Am I Brave Enough?
As you know, I have been working on my "space" - and yes, there is entirely too much stuff in there! *rolling my eyes* So I am cleaning out - and I realized that it's pretty ridiculous that I have no problem throwing away a scrap piece of paper (it could even be half of a 12x12) but I can't chunk a magazine to save my life. Not until I've looked through it, admiring all I seed and then look through it again to see if I want to save anything. And of course, there's always at least one or two that I want so I cut them out and glue them into a notebook. WHY??? I realized that I've done this for the last several years - but you know what? I NEVER go back and look at them. I can't recall one single time when I thought, "hey, let's make a card - I'll look in my notebook to see if there is anything I want to copy" And of course, wasn't that they whole point of starting the notebook anyway??? Crazy!
SO - I was looking at an old Stampers Sampler magazine and they have that column - variation on a theme - and I was like, hey - that's kinda me....I just keep using and using what I have out until it's gone, I'm bored or I run out of time. So, I had some stuff still out on my desk from yesterday's card and decided to use it up --- I mean, come on, I can't throw away Karen Russell paper!!! That's just crazy talk!! (OMG! That would make a great sentiment stamp - my sis and I say that all the time to each other!) Back on task - here's what I came up with. And I'm seriously considering sending them off --- I mean, not that I think they would ever be picked up....but just to have the guts to do it.
