I tell you I am going positively CRA-ZEE. No one should be subjected to the fiasco that is the moving process! Today was supposed to be our moving day, but that has been postponed. The recent past for us has been nothing but trauma after trauma.

And I NEED some Creative Therapy. Badly.

My November Paper Pumpkin kit arrived the other day. After hastily opening the darling red box, I discovered, to my immense delight, that there are such wonderful components to this kit, and I am so excited to get started on it.

I mean, really, look at these scrumptious stamps!

I was so enthused about this kit when I first unpacked it. The directions that came for the projects are adorable. But, after I spread out all the components, I became inspired to not only make up some of the projects as instructed, but to change it up a bit to make some of the projects my very own! Yayyy!

Uh oh. Reality hits. My acrylic blocks are packed away, languishing inside some dark and dreary moving box. Hardly able to breathe what with all the nasty tape blocking the air. 

So, I was so desperate to get going on this kit that last night I untaped and dug through a few boxes marked "SU" just trying to rescue those little buggers. Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful in my search and was also making more of a mess than I needed at this point. So I reluctantly gave up.

As they say, desperation makes us do crazy things. Yup. Today when we run into town to sign some papers at the bank, I am going to stop at a craft store and buy one <non-SU> acrylic block. Maybe being able to tackle this darling kit will make me feel better?

Does being creative help you get through the tough times in your life?



  1. I know what you mean. I've been here over a year and some of my SU stuff is still in boxes. Haven't had the urge to be creative lately.

  2. I know what you mean. :) We all go through this!
