Friendship and Crafting.....

Yesterday I was in a bit of a funk! Right now I am juggling creative stuff for 3 events. A little stressful but I can manage the busy work. My problem was trying to come up with the right design for one of the favors I am working on. I just couldn't seem to make it come together. Ended up with a big mess of paper and cut outs on the kitchen counter and no real inspiration.

I plopped down in my chair and pulled up Facebook to take a little break and re-group. My card making buddie, Janelle, happened to be on at the time and we started chatting about the project. Her comment to me was "let's talk it through". So we did. Our talking led to her designing a piece of the project. (She is a wiz on Photoshop!) Once that piece was done, the project came together in a hurry! I headed out to Michaels to purchase the supplies and had all the parts all cut out by the end of the evening (A lot of cutting.....200 for this event!)

I was re-energized with the help of a friend! SO, I just wanted to say THANK-YOU Janelle! You really Sparked a Smile today!

(And here's the final product!)
