Thanks… BIG Time!

It literally took me four hours to come up with placement of these left over silver buttons from one of My Paper Pumpkin kits.  I wanted to use Real Red card stock, but just couldn’t fit it into the silver.  I know right?  You’re thinking, “WHAT!?  Four hours?”

Sometimes, creativity just takes a little while… LoL.  Especially with me… someone actually said to me, “you make it look so easy.”  I should have camcorders set up so y’all can follow the pain of my hobby.  Not a pain, think of it as giving childbirth… OTFL.

But this is the exact reason why I choose to face my fears.  It’s easy to follow a drawn  sketch, but much more difficult for me to come up with a sketch of my own.  I have to admit, the creative process has therapeutic value.

I like to call it HE/ART THERAPY.  It cures the heart of any sadness, depression, or trauma in your life.  There are even Master’s degree courses and I found an awesome job description here.

Aren’t the buttons just lovely.  I didn’t want to use them all up when I discovered them as part of My Paper Pumpkin subscription a few months ago.  So, I held on to two sets for use in a future project and the future arrived today… LoL.
