Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Show Respect For Your Body
My final arrival time back in Denver was yesterday morning at 5 a.m. I was exhausted! When I was a lot younger I could stay up late and get up early and somehow be coherent and energetic. That's not the case now! I slept for about 2 hours once I arrived home, but my body clock was all upside down. So I got up and walked Buddy and then spent most of the day on the couch. Then my body decided it was time to go on strike and I began to have my classic migraine systems. My body was letting me know that I had not shown it the respect it requires and I was paying the consequences. I was in bed, with lights out, by 8 pm last night. I slept almost 10 hours and am feeling a lot better today! I'm still taking things slowly but expect that by tomorrow I will feel like myself again. Time in the craft room is definitely a relaxing way to spend the day!
I began with a Chocolate Chip card base and stamped it with the Chevron background stamp and Illuminate ink. Next I added a torn piece of Venetian Romance designer paper and a crumpled piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped the six-sided image with half-strength Chocolate Chip ink and punched it out with the Hexagon punch. Next came a stamped greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes onto Pistachio Pudding card stock cut into a small banner. I added a neutral button with a glue dot. Next I stamped some lines from Gorgeous Grunge onto the card and finished with some Early Espresso baker's twine. I hope you like it and I hope you have a wonderful and creative weekend!!!!
