anything you can do...
just kidding (about the title).
i don't really think like that, but as of late (well, and really the past 8 years of my life), I've discovered a complex that I have.
Yes, I have a complex and I'm going to discuss it here at this forum. Go call the WAAAhhmbulance.
I have this obsession with looking at a million inspiring and wonderful blogs/websites with beautiful images and awesome projects/paper goods and think, "That is so cool. I could totally do something like that." Or I see something neat on ETSY and think, "I could make that." Then I start feeling bad that I am NOT doing things like that with my life, and start making plans and shifting my priorities so I can "do it all"----but then, my list gets buried under the mail, or chewed up by little M. and I forget---rinse and repeat.
So, folks, I'm not a TOTALLY changed woman.
However, I did DO something.
Luckily, Aaron stepped in, to save the day, and for Mother's Day, awarded me 5+ hours to lock myself in my happy room and accomplish these things (along with backing up my entire photo collection, my computer's life, printing cards, and the like). It was heaven. I'm thinking this could be the start of a lovely tradition.
Who needs flowers these days? I say, give me the gift of TIME.
Seriously, I don't remember the last time I was BORED. If you looked around this joint, you'd see I have too many projects on my queue (sorry, we do Netflix).
So, with no further adieu, here are just three of the many things accomplished on that good day.
These are available right this minute for purchase in my shop. Give me a little bit more time and I'll show you the rest soon.
