I’ve just printed out thirty sheets of Felicity Jane digital papers and cut-aparts. Thirty.
The novelty of having a colour printer with a free ink deal may have sent me temporarily giddy.
I’ve been rather run down recently, hence the crummy radio-silence over here. I am sorry about that.
When I try and cram in too much, my body certainly lets me know about it!
I’ve recently been trying to establish a good social/alone balance.
I’m doing my housework and scrapbooking, but also loving my voluntary work, weekly Bible Studies and my Faithscrappers group.
But something has still been proving too much: I’ve somehow still been asking too much of each day.
Youtube has been the first thing to go – which has actually lightened the load an awful lot.
I have nothing but respect for the lasses who provide us with so much great quality youtube content… that whole process takes so much work!
After that, I needed to decide which activities were doing me good – being sociable, playing with Barbies, making things – and which might be next in line to be cut.
And as much as I’ve really enjoyed designing my own bits to play with, right now, I’m aware that I do need to press pause on the etsy work.
The simple fact is, there are just not enough hours in the day!
I’m so proud of all I’ve made and will hopefully return to designing more at some point, but for right now I’ll be working with what’s there, alongside the gorgeous Felicity Jane digitals.
I think it’s well worth having a look at the ways we choose to fill our free moments and deciding if the things we’re doing are those that bring us the most joy.
And what’s bringing me the most joy – and has done since the day I discovered it – is scrapbooking itself. And anything that trespasses onto my precious making time better watch out!
