Apparently creating a mini-kit for the Ms. Pacman challenge is exactly what I needed to supercharge my mojo and lose all self-control. It's crazy. Once I compiled the kit yesterday, I couldn't stop staring at it. So I chose a photo to go with it, thinking I'd get to the layout itself over the weekend. Done. Time to do other stuff. Non-scrappy stuff.
Then, while I was trying to be self-disciplined by acknowledging that I did indeed have stuff to do, I just kept sneaking peeks at the kit, sitting on the desk next to me.
So I grabbed a few of the scraps and just played a little mix and match. I gave myself five minutes. Just five. After all, I had stuff to do.
A half an hour later, I was totally absorbed in creating a layout. The time flew by, and I think this had everything to do with the fact that there was no searching involved. Everything I needed was right next to me, ready to go.
Two cards to go!
