So, in my quest to waste all free time playing with paper (or sugar) I had the “opportunity ” to make my first Sympathy card last night. I only had scraps and left overs, but it has me now on a new mission to create more of these to have on hand. It’s been a rough week, three funerals, and a spat with one of my kids has left me in tears most of the week. Believe it or not, swimming and working out at the gym did not provide the catharsis that I needed. But working with paper did. (Thank you Heartfelt Creations and Spellbinders!) I’m not sure if working with sugar paste will have the same effect, but we will soon find out, as it is a rainy day (which is perfect, as I sit in the Chapel awaiting the third funeral of the week to start) and I intend to go home after this, and make not just a few cards, but several gumpaste flowers as well. I’ve been needing to rebuild my stash anyway.
