I have been very busy the last week or two. It has been a couple of days since I've been in my craft room, and I've really missed it. You know we paper crafters need those regular doses of "paper therapy" to keep us sane!!
We are having a scrapbook and stamp donation drive for charity at work, so I spent time going through my things and saying goodbye to many items I just don't need to hang on to. The donations from our store are going to a shelter for domestically abused women, and I can't think of a better place. When I was in my early 20's, I was married for 3 years to a man that physically, emotionally, and verbally abused me. I am so grateful that God never took His hands from me, helped me free myself of that situation, and then later saw fit to give me Jerry and Shane. I know firsthand that working with paper, scissors, stamps, and colors brings healing within us. I firmly believe that even if we think we can't create, that voice inside of us will not be still until we do. Every woman is an artist!
After I was done, I sat down to create this card front to hang on my bulletin board. No matter how busy it gets, I want to remember to create every day. I picked up this Crystal Kluge stamp at the Paper Source, and all the other supplies are from CTMH.
I hope you all are having a great weekend. I teach a big class Valentine's Day class tomorrow at work - 17 people! Afterwards, it's football time here in Minnesota. Be sure to be cheering on Brett Favre and the Vikings!!
