this will just have to do I guess. I am wallowing in rotten right now. I look rotten, I feel rotten, I probably even smell rotten right now. TMI I know but you know me and honesty…today I even feel like a rotten Auntie. I take care of the world’s cutest little boy while his Mommy works. He and I spend an insane amount of time together. It is so fun being 3 with him…we play hard and laugh harder. Except for this week because laughing and playing hurts. I think he misses me…today he’s been really needy. Every 5 minutes it’s been “so Auntie guess what”…I have wanted him to go back to sleep since he got here. I feel rotten for not having the energy to laugh and play with him like I normally do. Hopefully I can feel better soon.
Usually when I’m feeling rotten about something, I decompress with paper, glue, ink, ribbon, stamps, die cutting machines, paper trimmers, corner rounders, my crop-a-dile…you know all the usual crafty things. It’s my drug I suppose and right now I’m jonesing for all things crafty severe. I don’t see that happening today though…sitting up is a challenge right now. Before I resume my prone position, let me share something I made a while ago…yes, from scraps again.
Once I’m feeling better I’ll make a video showing how I tie bows. If you can’t wait that long though, go to http://amazingpapergrace.com and look under Becca Bits and watch her bow videos. I learned to tie mine from watching her tie hers. The stamps used come from the Owly Hoo Sentiments and Hoot Owl Accessories by K Andrew Designs. You can check them out below:
Here’s to hoping I can get my fix in later today or tomorrow. I may just have to suck it up and go in my freezing cold craft space regardless of how I’m feeling because I have to get a project made for the Getting Cricky Hop this Friday. I hope you’ll join us!
