Today, I crafted.

I craft.  I craft a lot.  As a matter of fact, I spend the majority of my free time doing something crafty.  However, rarely do I craft without a purpose.  I have lists upon lists of things I want to make tutorial videos of, things I need to do for a gift or someone special.  I have projects to make that I’ve pinned on Pinterest or from some other youtuber.

Today, I sat in my craftroom and thought… I want to make something.  I have no idea what.  I toyed with sewing, scrapbooking or making a card.  When I couldn’t decide I just pulled out some papers, and then some embellishments, but I still had no idea what I was going to make.  And then it happened.  One thing led to another and before I knew it, I had created a Memory Dex Card.

Dex 2017 (1 of 1)

It’s certainly not the first Memory Dex card I’ve ever made (I’ve made hundreds).  It’s not the best project I ever made, but this little card made something “click” inside of me.  This little card represented a little slice of heaven.  It brought me back to the simplicity of just doing what I love.  I didn’t hear the phone, I didn’t even have a tv, music or any noise on in the background.  When I was finished, I looked at my little creation and without realizing what I had done… I noted the “be true to who you are”.  It simply summed up exactly what I was feeling.  Today, I crafted.  I crafted… just because.  And I loved it.

    Hi there! I love this! I literally made my first memory dex type card. However, I stumbled across your old video and would love to get the file you created for Cricut. I tried the link, but need a password. Thanks and you’re really amazingly talented. Thank you for the inspiration.
