to finish all the projects I promised you. Sigh....
Every year it's always the same thing......October starts with high crafting expectations, promises of never ending projects and lots of candy eating. With the exception of the "lots of candy eating" it always ends the same way.... with regret, unfinished business and a whole load of Halloween paper that never got touched. I was at Paper Tales a few weeks ago clutching the Pink Paislee paper I put away for the "often talked about, but never produced" mixed media scrapbook journal that I was going to teach.
With Michelle standing next to me rolling her eyes, I said my fond farewell to the paper. With a tear down my cheek, I told it "that we could've had it all" a la Adele and that I will never forget how much I loved its green damask texture and fancy black border. That maybe next year we could......When I was rudely interrupted by "Oh, for pete's sake it sounds like your going to a funeral. Just put the damn paper back on the rack."
To which I countered, "but maybe next year I could..."
"But there's still two more weeks! I can always...."
"No. Really. I know I can...."
Whatever. I still bought a couple more sheets so I can finish what I started for the boys......
So, did someone say Christmas?
Oh Christmas....do I have plans for you.......
Talk to you soon! Karin
