Procrastination (Mojo 86)

I have a serious problem with procrastination. I have had it my entire life. I try my best to do things in such ways so that I don't procrastinate, but the nasty habit always manages to creep back into my life. And of course there is always the excuses that come along. My excuse right now is I'm tired. Whenever I get a few moments to myself all I feel like doing is sitting. My kids are crazy right now, and they just suck the energy right out of me.

When I started this blog I promised myself I would post at least once a week by doing the mojo sketch, and I knew that if I was going to keep up with the once a week promise I'd have to be on top of the mojo sketch at the beginning of the week. This week, I procrastinated. I almost decided to just forget about it. Thank goodness I also have a strong guilt reflex and I felt guilty about not keeping up with my own self inflicted promise. So yesterday even though I felt like not doing anything other than staring at the grass growing (and yes we just put down a load of seed and laid new sod so I can in fact watch new grass grow if I felt like it) I dragged myself to the basement to make my card.

I'm fairly happy with it. I could not for the life of me get the ink that I chose to use to give me decent coverage on the stamps that I chose to use, but meh whatever. It gives it the antique look (ha, that's what I'm telling myself anyway.

I tried something different with my picture takign since the lighting in my house is horrible. Someday I will take a better picture (how's that for procrastination)

Stamps: Just Like You (SU)

Ink: Cranberry (Colourbox)

Paper: Play (Fancy Pants Designs); Indigo (Canson); some random cheap yellow paper from michaels
