CARD FOR A FRIEND
I'm amazed to find that a week has passed and I haven't made a thing - except this card for a friend, which uses a Crafty Individuals stamp which I watercoloured and some K & Co paper.
It's partly that I'm short of motivation, but mainly my lack of productivity has been owing to a minor revolution in my Studio. I've had quite a clear-out (though there's plenty more to do) which has made me feel positively virtuous! I had stuff in my cupboards which hasn't been touched since we moved here two and a half years ago, so I decided to donate the lot to a good cause ...
Some of it related to a hobby I once loved but no longer enjoy - yet I felt very mixed about closing the door on it. Now I feel I can, and that it's OK to say that "I don't do that any more".
I do feel a lot lighter for having had a clearout - I no longer need to feel guilty about not using it etc so I'm clearly better off without it. There's more to do but I don't think I'll be quite so reluctant to throw things away or pass them on, having taken the first step.
Free yourself! Get rid of the stuff you no longer want or use, and gain cupboard space for lots of new stash .....
