I NEED to be creative. Sometimes my creativity involves writing, cooking, re-arranging my furniture, or attempting a crafty project by gluing something with Mod Podge. My “artsy” projects are always a little iffy. I try to follow the directions and end up making short cuts which results in a “Well, I tried” attitude.
Last year I found a project that was so me and I “made” a journal. It looks pretty cute but the thing won’t lay flat so instead of using it as a journal, I just record all of my passwords in it. “Well, I tried.”
In December I thought I would get a jump start on a planner for 2011. So, where did I go? Walgreens! Actually I was already there doing a Register Reward deal and saw cheap day planners (but just the layout I like) for $2.
I got it with the idea of Mod Podgeing scrapbook paper on the front and back covers to “personalize” it.
|Kind of a “patchwork” design because I failed “cutting” in kindergarten. I really did.|
Problem is, I accidentally Mod Podged some of the pages to the covers and now they are stuck.
|When I tried to “unstick” this page, it tore.|
The good news is they were those pesky “personal information” pages and I already know all of that about me, so whatever…
Hey, I tried.
