Sharing a few Blooming Beautiful

It's been a super long week and the inspection is over. My body feels like I have been hit by a truck. Did you ever have a really stressful week and then you got sick. I can feel it coming, it starts with a chest cold, by Monday, I will probably be laid up in bed. (thats assuming I dont spend the whole weekend there to begin with) My body always has a way of making me slow down whether I want to or not.

Amazingly enough, when I sat down to stamp and blow off some steam, I had no mojo. How does that happen, when I really need to create more than ever!

Thank goodness for splitcoast, you can just pick a stamp set and look at all the beautiful creations that others have made. Usually, I only need to case one or two to get started, then the creativity starts flowing.

I picked this stamp set today because I really needed something pretty. Stress is so ugly and takes such a tole on the body and mind. I find flowers to be beautiful and I have never used this set before, So I just jumped in and decided to give it a whirl.
I loved putting the greens and purples together with the craft. Ah, it feels so much better to have stamped. I used to scrapbook to be creative. My life has not been scrapbook worthy lately. I feel like I can only create sad pages, which of course, would do nothing for my mood, so I decided to to stamp some flowers, to make me feel better......

I hope that I havent lost all of my blog readers this past week, while I have neglected my blog. Might have to work extra hard to get people back to see me ;)

What do you do when you are sad? What makes you feel better? How do you make yourself feel better after being stressed for a while? Does stampin help you too? what do you like to stamp when you are sad, or recoving from a stressful week?
