I was bored out of my mind today. We’re talking pacing the house, climbing the walls, ready to pull my hair out bored. BORED.
It was cold and a little rainy and I would have happily fired up the leaf blower just for something to do outside but alas, the weather had no intention of serving my whims.
I dabbled with a few unfinished projects, then decided to make a thank-you card. I get the same feeling when I try to start a card as I do when I have writer’s block – I have no idea where to start, I don’t know what I want to create, literally everyone who has ever done this is so much better than I am that I shouldn’t even bother.
As with writer’s block, sometimes to best way over it is through. So, I flipped through my favorite paper stack (I’m a long time paper junkie and hoarder) until something sparked a little inspiration. I ended up with this.
It’s not perfect – the composition leaves something to be desired and the workmanship isn’t the best – but it looks like something I would make, and for an hour or so, I wasn’t bored.
