Creative kerfuffle

argh! creative angst!

I am trying to make my St. Patrick's Day cards and I'm about ready to pull my hair out. Being creative does not come easily to me.

I have a wealth of ideas but somewhere between my brain and my desk, they all go south. I pull out papers and play around - I think I have an idea I like - I cut the papers and - BLECH! Me no likey! This drives me crazy about myself - why can't I see it in my mind before I cut into my papers???! I guess I just have a stinky eye. WAH!!!

Now I'm staring at the umpteenth version and it's back to the glitter and paste for me - may the leprechauns and sprites sprinkle me with magic mojo creative dust.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

If you enjoy paper crafts, The Toymaker has darling printables for you to make. Here are two of her Saint Patrick's Day patterns.

  1. Hi Sally! When all else fails, glitter, glitter, glitter. LOL!! And some sequins and sparkly things. They will be so blinded by your card, that they won't notice any flaws. Seriously, though, everything you make is gorgeous. I know they will be, too. Happy weekend, my friend! xox Pam

  2. Hi Pam!
    I've been working all day and tossing lots of glitter around teehee! I'm nearing the home stretch finally. Hurray hurrah!
    Happy weekend to you! xoxoxo

  3. Your cards will turn out great - glittered or not!
