PHD UFO US, you name it....

Weeks and weeks ago we had a splurge of discussing Unfinished Objects. Unfinished Symphonies. Projects Half Done. (UFO, US, PHD). Actually it was the WOYWW anniversary that set us all off,  huh. Anyway. I had to confess at the time that I don’t really have such things because, well, I’m a procrastinator. Which basically means that I don't get around to starting a project rather than leaving it half done! Now, here’s another thing about me. I’m very much a ‘one thing at a time’ person when it comes to my hobbies. 
Yesterday I had a face time call with the Coven and because we primarily meet to scrapbook together, I cleared my desk of what I was doing and made a scrapbook page whilst we chatted. 

I lifted this pic of Helen off FB, I love it. There’s not much to the LO in terms of work, but no need when the pictures are so good huh. Also, remember, all the time I’m cutting and sticking, I’m chatting as well. Multi- tasking! Although it doesn’t always pay off - I have to rewrite the little tag, shocking word order in that one sentence!  
So the desk is now covered in scrapbook stuff which knocked the stamping and colouring on the head. So I went back to that today because it turns out I cant bear to leave them unfinished. Not because I’m hugely distressed by the thought of a stack of unfinished stuff, to be honest, but because I don’t want them hanging about in my way for the next however long. Even if I move them from my desk, I have to shoe horn them into my workroom and they’ll be equally in the way! So, whilst chatting on the phone this afternoon, I finished the colouring. 
And now I’m fussy cutting. 
OOh that’s a large pic. It wont reduce! Anyway, after this, these little images are destined to go on cards. I need to get them done because I have a bunch of other things to be done, quite specifically, some cards for a workshop! Going to try and come up with a kit pack. And my brain will not let me move on yet. Crafting is a therapy I know, but do you quietly think I need a bit more therapy? Ah well.

I'm so like you in that respect. I seem to be able to only work on one thing at a time. And I have to clean up as I go, because my craft room is SO small. I absolutely LOVE that photo of Helen. She didn't show it on her blog, but it's a fabulous selfie. You did good, dear Julia.

As for those little fussy cut images, I can only empathize with you.

Helen said...

I remember that photo - my hair still looked fairly respectable at the time ha ha - must have been early in lockdown! I do like what you have done with it though! Well done on the fussy cutting so far. Perhaps you could use them for the kit for the workshop, kill two birds with one stone!

Hi Julia, That is a lovely LO. I wish I could find my mo9jo and get back into scrapping.

Hope you have a lovely day. Sue

Love the layout (so pleased you still meet up with the coven) and fair play for the fussy cutting, will be worth it as those images are brilliant

Mm Julia.. sometimes specialise in UFOs, I susoect... three are left suspended on two separate desks due to current circumstances.
I think that's a prodigiously large amount of fussy cutting of figures.. but you're more a large number of groups of items than I am.
Prayer hugs Shaz in Oz. X

I like the UFOs as it has a mystic around it ;) - I normally work with one project at a time, but sometimes it shows up that there actually were more than one project. I think there is a lot of crafting gnomes around me (as I feel they tease me) to make a mess on my desk. lol. Thanks for being around, Julia

Warm regards

Loved the comment about not starting a project rather than not finishing it!

Neet said...

My oh My, that is one heck of a lot of fussy cutting. Good luck. Love those little ones you have stamped and coloured.
Great LO of Helen too - how on earth did you manage that whilst on the phone?
Hugs, Neet xx
