So... ummm... yea... I recently made the mistake of starting on a book series and when that happens I kinda get a bit obsessed with reading at the expense of everything else I may have going on. This is especially bad when the books are awesome too, because it becomes so hard for me to pull myself away from whatever world I've become immersed in. Currently it is The Hunger Games trilogy that I'm a bit obsessed with. I got through the first book in a day and I'm only a third of the way through Catching Fire. I'm really loving this story but I'm trying very hard to be smart about my time management and not neglect everything and just read, read, read. I blame Pinterest and the upcoming movie release for peeking my interest because I always try to read a book before seeing the movie version. That way my vision and take on the characters and the world they inhabit aren't being influenced by Hollywood, which is way more enjoyable for me. Yes, you can add Book Nerd to my ongoing list of nerdy attributes, LOL! ;)
Why am I sharing all of this you may ask? Well, because I was trapped in Panem much of last night, I didn't leave myself a lot of time to make a card. So you know what I did? I flipped through a basket of past cards that either haven't sold or been sent off and found an oldie but a goodie that could use a slight image facelift. When I originally made this card, probably about three years ago, I was still using the not-so-great Georgia Pacific cardstock and the resulting coloring was definitely not up to my current standards. So I salvaged the perfectly good card and printed out a new Wryn from Tiddly Inks to replace the old image. I have to say that I think Wryn looks like she was supposed to be here all along. Quick, easy and nothing had to go to waste... love that!
Alrighty, I do have things I need to do today but no promises that I won't sneak in a couple chapters here and there. ;)
May the odds be ever in your favor my friends!
