The closer you get
I’ve been working on a project in which I have completed five scrapbook layouts in a week. As you can see, I haven’t been doing a lot of cleaning up after myself in the process. Tonight and tomorrow I have to figure out how to download the projects to an on-line gallery in hopes that editors, craft companies, etc. will see my work and decide they have to hire me.
I feed the kids when they whine, do the laundry as I run out of clothing, and try to make the house look presentable for DH when he comes home after a 16-hour work day.
Oh, did I mention the editor of the newspaper quit last week and I’ve been doing extra duty?
Crazy, I tell you, crazy.
But it’s better than boredom, depression or any of those other safe places I am want to go.
I just finished this layout moments ago. I selected the paper last night and pondered it while DH and I watched tapes of “Survivor,” “Grays’’ Anatomy,” and “CSI.”
Somehow I missed an hour and ended up going to bed at 1 a.m. I thought it was midnight, and wondered why I kept dozing off while watching “What Not to Wear.”
This morning DH slept in until after 7 p.m. (unheard of!) but I was struck with inspiration so I had to climb out of bed and put this page together.
I love it to bits. I think it’s because of the journaling. I had originally planned to do a bulls-eye design, but somehow it ended up being off center, which is totally cool with me.
