Crafting while in pain can go either way. It can be the absorbing love-craft that takes your mind off the misery or it can just be an additional layer of frustration. Sadly, last night everything was just. so. difficult! The sketch was very simple and I thought I had more than enough bandwidth for it. An hour later the table was covered in bits and pieces. I salvaged the best of them and ended up with two cards - SCORE. There's nothing that wrong with them but I know I can do better.
Speaking of... Did you now one of the best tips I've heard on simplifying that I've employed for years is that you don't always need to do your very best. Huh? Yes, that goes against the grain for how most of us have been raised or how we conduct ourselves as adults. But there are times when your best isn't appropriate.
* Your kids won't die if you occasionally have pancakes for dinner. It doesn't always need to be Beef Burgundy.
* Non-crafty people won't notice if you don't ink all your edges, sew your seams etc. You'll make their birthday or christmas cards in half the time.
*The sink can wait, play a board game. The inverse is true too. You don't need to be #1 playmate for your kids 24/7. They can amuse themselves while you go and clean the bathroom.
