This weeks class cards
I don't normally create cards to a specific theme when planning a class, rather generic style cards which can be adapted to the needs of the creator. But I have been asked for ideas for 'new home' cards recently.
And the second card I taught, simple cuttlebugging, simple stamping, simple design = simple card
I have also finished next months ATC's for the Stampman swap, get me being a whole month ahead of myself ! The theme was garden
I went with a little whimsy this time, not my usual style, but fun to do
I have also been busy with a very special circle journal, more details to follow shortly.
I will be back tomorrow with a card I made for a commission this week.
On a personal note, I am extra busy this week because I am attempting to take my mind off the fact that my daughter is in Leeds at the festival.
I know I am not the only mum that goes through this.
I just wasn't prepared for the way it would make me feel. Ironic really, I have spent the last 17 years teaching my only daughter how to be independent and the first time she shows a little independence I panic. She is with lifelong friends who are all sweet, good girls, she is sensible and practical and yet I am sat here worrying whether she is warm enough, safe, happy, hungry, and whether she is talking to some bloody weirdo.
Leeds feels like it is a million miles away and for some frustrating reason my natural ability to sleep at the drop of a hat has been completely obliterated. Last night was spent examining the ceiling (how do they manage to plaster so smoothly without it all dropping off onto their heads ? I can't even ice a cake !) Although, by all accounts, Amy had no sleep either as the girls managed to find a lovely place to pitch their tent, right near the DJ playing rave music til 5am. Lord knows what I am going to be like when they all eventually leave home !!!
Snowy is at a complete loss, he keeps wandering up and down the hall, moping, looking for her, under the bed, behind the door, in her wardrobe, tirelessly seeking out his playmate, he keeps looking at me with his cute little puzzled head tilted on one side and then glances back towards her bedroom door, yeah I know mate, I want her home too !
