A Productive Sunday

Last Sunday I had the house to myself. That is rare these days. It seems like someone is always here. Now don't get me wrong. I love each and every one of them. But, I do like my alone time. With all that free time I could have and should have spent it doing laundry and housework,but nope I played. Good for Me. I love Rebecca Sower's work. Her work was the inspiration for the little dress on a canvas.
Since I was home. I told myself I wasn't going to go anywhere. So often I will start something and think,oh that would look good if I had this color paper or marker. Then I find myself running to Michale's to see if they have what I want. Invariably I end up picking up something else and never getting what I really wanted. I end up with lots of stuff that I don't really know what I'm going to do with. Sound familiar? I made myself just use what I had. Just some random tags and little goodies. No real plan on what I was doing.






I remembered it was my not so favorite sister-in-law's birthday. I usually wouldn't make her anything. 1,she never appreciate anything and 2 (I'm not ashamed to say) I don't like her. Oh don't get me started. But I always play the game and send her a card. Not having a store bought one,and remember I wasn't leaving the house. I thought I will be nice and make her one. I know I will never hear whether she like it or not. After 25 years in this family I really don't care. All in all I had a great day to myself. Of course it has taken me till today Wednesday to post this. And guess what? I still don't have the laundry done. Good thing there is always tomorrow.

Your dress cards and tags are adorable! Nice to have some quiet crafting time! We live out in the country so I CAN'T go out whenever I need things, everything I make is from "use what I have" supplies! LOL

PS Thanks for putting your name in my BOO giveaway!
