Blue, Blue, my worlds been blue

I wish I could say that I have been crafting so much that I haven't had time to write but it's just not the case.  Other than making my Christmas cards and starting on these beautiful pinecones I saw on Splitcoast Stampers and making a handful of dry snow "globes" and a few cards here and there, I haven't done much.  I haven't even attended my fun and inspiring Stampin Up classes.   I just haven't been motivated. 

I work fulltime and things at work have been very stressful over the last six months.  I don't want this to be a downer post so I won't go into details but it has been making me somewhat blue and I have only been creating when it's been necessary and not for fun.  That sounds so sad!  Ugh!  I need to snap out of it because I have so many beautiful things I've seen that I want to try and so many pieces that I've accumulated that are screaming to be repurposed!

My wonderful husband bought me a tv for my craft room.  I had hoped that my time watching the Denver Broncos weren't being done with my hands not creating.  This left my craft room in total disarray and it took me a long time to get it back to where I even had space to make cards.  I did a bit of de-cluttering and this gave me a little more space but, I have a long way to go.

Okay...enough of the pity party.  

I am still in love with anything Graphic45 and have been very inspired by the papers and by what I've seen on Pinterest and on the G45 website.  I also always love a new challenge and have tried several of the new pop-up and box type of cards. 

So I'll keep this brief, post some photos and pull myself up by my bootstraps!
