Something's brewing

Something's been brewing alright! My creativity, so to speak. I've been working on my design team projects & finished 2 so far & I've also been working on a 2 page spread that isn't for the design team. I know, I'm supposed to be getting caught up & working on things for my craft show, but when inspiration hits, you can't put it on the back burner! It will never get done then. I'm coming to the realization that I'm just an ADD sort of person & I have several projects (not just scrapping) going on all at once & it seems like a huge accomplishment when one finally gets finished!

I finally completed the 2 page spread in memory of my in-laws that was supposed to be turned in 2 meetings ago, but it was a hard one for me. I never met my father-in-law & only knew my mother-in-law for 2 years before she passed, which was 2 days after 9/11.

Then, I finished my Family Memories photo CD/case this morning. The challenge presented to us on the Memory Zone design team was to use only old products still left in the store, with maybe a hint of some new stuff. We're also supposed to be working on projects that can be made for gift giving at Christmas time or birthdays, or whatever. I chose to make a year in review family photo CD because it's pretty verstile & I didn't want to make it Christmasy, so I used some Making Memories paper that still had a whole stack left. I wouldn't say it's anything exceptional, but it's definitely an attention grabber & I even added some elements of surprise to it. You'll just have to check back to the Design Team Gallery at the Memory Zone later to see.

My next project is supposed to be doing a page that humorously depicts an object in my everyday life. I knew the object that I wanted to do the page about, but I got my real inspiration for it from my fellow DT sistah, Kelly Crowl. With her permission, I came up with a cute idea & now I just need to dwell on it more for the best design. I better take some pictures, but that might have to be on another day.

I have a few more projects up my sleeve, but I'm beginning to think I'm over booking myself. Perhaps I should step away from the computer. I might get more done....

On that note, I think I'll go start on my next project!

P.S. I want to thank Rose for her kind words about my blog header! BTW, you might be seeing more of those pictures in the future!

God Bless and have a great day!
