back seat these days! But, I’m here with a quick card I made last night for some challenges. I used some yummy new Papertrey Ink stamps and My Mind’s Eye papers.
I wanted to do a quick post as it has been over a month. I was home in America visiting my family for a month and card making and blogging weren’t really in the picture – it was all about family time with Jacob and enjoying the sunshine. All good things.
I did manage 2 cards when I was home. I had to use very limited supplies – I was restricted to what I purchased when I was home and my mom’s collection of card making basics. It was a good exercise. This is what I came up with…
I look longingly at my craft room and wish I could find the time, energy and creativity to be in there, but I really don’t have any of those things. And, I feel guilty for wishing I could spend time making cards, when I should just be enjoying everyday with my sweet little guy.
So, I’m torn – I am so grateful for the time I have with Jacob – grateful I am not working, grateful we have had so many opportunities for fun and bonding – but, I’m still sad I have let my creative endeavours take such a back seat. I have also decided if I do get any time in my craft room I should be dedicating it to documenting Jacob’s life, despite not being much of a scrapbooker.
