I am getting a little antsy lately, twisting my fingers into knots, wondering what the day holds. I live minute to minute - little scraps of paper lying around dictating errands and chores and meetings for the day. There's a plan after coffee, after the gym (if I squeeze it in), places to be, people to see. I crave structure in my life. So unemployment is really hard. Because there is no schedule, and minutes don't matter. There are things though - a list I tucked away in the depths of my journal - that I wanted to do when I had some "down time." Of course, "down time" gives me hives, but this little project was incredibly simple and kept me busy for...oh, a good thirty minutes.
All you need is a scrapbook punch (about $9.99) and paint samples (free) from Home Depot or wherever. Don't mind the looks people give you as you hoard forty paint samples out of the store. Promise yourself to buy something from Home Depot when you have extra money, and move on. Heat up a frozen pizza, turn up some Aretha Franklin, and make this super-simple craft.
