I stay busy. In fact, I thrive on staying busy. You can ask my husband and my friends, and they will tell you I stay too busy. Like most women, I don't get enough sleep or take time for myself. But in the whirlwind of my life, I need my own sense of balance. It may not be what someone else considers balance, but as long as I feel it, I'm okay. Today, things were off balance! First, of all, I have physically not felt well. That started my day off in a bit of a funk. Secondly, Rachel was extra energetic and kept me more on my toes than usual. The clincher for the day was while I was in the bathroom, she unlocked the door leading in to the garage and her "sissy" had left the garage door open when she got her bike. I found my 3-year-old daughter across the street from our home. My heart fell to my stomach! Hubby is adding high locks to the doors tomorrow. While she was taking her nap, I decided to give the Sketch Challenge from SCS a try. Well, I couldn't get that to balance, either. I worked on this one card for the entirety of the nap and then once my husband got home- way too long to spend on 1 card! This is what I finally came up with. The PP in the bottom right corner was overpowering the upper left corner, so I made the little organdy ribbon rosette to place in that area. I could just imagine little rosettes lined-up across the little empire waistline. I'm not overly thrilled with the results but I do feel that there is balance. I think I'll go eat a piece of chocolate cake and just chill! Take care!
