Paper Smooches & Get Me Out of Here!

May 13, 2014 at 3:38 pm 11 comments

Is it really only Tuesday? It feels like Friday. This is a quick and easy project for my day over at Make The Day Special. I’m using some new sets – never really tackled Paper Smooches before..most of the project is using this set

Cute hey?!
I’ve added in the flowers from the Kitschy Kitchen set. I was going with the contrast of a bog-standard ordinaire coffee and the super-special cup ( or person) that the steam is flowery and full of rainbow colour!
Know any people like that? I know a few. In fact it’s a privelege to know even one, so I must be really blessed!

If I was to describe to you my household at the moment, you’d break out in a cold sweat.
At a time when I could do to be doing nothing much and just being a support to the studious, I’m playing catch up and just about getting there! I’m on my third set of commissions this week already nevermind the DT work plus copy and invoices to write.
It’s massive fun -particularly being involved with Paper Artsy- their ‘family’ is amazing and super supportive so I’ve loved being a part of such a vibrant community! It has helped being a fun contrast to the other ‘stuff’.
It gets a little concerning when one of your offspring decides to tell you the night before that they’ve exams and you did actually have it in the diary but it hadn’t actually registered. They were insistent that there was no need to revise as the results simply didn’t matter! Ha ha. Yep, I wasn’t born yesterday.
So, there were 3 glum faced girls sharing a table. One wanted music, the other didn’t. One was breathing too loudly. Another was ‘finished’ in record time ( 20 minutes to revise a whole year in one subject?! Amazing!) I scurried in and out. More out than in.
Coffees and teas and juices and the occasional bowl of popcorn.
When the noise got too loud, I went and ‘turned them down’ so to speak.
I meanwhile badgered away in my work space trying to get creativity to flow out of me whilst my body was insisting that sleep would be a preferable option.
We have about 3 more weeks of it!
Wish me luck!!

See you later this evening- with a sneak peek of my final project this week on the Paper Artsy blog. It’s up after 7pm ..oh and if you want to join a party, get on Twitter afterwards- it’s always great fun!

    You are a hoot…your household sounds, very much, like what my daughter’s going through with her kids, job, life. Incidentally, through all that, you managed to make this truly adorable card. See…you CAN do it.
