Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: Just When You Think You're Making Progress, Set Backs Come To Test You
I guess in the grand scheme they aren't big set backs. I mean right now I have a girlfriend who is about to start chemo this week and another friend who fell and knocked himself out in the bathroom and needed stitches. So who am I to complain? And yet, I am. I was feeling relaxed over the holidays - settling in to being at home without having to travel to and from airports and cities and hotels. And then, somehow, the settling in turned into getting riled up :( My computers - yes, both of them, decided to start acting up, my journal decided to go missing under the piles and stacks of papers that I have around (at least that's where I am hoping it is and not missing in some hotel room somewhere), and my body decided to act up with headaches :( Ugh! Just when I thought I was making some progress, these set backs came to test me...and, I have to admit, I failed the test! I let it all get to me. I got frustrated, pissed off, upset - you name it. So here I sit, typing this, wondering where the peace I had found just a week ago has gone. The good news is that I know it is possible to find it again - there is hope. I'm determined to pass the test the next time it shows up!
Today's card was a simple birthday card for a cousin. I used the Papilion Potpourri stamp set with Smoky Slate ink. I brought out the dazzling diamonds glitter because, after all, what is a birthday without some bling! :) The sentiment is from Petite Pairs. I hope you like it :)
