In a Mood

Posted by Carol Anne on February 3, 2017 in Miscellaneous, Scrapbooking |

I’ve been in a mood to complete crafty projects since the election.  I think this is my therapy to deal with the outcome and fall out.  I feel productive.

The first thing I finished was crocheting Sarah’s Mankato school colors scarf.  Well, let me restate that:  I finished the body of the scarf early in January.  Just tonight I put the fringe on the scarf and it is officially finished.  I also finished two dishcloths Sarah can take with her when she leaves for college in August.  You need something to clean out coffee mugs.

I also actually did AND finished a December Daily album — by the 15th of January.  After my 10 year, drawn out Journal Your Christmas album finale last year, I am proud that I started something and actually completed it within a month.

The next thing I want to finish is the scrapbook album from our China trip in 2012.  It’s half done.  I have all the paper.  I just need to print pictures and do the layouts.  But it’s a real mental block for me.  Not because it was a bad trip — far from it.  I think it’s just that it is such a large project.  It’s 1 1/2 albums right now, and will probably wind up being three albums.  I need to break this into baby steps; probably the first step would be printing pictures!

I am in a mood — a mood to complete things.  Since this is “Finish It February”, I’m really going to do it.  China Trip album, I’m looking at you.
