This is my second day off with a cold. Thank goodness it’s not the flu, but I still don’t want to spread my germs around. So when I’m home all day of course I’m all over the scrappy websites and get all kinds of inspiration but I have no energy to scrap. So last night I got a burst of energy after supper and decided to just cut some ATC blanks (just plain cardstock). My trimmer was already out so I just picked out 2 random pieces of cardstock and decided to chop it all up into ATC cards so the next time i had energy to scrap, it would be there. When I was done that I sat down and watched the new gerbils for a bit.
But I still had some energy, so I got my cuttle bug bag and took it to the kitchen counter (so I could monitor the cats around the gerbils) and took another piece of cardstock and made a bunch of topnote shapes (all one size) from my Nestabilities Note 1 dies. I had some prestamped images on transparency paper from another time, so after I finished with the nestabilities (it only took about 5 minutes to cut and emboss the whole 12X12 cardstock), I grabbed those transparencies, some markers, stickles, and headed for the couch. My energy was fading after a whopping 15 minutes of standing.
I sat there and while watching TV (and occasionally shooing the cat) I managed to colour and stickle 8 of those prestamped images! It might sound obvious that you can do things like colouring and stickling while watching TV, but I had never even thought about taking my scrappy supplies out of their home in the dining room. Duh?!
But the really cool thing is that when I looked at the topnote shapes (which I doodled while sitting on the couch too), the ATC blanks, and the stamped images, they all coordinated and were the right size for one another. So now all I have to do is glue them all together and I have another batch of ATCs!
Gotta love accidental scrapping!
