Ever have a bad scrapbook or craft day?

Ever have a bad scrapbook or craft day?

Post by Chrissy » Mon, 22 Oct 2007 07:59:40



Today I decided that I was going to work on my son's layout.  I had
the paper and pictures all picked out and I had an idea.  The first
idea I didn't like, then I changed the layout around a little and
still did not like it.  Needless to say I wasn't pleased with the
layout no matter how I changed it.  So I put the stuff to the side and
didn't get that layout accomplished at all.

Then I decided I have an idea for a disney layout.  I print off the
pictures and sort through all my paper to find the right paper.  I
really need to get a paper organizer.  I finally find the paper and I
get working on my layout.  The left side of the layout is complete and
I am happy with it.  I go to work on the 2nd page but wait I don't
have no more paper in that color.  I search and search and search, no
luck.  I decide maybe I can miss match the layout, no don't like that
idea.

Then I decide I have this 12x12 sheet of little tiles that I bought on
Home Depot to turn into magnets.  So DH takes the sheet of tiles a
part for me.  I take out the stazon ink pad and the stamp keep sliding
and the ink looks all runny on tile.  So I put that idea to the back
burner for today along with the Dylan page and the 1/2 completed
disney layout.

I have a 2 page LO on my table that has been there for two weeks. I can't
seem to get it arranged the way I want it. I almost threw it away the other
day I was so upset with it.
I think I'm just hoping it will go away.

Yes, Chrissy I too have had one of those days.  The last time I had one of
those days... many things went wrong, but the last straw was when I went to
my colored paper holder to retrieve some white paper to get the ***
stamping done at least and I was out of white paper.  I took that as my cue
that I wasn't supposed to craft that day.

Some times we just need to start again on another day.  Once one has
gathered missing supplies and missing ideas you'll be surprise at how
creative you'll be next time.
