I've been having a lot of technical difficulties with my crafting over the past couple of days.
Computer fritzing? No. Tools failing? No. Materials inferior? No.
I am having ONE OF THOSE DAYS. Well, three days really. So much so I am ready to scream in frustration!
It all began on Wednesday night when I started working on a Halloween wreath. After spending quite some time winding ribbon around my wreath, I discovered that I had left gaps way back about 1/3 of the way around .... so had to unravel everything and begin again. Same thing happened again! OK, I decided, I was probably tired and it was time to hit the sack. Step away from the wreath!
On Thursday morning I decided that, even though it is my "week off" making a Color Me Beautiful design team card, I would give it a go as I like the colours and had an idea in my head. I sat and worked on it for a couple of hours before I had to go off to work but wasn't terribly happy with the result. I was leaving some crystal effects to dry, so would take another look later when I got home.
Nope, didn't do it for me later either. Tried something else. Another no-go. Hmmm, leave it till tomorrow.
This morning I have re-worked my card, spending ages fiddling with my stamp-a-ma-jig to line things up just right. Darn it! Still not satisfied - it needed something to make it pop. Try a different background colour. Oh, botheration! OK, abandon that design and think up something fresh - RATS! another disaster!
NOT HAPPY JAN!
So I have completely given up a challenge card and will go off to look at bathroom tiles instead - maybe my crafting stuff just needs to be ignored for a while and it might miss me and behave when I return? Hey, it's a theory!
