Day 59 Sunday

So I worked on the rest of my tags for a little bit today.  I didn't get a whole lot done-I am stuck as I don't think it looks finished.  I really think it needs those feathers.  I have realized one things in doing these swaps.  I want to do by my best work. If I can improvise with something in my stash that should be my first option, but if the project needs something that I don't have it is okay to go get it.  I realize we all don't have the same tastes, I just want what I send out to be something I am proud of.  So yes after much deliberation, I am going to get black feathers tomorrow.  Now I just have to have self control and only buy feathers. 

One other thing I did crafty related was rediscovering my stash.  I started going through my embelishment containers....I had flashes of "cool I forgot I had this" to "what was I thinking."  I found some great things that I can use on swaps without having to justify more shopping.

I think that not getting my paper order for the paper cake this weekend was a blessing in disguise.  I spent time with Josh today instead of being obsessed over getting that done.  I will be that way x 10 during the week.  Today we watched "Paul"  it was a stupid funny movie.  Just the thing I needed to get out of a funk. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend.



  1. Kelley, your tags are beautiful! I was on the Circle message board and left a post about your tags. I see that you have decided to buy the feathers! Wonderful! I can't wait to see the finished projects! You are so creative!

  2. I had a feeling it would come to that:) like you would ever submit a less than awesome swap! ha!
    Glad you got some good time in with Joshy and weren't stressing about the project.
