I had an AH-HA! moment this morning. It happened while I was sitting at the breakfast table, listening to my youngest child chit chat with her sister who was at home, thanks to a fever. My brilliant idea had nothing to do with whatever they were talking about. It is a strange kind of wonderful when the bulb inside the still sleeping head lit up for no reason at all.
"I KNOW what I am going to do!"
I think I might have startled the kids a little when I yelled. They stopped chatting, looked up at me, and then promptly continued trading stories of their adventures in the land of School as though my outburst never happened. I was a bit disappointed at their lack of interest but a part of me was secretly relieved because their disinterest only meant that they wouldn't be hovering around me as I whip up my magic in the craft room.
Except that my magic didn't quite happen as easily as I thought it would today.
I made the mistake of trying a feature on Make-the-Cut that I have never tried before, without first reading up on the tool. An unfortunate miscalculation led me to squander whatever crafting time I had. By the time I had actually completed what I had set out to do, the sun had set and the kids have gone to bed. No one but me left to admire my project. *sniff*
Now, before you think I am going to leave you with nothing to look at today, let me offer you this:
Now, don't you turn your nose up at that because what you are looking at, my friend, is my ah-ah! moment, my Eureka!, my moment of brilliance that made my kids so speechless that all they could muster was a loud chuckle and an amused "Ma-mie!!".
"So what the heck is that?", you say. Well,why don't YOU tell me what YOU think that is? Leave a comment below and tell me what I had made. What do YOU think is the finished project after I have put those pieces together?
I will pick a random winner to win a $10 Lettering Delights gift certificate. The correct answer will not result in a higher chance of winning so please feel free to guess freely. You can make more than one guess but no more than 3 guesses per person please.
The winner will be announced when I reveal my kiddie project on Friday.
Good luck! :-)
p.s. If you don't want to guess, you can still play along. Just say "I have no clue but I still want to win the gc!" to put in your entry. ;-)
