I decided I needed to make some cards tonight. It was one of those times when nothing worked like I had planned it. I made so many horrible mistakes and my garbage can kept getting more and more full. I really didn’t want to give up on the things I was trying, but should have quit long before I did. I had some images that I originally really liked, but then I kept adding things to them and in the end, they look pretty terrible.
I’m one of those crafters that is really hard on myself. If I make a lot of mistakes, I just want to throw in the towel and close the door on my craft room until I’m feeling better about myself. I wonder if other crafters do that. I’d love to hear that Lindsay pouts like I do. I’ll bet she doesn’t. She probably just paints something amazing and makes that into a card. I need to get motivated. I think I’ll make a mini album instead of a card, as our great niece is going off to college, and I thought it would be fun for her to have an album to fill with freshman memorabilia. I still have my college albums and wish I could part with them, but just haven’t been able to. Oh well, it’s something else I can put off for another day.
