Seems like every so often I need to stop.think.re-focus. I tend to get so carried up blogging--just to blog that I tend to get burned out and then I rush through my cards and projects and end up not liking them. I don't know why I do it, but I do.
I also tend to get lazy. I have so many supplies, so many stamps but yet I grab the same things over and over.
So I took some time, re-evaluated things and decided that I don't need to be in a rush. I can take my time. I can focus on doing things that make me happy, that excite and challenge me.
I've taken several online classes and I've noticed that I get really excited about them and then, once again, all the things I learned get pushed to the back burner and I move on.
I am decided that I need to really get my money's worth out of them all and actually USE the classes! Try the techniques, practice the coloring, try the new cards, etc.
I also took one more online class this week, Clean & Simple Cardmaking. I'm always in awe over CAS cards but they intimidate me so I figured why not challenge myself to learn more about them. I'm so glad I did!! I loved this class and am saving my pennies to take the 2nd one!!
With all this rambling, my hope is that I can slow down, enjoy the creative process, use my supplies and knowledge and have fun!! Hopefully this will come through in my creations that I share and will hopefully inspire you to do the same!
This also has me thinking about commenting on blogs. It is something I really do enjoy doing but sadly, it takes me 2-3 hours a day if I leave comments for all the blogs I enjoy. I think I am going to designate a few days a week to comment and then the rest of the time I can be creating. Just know that I do look and enjoy blogs daily, just might not always be able to leave a comment!
Thanks for stopping by today--I really do appreciate all of you who take time to visit my blog!!
