"Art is Therapy"
I really believe that for me crafting and creating is therapeutic but I became so stressed before christmas and felt so guilty about my scrapbooking interfering with family life that I nearly had a breakdown!
It no longer felt like therapy or fun
Last year I struggled to come up with fresh photos to scrap because I felt so disappointed in them and it felt as if I didn't have the time to go out and take new ones. This year my photography has hopefully improved following a quick course at my local childrens centre and now I have plenty of photos itching to be scrapped.
Sometimes you just have to stop and smell the roses!
So after a very long break I was coerced into stamping 80 bags for my local church. The bug was back......... but not my confidence.
However this week I had a go at making a chalkboard from an old wooden jigsaw. I was worried that I had lost my style and wouldn't be able to pull it off, especially as I was using plastic leaves and not Prima products...lol!!
I hope the lovely Lucie likes it and at least at 5 years old she isn't old enough to be a critic.......ah the simple life aye......back when everything was pink and girlie.
Sometimes a bit of escapism and fantasy does you good and sometimes therapy really does work.
Love and being 5 forever........
