Real Life is starting to interfere with my crafting time

I bought this pin a while back from The Grey Muse. Who knew that sentiment would become the topic of my blog post!

Unfortunately, last week I broke my arm. I wish I could say that I fell while dancing on a table, but I actually tripped on the vacuum cord as I was cleaning my craft room. This accident has prevented me from making cards. But in this first week of a long recovery, I’ve learned a few things. I mean, what I thought was true, has definitely been proven to be the case.

Truth #1: I need to create

I often joke that my crafting time is my therapy. It’s been a week of no crafting and I am one grumpy girl – just ask my family! I’m really missing that creative time!

I’ve also just received some new stamps and supplies and I am unable to try them out! It’s like being on a diet and someone sets a plate of brownies in front of you. It stinks.

Truth #2: Receiving a hand made card is magical

Some wonderful cards I received recently

I love sending cards. I really think about how my card can send a little happiness or express how much I care. I keep a list of cards that I need to make and add to it as I hear of things… like Sue’s cat just passed away or Ruthie got engaged. Anyway, I’ve gotten a couple of cards this week and those cards have transformed my dull, gray day into a bright, even sparkly, day! Of course I’m saving each of the cards. Knowing that my friends care enough to make and send me a card means so much. It reminds me why I love to send cards.

My point in writing this is that if you are a card maker, give yourself a little pat on the back. You need to know that you are making a difference in this world… one beautiful card at a time. Keep creating!

Also, you need to check out the Grey Muse: www.thegreymuse.com

Rubeena has all kinds of cool pins (many designed for card makers) and beautiful stamps too. Go treat yourself!

And don’t clean your craft room… it’s far too dangerous!
