.......since I made something.
I have been so busy with behind the scene stuff that I forget that sometimes I am allowed to please myself. Do you ever get like that? Im most happiest when other people are having a good time. I admit it - Im a people pleaser. Anyone that knows me will know that. I go with the flow, I usually do what other people want to do and as long as everyone is having fun then I really don't mind.
But seriously and only sometimes I forget to do things for myself. Like take a selfishly long bath or go and watch a bit of TV during the day or make myself a proper cooked lunch. This also includes making a layout "just because".
For the last few years I have made layouts on DT's because I had products and deadline. Now thats all gone I feel completely bereft but also relieved that the pressure is off. Or do I? No. The motivation has jumped in the drain and washed out to sea.... its completely vanished. Vamoosh, scram and left in a trail of blaze. I have made nothing for the past two weeks and its making me feel really really low.
So yesterday, after making sneaks for PACS Italy
(are you coming to that - you really should.... info for PACs is HERE and is now open for registrations...flights with easy jet are dead cheap!)) I also made this. I used some stampin' up card, stamps and ribbon along with a test tube that I filled with French Lavender - kind of like a gift card. I don't have the scallop punch so for effect I punched out a few little circles, snipped them in half and made a fake punched scallop edge!
Quite pleased with it actually. Im going to make up some more samples for my first Stampin Up party on Friday and make way for a few more SU parties in 2 weeks or so. I am in love with Stampin Up products but Im struggling with their restrictions on their terms of service. I don't think I can do it for much longer but here is holding out for the time Im with them as their inks have my heart.
