Sometimes by the time Friday afternoon rolls around, I am so spent from the week’s activities, I just want to do SOMETHING creative or crafty just to let my spirit know that there’s more to life than the busyness that seems to gobble me up.
A couple of Fridays ago, I finally opened up a Stampin’ Up order that has been sitting on the table for over two weeks. It was almost time to go and pick up Leah from gymnastics and I so wanted to play. I only had 35 minutes available so, I set the timer on my iPhone and went to work using my new toys (watercolor crayons and a new stamp set) and pulled out some old ones too (chalk from 10 years ago and watercolors just as old, that I have never used!).
I managed to get the foundation of four greeting cards done and felt like I’d conquered a bit of the busyness that had consumed me all week. What are some ways you try to gain back control when the busyness of life takes hold?
