Sunny blue skies are here....yipppppeeeee!
After a weekend of non stop scrapping, a day at the beach is just what the Doc ordered!
Chilling out, hanging with friends, picnics, surf, a good book....perfect....simply perfect!
Hubs joined us late afternoon and we stayed til late just playing around....silly games...laughing and then laughing some more....he had made the guys a Sand board, (like a skate board - you stand on it and ride down the dunes), the guys loved it....but being adrenalin junkies they would!
Climbing up and down the sand dunes really tired them out and they all fell fast asleep as soon as their heads touched their pillows.....bless.
When we arrived home Hubs had a lil surprise for me!
The guys had been experimenting with Fimo over the weekend and had been "helping me" make some buttons....
Before joining us at the beach, Hubs had visited the local craft store to collect some more Fimo for me...isn’t he just the best:) Anyways...he spotted this fab dry felting set!
I’m going to play today and see what I can make....the colours are fab and match perfectly with some funky lil Fimo embellishments I have made!
I heard through the grapevine yesterday, about a lil competition and was in two minds as to whether I should enter as the deadline is like today!
When we arrived home from the beach, I sat trying to decide which LO's I should submit....after finally deciding it was past 10pm....I needed to make up a LO and have everything ready for posting this morning....OK so which piccie could I use for the set theme??
Another hour passed and I found the perfect one....it was quirky and would be fun to scrap, but the clock said 11pm and my body needed sleep.
Hubs was rolling his eyes a lil...he said I would regret it if I didn’t at least try and get my entries completed and posted off....so I soldiered on.....I dunno why but my heart wasn’t in it....I am so not a last minute scrapper.
I was looking for a quote I wanted to use on the LO, when I found this one in my lil book of scribbled quotes...
"I've learned that everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness and growth occurs while you're climbing it."
As the clock hit midnight I thought about that quote....was I happy doing what I was doing right at that moment....er nope! My body ached, I was tired and scrapping because I felt I had to, not because I wanted to....I packed away my stash...put the half finished LO "to bed" and climbed the apples and pears to join my man, feeling content that I had made the right decision....Scrapping should be fun right?
