I have said this a few times, whether in type or by word of mouth but it seems that any time I get to craft is when I am asked to help do something for someone else. I love this. Twist my arm and make me be creative. Whether its handouts for a class or helping a neighbor create her Christmas gifts it gives me the excuse. Last week my sweet Grandmother passed away, quite quickly actually. My mother asked me, "since I do that sort of thing", lol, to collect pictures of our family with grandma and put them on a poster board. Well I had thousands of pictures to sift through and only 2 days to get it together but I did create something somewhat presentable I think. I was grateful that I had ordered the Clementine paper kit on a whim and had it on hand, it worked perfectly.
Hope this gives you some creative inspiration next time you are under the clock ;)
