Stress stress stress

So, with two thirds of the summer holidays gone, I feel like I have achieved NOTHING.

Worse than that, I have actually gone backwards in some areas – like I reckon I’ve put 1/2 a stone back on over the past 4 weeks. Bleepity-bleep.

Have you seen how few cards I’ve made? And, apart from 1 single dress, the sewing machine has been back in it’s home. No quilts finished/started, no table mats or wall hangings.

School stuff is scattered all over our dining room table – but nothing is finished.

And I feel STRESSED.

Not fun.

But here’s a card I totally CASEd from Noora at Searching Soul and by CASEd, I mean as close as possible without the exact materials. If I’d had those, this woulda been a twin card.

* background is cuttlebugged with Stylised Flowers

* ink is onyx versafine

* flower image is Smartworks

* leaf image is ? sorry !

* painted with orange Twinkling H2O’s and embellished with pink stickles.

Anyhow, off to do MORE school work, then going to watch Sleeping Beauty with DD while doing planning for school. Yeah, teachers get GREAT holidays…!

      Thank you, dear mother – I wouldn’t have DARED to say aged. However, it is used to describe fine wine, I suppose …and cheese !

    Only ONE dress and a FEW cards – what are you? Superwoman?!! And only 1/2 a stone back on too… I’ll tell you what else you’ve achieved: you’ve given me a lot of pleasure reading your blog and also made me feel like a million dollars by leaving a lovely message on my blog!
