SYMPATHY CARD

SYMPATHY CARD

Among the cards that crafters can possibly make, the saddest may be sympathy cards. As for me, I try to resist myself from making one, but as some of my closest friends and the people around me experience loss in their life, I’ve come to understand that the cards or crafts people make contribute to the emotional recovery of the berieved family.

The thought and prayers that crafters have while making these crafts is very much felt in the craft that they create. I`ve come to understand that sometimes even though we what we create may be to bland or plain, the thought behind it is more important. What I learned from this experience is that as a crafter, if would always better to acknowledge every event because in life, whether we like it of not unfortunate events will surely come our way.

 

Tidying up a small part of my work area

Tidying up a small part of my work area

Finally had a day off after weeks of stressful events my workplace has been hosting.  Decided to spend the day catching up some sleep and tidying up my crafts area.

Before:

Look how messy and misplaced the papers and embellishments are……

Embellishments are all over the place

I really have to tame these embellishments that are just on the table.

So I decided to group them together according to design and color and put them in a clear zip locks

I grouped all that I used as layering, I also sorted our some of my die cuts and the cards I use as accent.

Then, I need to put back the paper to it’s proper area in order to clear the space and find new arrangement for my embellishments and other materials.

After some time of sorting and grouping of similar items together…..

Now, everything has it’s proper place and it’s now easier to look for the items I need to use.

The table is also cleared, giving me more space for my next project! Although, the change is not so drastic, it still gives of a better atmosphere for more project creations!
