The Number one son was visiting this weekend and it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get near the computer, let alone see it! Love the young man dearly, but between him and the hubs it is not likely that we can co exist in this environment! Today, Monday August 21st in the year of our Lord is “Back To School for the 3 kids. I took the ceremonial walk with the other happy smiling parents to the little red school buildings and then back home… I am now alone. Aside from my poor dog having an epilepsy siezure out in the yard the day has been very uneventful.
I have blown almost $several hundred dollars on Ebay looking for supplies to enhance my lowly scrap repertoire! Here is my “center” of gravity, my desk. I commandeered my husbands old work bench from the garage because it was a good height for sitting or standing, as I am almost 6′ tall. I can sit here and look at the ribbons, fibers and buttons and become inspired to create something! That is if Number One Son or the Hubs is not in my chair…
Sometimes I can surf the net and visit my sources of inspiration listed on my blogroll, sometimes I can look at past issues of Creating Keepsakes and glean ideas for layouts and then again…I can look at my shelf and all the inspiration I need is right there!
Saturday, my son asked me if I was afraid of dying. I seriously thought about it before I answered him. Was he anxious, trying to instigate a serious conversation or just wondering…? “Yes”, I told him, “I am so afraid that I will die before I get a chance to do all of the things in life I want to create and or experience. That is why when I cannot sleep, I get up and tinker. It helps me fulfill my goals of creativity and inspires me to keep dreaming “.
