Hello, I know we see each other every day, but I wanted to take this time to thank you for all the times you have been there for me. When I had a huge deadline looming, you were the one whispering in my ear, “don’t you want to be on the computer a little longer”. Or when the housework seen insurmountable, you wrapped your arm around me and led me to Starbucks, because the coffee I had at home just wasn’t cutting it. You’ve been around for so long, even back when I was finishing a 5th grade science project the night before it was due. I will always remember your sayings, “Why now, there’s always tomorrow” or, my favorite, “sure you can start another project, you only have 5 that need to be done now.” Even now as I type this, you are helping me forget the customer’s quilt I have on my machine. You are absolutely right, I can always work on it later tonight. I know some people like to call you by a different name, Creative ADD, but we are close enough that I can just call you Pro. And with a name like Pro, you’ve got to be good, right? I would so love to write this letter a little longer, but I am thinking that I might like to take a nap. There’s always time to finish it tomorrow………..
Ok, that’s enough creative writing for me. But, seriously, why do we (I say we, because I am sure I am not the only one who deals with this) always put stuff off? So frustrating. And now, I have another great reason to put off doing the things I should:
My super wonderful husband got me a new camera for Mother’s Day. I say it’s a Mother’s Day gift, but in reality it is a gift for every occasion for the next 2 years, but I think it’s worth it. All my super cool bloggy friends have awesome pictures on their blogs and I wanted them too. Plus, I reasoned with my husband, I could take pictures of the kids. We could save money not paying for their portraits! It’s a win/win!
I recently finished a purse for my sister-in-law, and now I had the perfect subject to test out my new camera. I had made one and blogged about here. When my sister-in-law saw it, she asked me to make one for her. Since her birthday is coming up, it will be an early birthday present.
Using this tutorial, I added a cute little flower on the front.
