Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. We're not quantified; there's no chart of desire. When the roaring flames of your heart have burned down to embers, may you find that you have married your best friend. [Steven Tyler]

Play Time vs Work Time

I have to go work in my little studio today...... must do some prep for the TV shows on Thursday. Problem is, there are so many things I want to do as well.

It's a beautiful bright sunny day, just a little nip in the air but a day that is perfect for getting out and about with my four-legged-friend in the presence of a camera. Nooooo! Too much to do. The nearest we got to it was his early morning constitutional and then when he hopped into the back of the car for a quick trip to Teesside Park - more accurately, Borders Book Shop.
Another project I should be finishing is a friends birthday pressy. Nooooo! It was only her birthday two weeks ago now. I hope she'll forgive me for being late. I might get a chance to finish it over the weekend.
Then there's all the housework! Definitely Nooooo! Far too busy.

These pictures are of a Star Book ATC holder that I've made complete with ATC's.
I really enjoyed making this project as the book signatures are stitched using some traditional bookbinding methods. Note to self: must make another one!
Ok! time to go create. I've managed to procrastinate for long enough, now I must go and try to come up with some fresh ideas for the Victorian Ladies and Accessories stamps that are featuring on the TV on the 8th. I also get to play with the Artylicious papers again as they are on too. This is a big problem for me because every time I print off the papers I come up with so many ideas for how I want to use them that I go off on a tangent and forget what I'm meant to be focusing on.
Must focus......... must focus.......... must focus!
