I haven't been feeling well so I've spent a lot of time resting this weekend. For me, sleep isn't always as restful as creating, and with the end of the school year fast approaching (only six and a half more school days til summer!!), I have several projects to work on. Can you guess where my thoughts have been?
It's actually been a nice distraction from the realities of my life at the moment, and I think that's why I've been more hyper-focused the past few days. Not only have I finished a few gifts for friends, I've been thinking about imposing structure onto the chaos of my life through this blog. Which means I have some ideas about what to write about and when, which of course will also provide ideas for projects, give me more writing practice, and generally make the world a more happy place for everyone who reads the posts!
First of all, I would like to start working on a "technique of the week" series, in which I choose one technique and create 4-6 projects to write about that week. (Well, I should say 4 or 6 since I don't like odd numbers). Not only will this give me a good reason to experiment, it will also give me a chance to share some (possibly) new and interesting techniques with my readers. If you have suggestions of something you'd like to know more about, leave a comment and I'll explore it with you!
The first technique I would like to explore is heat embossing. I used it on my ATCs for the Paper Pals ATC Trade Club last week, and have since done some exploring online.
I would also like these to be alliterative - Mixed Media Monday, Technique Tuesday (different from the Technique of the Week), and What to Do Wednesday are the three I have so far. I will be posting both cards on Wednesdays now, instead of waiting until Saturday for the second one. I still need words for Sunday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday - feel free to offer ideas by leaving a comment or e-mailing me! Of course that means I don't have an idea for today yet. Hopefully I will by next Sunday - something related to creating and/or writing that starts with an "S".... for now I'm going to rest some more. Happy crafting!
