Have you ever had a period of time where you've gone through a creative dry spell?  Or, time gets away from you and although you really want to make something, it doesn't get done?  Do you sometimes have a tendency to loose balance in your life?

Well, that is where I'm at in my life today!  I had plans to complete a couple of cards and work on a few projects today but I really didn't accomplish much.  Then I have all these thoughts going through my head as I contemplate getting our taxes done which a small part of me is dreading because I have so much stuff that needs to be done before we can meet with our CPA. 

So, anyway, today I spent several hours visiting with a new neighbor.  She moved into the house next to ours back in mid-December.  We are both Stay-At-Home-Moms and really seem to have hit it off.  I really enjoy visiting with Melissa.  One of my goals for this year is to find a little more all around balance in my life which includes spending time with my family, friends, exercising and crafting.  I'm still trying to figure out how that is going to look in my life and I have a feeling that Melissa is going to play a big part in helping me find that balance.  Thankfully, she also loves to craft.

In alignment with my goal to create more balance in my life I think I need to also include getting a little more organized with both my personal, business and crafty side of things.  I need to set aside time for my personal life, specific time for my Stampin' Up! business and set times for getting "crafty" with my desire to be creative!

Tomorrow, somehow and someway, I'll be posting a card or project that I've created!!!  I do need to make a "Thinking of You" card for our family dentist that was just diagnoses with Breast Cancer and my brother needs a Belated Happy Birthday card!  Now that I think about it, I totally MISSED Groundhog's Day!

Sunny Stampin’ & Scrappin’!
