Today's Lesson From The Craft Room:  Set An Intention
I woke up this morning and decided I needed to finish creating the rest of the projects for my upcoming Stamp-a-Stack this weekend.  And here I am, at the end of the day (it's night time on Wednesday as I am typing this) and I did it!  I finished creating the cards and treat holders and I cut all the card stock and organized the supplies.  I am once again impressed by the power of intention.  So many times I don't set my intention - and I find myself lost in my minutes - flittering here and there through mindless and meaningless activities - not being purposeful.  I don't believe I have to be actively doing something of substance every minute of every day.  I am a strong believer in just being.  What I am not happy with is when I'm in the limbo - when my doing has no intention or when I am not allowing myself to just be.  So I am working on setting my intention - whether it is toward what I spend my time doing or just allowing myself to be.
Today's card began with the thought of putting wings on a heart and grew from there.  I used a scallop circle as a mask to do some sponging with Marina Mist to create the sky.  The retired Sanded background stamp adds some grit to the background.  I hope you like it!

I love the wings! I finally figured how you did them. And your post really hit home with me. I've had two snow days this week and I spend way too much time futzing around and then when I finally get going it's late and I run out of steam.
