Calm Down and Take A Breath...

Hi folks...the cubbyhole is NOT a happy place right now...the resident crafter has turned into a grumpy old woman and her furry companion has deserted his post preferring the quiet life in the front room with Dad. Old habits die hard and I'm so used to having everything at my fingertips so production has slowed down considerably...I did try making a list of what I needed for each project but hey ho...this is crafting and if you're anything like'll change your mind umpteen times throughout the process so I've been running hither and thither "did I put that in the kitchen or the garage" but eventually I managed to finish next Monday's Simon Says Stamp DT project but not without the shedding of a lot of blood (only kidding) sweat and tears and a few choice words thrown in for good measure.
So my Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit may have arrived just in time to save my sanity...I decided to set myself a "calm down and take a breath" challenge to use just what's in the box...
and made two very stress free "as simple as it gets" cards...

I'm planning another "keeping my chin up" day...I'm off to source the flooring for the cubbyhole (hunky joiner may be able to come and lay it next week...fingers crossed) and then I'm meeting up with a special friend for lunch...a girl's gotta to do what a girl's gotta do.
Toodle-oo for now

  1. Hi Kath,
    Great photos of your trip yesterday, I loved reading about your antics. I do hope you find the flooring you want today and especially a lovely hunk to lay it for you.

  2. Enjoy your 'hunk' hunting....oops, I mean 'flooring' hunting LOL
    The makes look lovely - a bit of colouring in always helps to calm things down. Have a successful day.

  3. Loving your sneak peek, your cards are lovely too - that flamingo is just adorable. Good luck with the flooring and I really hope he does turn up next week (not just because he is hunky...)! Have a lovely lunch with your friend, a break away from the cubbyhole chaos sounds like a good plan to me... Hugs, Anne xx

  4. Love your very on-trend cards Kath.
