Talk about out of shape (Pictures Post #8)

We're writing out thank yous. I had a ton of extras so we were using those. Well, we're 13 cards short. Great! I get to make some and hubby will take the kids since he's so gung ho on getting these out. So I sat down at my table to plan out things while the younger two were napping... and just sat there.

Hubby bought me a stamp set. Cute stuff... can't for the life of me figure out how to incorporate them into a card. Pulled out some awesome papers... no idea how to arrange them.

So now I'm here with Josiah on my lap copying down pagemaps so I can cheat tonight.

I guess crafting is like exercise... sit too long and you temporarily forget that skill. LOL

I totally know how you're feeling!!!!!!! That's why I love 'lifting. But even when I lift, sometimes it takes me a while to get going.

Good luck!

There have been days when I sat in my scrap room and did nothing. I blame it on the kids I teach :ROFL:... little brain zappers!

Give yourself a break girl, you been busy. I usually step away for a bit and then come back.

I told this to my husband... that I was drawing blanks and had to look up page maps. Well he has no clue what page maps are. He just heard I was drawing blanks. When I fell asleep in the middle of the livingroom floor (something which has NEVER happened before), he decided he'd be nice and help me get the cards done.

He made 8 of them before I woke up. It is so completely sweet of him... even if I was looking forward to HAVING to craft as that seems to be the only time I get around to it.

I did end up designing the card for the last 5 but I didn't get it put together. Got to bed as early as possible last night, but it took close to 2 hours of feeding Josiah before then.

But without further ado... the cards my HUSBAND made. (Oh and I asked him why he chose these colors and he said "What's more manly then browns, and midevil looking stones and tapestries?" Ah my lovely English blooded, undergraduate history major hubby...)

Agreed!!!! I'm not even sure that I would want DH in my scrap room, he might cause an explosion.

How nice of him! I think he did great. My husband would have helped me too, if I had asked, since he scraps digitally sometimes. I think it is great that yours took the initiative though. He rocks!
