Monday morning after one of “those” weekends. You know the kind that leave you more stressed out than relaxed? Yeah. One of those. In fact, it’s been a hectic few weeks, with some major health concerns with my husband happening, trying to get to the bottom of that while also dealing with my own low energy due to adrenal fatigue.
Finally, I’d had enough and decided what I really, really wanted to do was to create something pretty. So that’s exactly what I did! I had this Basic Grey card kit that I’d been hoarding for a while, and when I finally got to sit down to scrap, it just seemed to catch my eye.
“That’ll be easy!” I thought. Well, if you’ve ever assembled a Basic Grey kit of any kind, you know that simple they are not, but I had the best time cutting and scoring and folding and putting this paper together with that. I just got to lose myself in the creative process for a while, and it was amazingly therapeutic.
Sometimes mojo’s just hard to find. Even if you have a handful of kick-butt prompts to guide you. Sometimes life’s just hard. When it is, give yourself a break from all the stress and worry. Sit down and play with pretty papers. See if it doesn’t make you feel profoundly better. I bet it will.
How do you get going again after one of “those” weeks? I’d love to know – please leave a comment below.
