... there's a way... just. Squeezed into a toddler nap gap today was a bit of stamping.
So many times in the past I have intended to send thank you cards to our friends for gifts they're given the kids, but haven't gotten around to it. The issue tends to sit in my mind nagging me until it's so late that I finally admit it's pointless, that I've missed the boat. In fact, if I'd spent all those little bits of time actually doing them, they'd be done... arghh! Know what I mean?
The other thing that sometimes holds me up is trying to work out the perfect design. So this time, with a self-imposed deadline of one week after the party, I've gone with the 'just get it done' route and done the first thing I thought of: stamped card with ball motif (to suit the ball-mad birthday boy).
I carved a ball, then a bouncing dotted line, cut out the cards, printed them, wrote individual messages, stamped the envelopes, sealed them and then heard... "mama!". Phew, just made it to the end of nap time.
It sure feels good to have this little task done. Now to deliver them and not let them languish in my bag for the next week!!
Creativity spaces aplenty here.
