I loved making the peek-a-boo card to help my friend Kelly, who really struggled with it. It wasn’t an easy card to master and I’m still not very comfortable with it. I spent most of the day yesterday working on my craft room. I wanted to go through all of my tools and supplies and decide which ones I’ll be using and which ones I’d like to donate to the women in Puerto Rico. I have so much stuff and I’m ashamed that I have let it get so out of control. I have embellishments that I must have thought I would use at some point, but aren’t anything I’d really every use. In the beginning, I bought things thinking I would make cards for kids and cards for men etc., and that’s really just not the case. I primarily make “thinking of you,” get well, thank you, sympathy and birthday cards. The birthday cards I make are almost always for women (except Rich’s card), so masculine themed cards just aren’t something I make many of.
To make a long story short, I’m really starting to make a dent in the huge piles of craft supplies I own. I’m happy about it, because now I feel like I have a grip on my supplies, whereas before, I felt like they owned me.
I can’t wait to finish my de-cluttering, so that I can make the boxes and get them in the mail. I know it will be a huge weight off of my shoulders when I hand them to the post office to send. I can’t wait.
