Got My Eye on the New Year
One of them directly affects my crafting--I am working very hard at becoming and remaining organized.
Which brings me to my card today showcasing a couple of Queen Kat Designs stamped images. I stamped Eye Chart directly onto a leftover piece of patterned paper from the Once Upon a Time DCWV Stack, then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Glimmer Mist to distress the heck out of it. Then I embossed Citrus stamped image.
And the fun began! A gold frame runs across a line of the eye chart. Some gold wire swirls across the card face, with a dark purple feather stuck in there. Then I added a couple metal stars for that ultra-dreamy effect.
So how am I attempting to become and stay organized?
I have an organizer in which I have put due dates for the projects for the companies/groups I design for.
I have ruthlessly cleaned out my craft room, and have put things in storage containers where (hopefully) they will be returned as I complete each project.
I have made lists of the new techniques I want to try and which product I want to showcase on them.
I am letting go of some of my cards and projects and sending them off to new homes.
Like I said, small steps, but it's a start!
So, how is your new year starting out? Whatever your plans, keep crafting!
