Tonight I was out of steam. The boys and I did a morning of trampolining, then I made tortillas so I could make tacos, which turned into tacos for 7 children and a backyard ball game and some seriously competitive Duck, Duck, Goose. Then during bedtime I got smacked in the face with a large Buzz Lightyear doll. I was tired. I was grumpy. My face hurt. I wanted to curl up on the couch and watch Gilmore Girls and
have a glass of wine eat gummi bears.
So I went downstairs. I sat down at my table...and suddenly everything just felt better. I grabbed some Zoe paper and my Lovely Birthday stamp set. I whipped up a simple card using the new CAS(E) this Sketch challenge sketch. It took ten minutes, tops. My heart was lighter. The grumpies were gone. Just one moment out of this busy, wonderful day just for me.
Today CTMH shared this blog post about why Scrapbooking is good for you. Reading it made me smile and really struck a chord for me. Plus, I'm in the first photo on the post, laughing with my girls at Convention, and just enjoying spending time doing something good for me. This feeling, THIS is why I craft. Thank you for being here with me every day. Hugs!
