Okay… so I realize it’s been a little while since I did a scraptastic saturday post. Honestly? My life hasn’t left me much time for hobbies lately. LOL And scrapbooking is definitely a hobby. One I really enjoy, but a hobby just the same. So when life goes crazy, it’s the first thing to go.
Thankfully, I was able to make a little time for it this week. I didn’t get much done… but it did feel nice to be back at it, even for what little time I was.
As many of you know, I’m apprenticing at Polka Dot Plum. Yes, I’ve already designed a few kits… but I am new to designing, and I’m sure I have a lot to learn. And the apprentice program has already been a huge help. I am loving creating papers from scratch. Creating my own textures, creating my own photoshop brushes, and “painting” the digital papers. 🙂 Love it! It’s honestly such a zen activity for me. The rest of the world just disappears and I lose myself within it. Definitely worth finding the time for. Yay me!
For me, any creative endeavor is a stress release. It’s always been that way. And lately, I’ve really needed a release.
Had four paragraphs written here… LOL But you don’t REALLY need to know all the boring details, so I deleted them.
I’m busy. I’m tired. I need some ME time. End of story.
So today I baked, I did laundry (which I actually don’t mind doing… it can be a rather Zen activity), and I worked on a quilt.
I forgot about all the things that really NEED my attention, and just did things for me and for Lily-Ann. The rest will all still be there tomorrow. I may be a little more stressed for not having done the work that I likely SHOULD have been doing… but I needed, more than anything, to do a little something for me and the wee girlie. So that’s what I did.
