Another Weekend At Home

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Mar 15, 2008 in Cards, Crafts |

Again, we tried to get up to our place at the mountains this weekend, but this time, Mike was sick.  So we’re spending another quiet weekend at home.

I thought that this would be a great chance to try to make some more cards to enter in the Stampin’ Up! Artisan contest, so I headed back to my craft room bright and early this morning…and this afternoon, I walked back out, head hung low. 

I was not happy with any of the things I made – and I didn’t really make many things at all.  I don’t know if it’s just a case of crafter’s-block or if I’ve lost it altogether.  Ideas were just not flowing the way they used to for me – it was very frustrating.

The funny thing is it was just the opposite at work the other day.  After a very long meeting discussing some pretty complex issues, I was told that I still "have it" (not sure if I ever REALLY had it, but I’ll take the compliment).  I’m remembering that if you speak with a confident, authoritative voice, people think you know what you’re talking about (even if you don’t).  But it is all coming back to me faster than I thought it would.  Soon I may actually really KNOW what I’m talking about. :)

Anyway, now that I have ‘it’ at work, have I lost ‘it’ with crafts?

Here are the not-so-exciting cards I made this morning (it’s safe to post them – I will NOT be entering these cards in ANY contests, that’s for sure!)…

P3150006

By the last card, I had just given up and threw on some ribbons and a rub-on so that I can at least give it to someone with a gift.  They’re not horrible cards, just not contest-worthy.   I had to just walk away from the stamps for a little while.

So I think I’m going to try to participate in the SCS challenges this week to get my creative juices flowing – hopefully, the juices aren’t all dried up by now…
