I could be one of those cave people who never had a calendar but would always have a general idea of what time of year it is based on what I'm doing. Obviously, snow versus sunshine is a good way to cheat that in northern Wisconsin, but aside from that, I always get the itch to craft and make things at the end of summer and fall. Always. It's like my brain needs a good dose of vitamin D to function correctly or something.
Long, long ago I used to do a post where I would showcase what I've been doing and I always had it coming up on Saturdays. I feel like I need to bring that back both because it's fun to showcase what you've done but also because I need an excuse to buy new crafty things.
Basically, Matt isn't buying my "I just want it because it's pretty" routine any more and is demanding I use it or lose it.
It's like I'm living in Nazi Germany over here between this and his demand I keep my book collection to the 5 giant shelves he built me.
Nobody should have to live like this.
If you know me at all, you know I love to get fun mail and I love to send fun mail. Sadly, we're a bit broke right now so I have a couple of fun, random packages almost ready for some friends, just because I love them, and I can't get them in the mail because they aren't totally complete yet. Soon. But what I do need to get in the mail are some birthday cards and some thank you cards. I pretty much depleted my store of them right after I had Penelope and I'm so serious when I say- you absolutely MUST write a hand written thank you when you get a gift. Don't be a douchebag. It takes less than a minute and it's so appreciated.
So these are what I whipped up using scraps of things I had from earlier projects. That's my next thing, making cards with the left over pieces from scrapbook pages. Because truly, I hate to waste usable pieces when pretty paper is usually around $.60 a piece. It adds up when you see how much I buy because I have a problem that I refuse to admit to.
Buzzkill, he is.
