What's your routine? Plus a Grammy's Love - Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida
How do you handle a disruption in your routine? I've always been a creature of habit - fairly comfortable with knowing what I would be doing each evening after work.....each weekend. So having some free time off while I'm job-searching changed things up.
Last week, for example, I had a surge of mojo and created some art nearly every day. Then this weekend I had a dog-sitting job (my first) with a wonderful little guy named Corky. I stayed at Corky's house and didn't take any craft supplies with me (can you believe it???). Then Alan has been home from college for a couple of days, and we fell into our Alan-home-from-college-routine of sitting together with our computers, watching our taped shows that I save for these days and eating takeout. Watching typical guy shows, but they really are pretty good - Deadliest Catch, Whale Wars, Swords and a new one - Scrappers. So all of my chick shows have stacked up in a tidy row waiting for Alan to leave.
So now he's home at his other home in Gainesville, and I'll be back to the studio tomorrow - yippee! And back to looking for a job, trying to find affordable health insurance...you get the idea.
Here's one of my Spellbinders(TM) layouts that you can find in the Spellbinders' blog gallery. This is my mom (isn't she cute!) and my baby's first college graduation from BCC. I used some lace that my mom gave me from her old scraps, as well as sheet music she gave me (for the fan and the flowers). Click on the image to enlarge it. These are my two most favorite people in the world!
So how do you handle a routine disruption? Do you still manage to slip in a little craftiness, or do you dive completely into the disruption and start anew when things settle down?
