A Dragonfly Day
Well today is what I think of as a dragonfly day. I love dragonflies. I think they're beautiful and they definitely play an important role in our ecosystem. Just looking at them makes me feel 'right'. Today being the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter, the stores are open and packed! I ventured out and bought a dust pan and brush, and a broom. All in wild colours. The broom is zebra print. These are for my work room so I don't have to drag out the vacuum after every play session. So I went downstairs with my purchases, swept up and you know what then. Yes, when the craft room is clean I immediately want to sit down and create something. I have this really great sheer ribbon with butterfly outlines on it (a gift from Shelly) and a 3-D dragonfly. I embossed and sanded a bit of card stock for the background and voila. Super easy super quick card. I tell you, making just one little card was all I had to do to be able to return upstairs. I had dragonflies on the brain. Life would be out of balance if I hadn't stopped to do that card. The room is clean again and I'm sitting here waiting for dinner to finish cooking.
I hope everyone is enjoying a lovely family weekend. I'm excited for tomorrow!
