I have to say that sometimes I just want to throw in the towel on card making. The last two nights, I’ve made cards and didn’t like them. The first card was iffy, so I kept the video in case I’m ever seriously desperate to put a video online. Last night’s card was a total failure. After I put the Glossy Accents on it, I really thought it was redeemable, but, unfortunately, it wasn’t. I worked on it again this morning and then decided it was time to give up. So I deleted the video and the card is sitting on my desk while I contemplate throwing it in the trash. These are the things that happen when you just don’t have a plan.
I’d had two Rubbernecker stamps sitting on my desk for over a month with a vague idea of what I planned on doing with them. Tonight I put my plan into action and I finally have a card that is video worthy. I often wonder if other crafters have as many fails as I have, but it might be too depressing to consider. I would prefer to think that they fail as many or more times than I do, as it makes me feel better thinking that way. Not that I want anyone to fail, I just want them to fail one more time than I do. That still seems wrong. I might need to rethink this failure idea.
The other HUGE accomplishment was getting my taxes ready to take to our tax preparer. Is that the correct term? I’m not sure. Anyway, I spent the afternoon going through everything I had, and made sure I’ve got things organized for her. You’d think I’m getting ready to do surgery on someone with all of the preparation I’ve done. I’m not sure what’s left for her to do, since I’m so obsessive about making sure I don’t forget to take something with me. Let’s just hope I’m not crying when I leave there, as I dread sitting there, and break out into a cold sweat when they say, “Let’s see where we stand.” Yikes! Oh well, tomorrow is the big day and we’ll wait and see how things go.
