I'm going to have to get...

...some sort of order in my life. At the moment I take each day as it comes, and that is fine as far as it goes. However, not having any order means that I'm not getting the things done that I want to. I know that I have to pace myself and not try and do everything in one go...but I'm not leaving myself any "me time." I want to be able to do the things I enjoy without feeling guilty that the housework is being too neglected. OK, I don't do housework that I used to...I just can't manage it. What I need to do is devise a flexible plan for the week which will allow me to get the necessary work done and still leave me enough energy to do the gardening (weather permitting) and have a day just for crafting. At the moment I'm having to make things at the last minute.....and that is not will become a chore.
Here are 3 cards that I've made recently. The first 2 are for the Imag-e-nation forum challenges. I didn't win..but then I didn't expect to..the standard is very high.
The first one has the theme of teddies, and as I'd got some free Paddington Bear papers..I went along with that.
The second one was for a theme of black and white. The stamp is from Dimension Fourth and the spotty paper from Jak's blog.

This last one is the card I made for my youngest son's birthday, which is today. My baby is 20 now. The paper and image are a free download from Peejay. It didn't turn out quite as planned. The wheels on the car are gold on the download...but my printer decided that yesterday was a very good time to run out of yellow. So I made it a blue and silver rather than blue and gold.
My signature is back....but I think that I've accidentally deleted it from this post....dohhh!!

I so know what you mean about getting some order into your life. I'm feeling the same right now but not really able to do much until things settle more. Wanted to say what a good job you do in difficult circumstances.
Love the cards as well. Hope you don't mind but I've snagged one of your piccies of the card made from my sheet and put it on the slideshow on my blog. If you don't like I can take it off - just let me know....
