I did not think that there would be time today, to sit at my desk and erm, fiddle about. And I'm fine with that, because I hadn't mentally allocated myself any such time, knowing that real life would have to be a priority. I find it's only when I have to be flexible and understanding and sacrifice my desk time that I get a) great ideas, and b) childish and resentful.
So to my surprise, despite a rather time consuming and stressful start to the morning (not for me, for Mr Dunnit) my day allowed for some fun! See, he needed my signature and I had to find a fax we could use for 3 pages of forms. Well, 7 actually, by the time I'd got back to the car, taken the phone call telling me the form was incorrect, returned to car park, gone back to Shopkeeper Gal for more use of her fax machine and then re-sent the same form twice, got half way back to the car ....you get it. Anyway, that cost him half an hour and then at lunch time we had a meeting with the boys who will be designing our new company logo and website and blahdy blah. And I mean boys - And Mr Dunnit had to be here for that too. He feels as though he's wasted half a day! well, it must have motivated me - I got the chores done, welcomed and cheerioed 'the boys' and settled to the book-keeping. Didn't take nearly as long as I thought.
So I decided not to be at a lazy loose end, but to start on a workshop idea. And then I made the card. It's one layer and off the page, so I think it'll do for the Less is More challenge this week; I'll await the verdict! The bird is from a set of stamps by Kanban and the paints are my lovely and under used H20s. The little text stamp is by Hero Arts. Of course.
