The house is silent except for a painful, grinding sound that is coming out of my craft room.
A sound someone on the MTC forum had described as the noise a moose-in-heat makes, and it was coming out of my Silhouette SD cutter. It is dark outside and I should be in bed like everyone else and yet here I am cutting paper. My mind drifted to the events of the day...
We had driven to the mountains for a weekend trip to a Bavarian village only to cut short our stay after one night. I had opened the door to go outside in the morning and instead of fresh mountain air, my face was hit by smoke. My heart sank when I found out that there was a wildfire in the woods nearby.
The Silhouette stops and I look at the perfect little circles on the mat. My lips curled into a smile.
Lettering Delights had released their insanely cute Finger Puppet sets on Friday and I was looking forward to cutting them out. Coming home early meant that I could cut these out now instead of next week.
"I need to go to bed soon", I muttered as I absentmindedly position another sheet of cardstock onto the mat and loaded that into the cutter. Hubby is not going to be happy if he finds out that I am still playing.
Screech....screech.....the blade plunged itself into the paper and starts slicing into it.
I look up and see 2:30 registered on the clock.
I need to get these cards finished. I see them in my head and I must get them into my hands. I already KNOW exactly how they will look like......
Half the night is gone and soon there will be light. I am spent but they are finished.
I've done it.
I had cut and glued and I have my "Friends" in my hands. I ran upstairs and jumped into bed. Hubby stirred and I held my breath. He continued sleeping. I closed my eyes and fell asleep grinning...
