Or go after it with scissors, shredder and glue.
That was me yesterday when it came time to write what is my 100th post. I had ideas, a few pages of notes and pictures, but I think I psyched myself out over the idea that I needed some kind of sparkly masterpiece.
Worse I knew that without a solid plan, I would be spending hours working on a post that I wasn’t even sure would turn out the way I intended.
So I scrapped it all and decided to work on a craft project.
I have a few bulletin boards that I wanted to change in order to use them for inspirational story boards (as much as I LOVE Pinterest, I can’t be online while I’m writing).
So I started with this:
Then I picked out some paper.
I used leftover scrapbook paper, books with torn pages and a couple of greeting cards. I decided on a neutral color scheme and picked pages that were black, white or gray.
Then it was time to cut the paper into strips. I have a Scrapbook paper-cutter, but suddenly I had a light bulb moment.
Well, a light bulb on its last filament moment, because I tried my office paper shredder, thinking I would have a pile of strips ready to lay on the cork board.
I forget about the whole cross shredder thing.
Can you find Waldo in there?
(And this is the same brain I was planning on using to write my 100th post masterpiece.)
Anyway, I cut the paper into strips and then glued them down.
Until I ended up with this, the finished project:
All ready for tacking on inspiring things–I started with a heart.
Do you like to play with scissors and glue? What are your creative outlets?
I love it when you comment!
Have a GREAT week.
