One Friday

As far as Friday's go this one was a little below average. I left my bed with sighs of regret and longing glances this morning (yes, you read right, the bed - shared only with the furry people). It was one of those days where I wanted to curl up, pull the blankets under my chin and snooze for the foreseeable future.

However, I am happy with these ATC's for the Scrapbook Designs (See my links) heritage swap, more shellac and some ephemera from Collections. I save my photos for one-offs. Scrapbook Designs is a fabulous paper arts store, and I am lucky enough to work there part-time. My work at the shop really balances school. I love the kids I teach, but they are not all keen to be at school or to learn, everyone who comes to the shop wants to be there - and enjoys themselves. I come home from work inspired to create, even when I am too tired to eat/clean/socialise. I also work with a group of inspirational women who create with as much passion as I do.

Oh , how well do I know that feeling of not wanting to leave my bed in the mornings!

Am sure it was hard to leave your furry people and go to work yesterday.

These ATC's are fabulous Julie! You are inspiring me to try Shellac (where do you buy that from?).

It sounds like working part time in the paper arts store provides a good balance for you. Am sure the women you work with find you inspirational and a pleasure to be around.

Isn't it interesting how we still have the energy to create when we are tired or ill? I can be bunged up with the flu and still immerse myself in art too.

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend.
