I'm really doing it!


You know how I often talk about pushing a deadline? I admit it, I do.  But I don't do it to the point of absurdity; I can't live on the edge of my seat, it's too much for me! Here's a peek at one of the cards I've made for the Card Marathon next month.  It makes me feel important, posting a peek.  All DT-ish and secretive! I wouldn't usually - I just wait till after the event..after all, there's not a lot of point in a portion.  Well there is, in loads of other parts of our lives, I realise.  Like food.  A portion of food indicates that you have a control over yourself and that you recognise your needs and are a grown up about certain foods.  Note the use of the subject there: you.  Not I. Digression, sorry.  
Anyway, in my case,  a sneak peek/portion of a card serves only to remind me that I still have erm, a few cards to come up with -  and also may reassure Scrap Lady ally that my half of the job is more a work in progress than just being talked about.  Sure it is.  I'm typing, not talking.

Looks good so far. I have just had a real giggle, reading about what you did to your computer geek in August, Absolutely brilliant. Just shows we crafters are not just clever at crafting but we could beat the computer geeks at some things. I had a problem with my BluRay viewing software on the computer and spent over a month in discussion with the "experts" who told me to do this, that and the other, including turning off my virus checker (no, no, no). Nothing worked until I decided to uninstall the lot and started again from scratch. It worked. I rest my case. Us mere women crafters can do computers too.

My ex always accused me of talking about it more than I did it. Craft that is.

Funny thing, he was right.

Here's to typing about it more often!






Nice card, by the way. Even if it is a v important "sneak peek"...

I always love sneak peeks and you gave more away than you realize, or at least I think you did because of all the pop dots I see in the background. My favorite color, too.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I don't normally ask people to visit my blog, but I thought this post was SO important, after one you left a few weeks (or months) ago. I hope you will at least check it out, since it was your blog post that instigated my inquiry and investigation.
