I love mixing the new with the old...

I have been having so much fun going through boxes and unpacking my craft room as I often get side tracked and then I find myself sitting at my table creating a way...  Yes that is why it has been taking me forever to get it unpacked. What better way to get inspired then to open up a box and find all your treasure that have been packed away for months ok a year, but it's been a rough year for me so I'm glad to be getting back into the swing of things and so glad that I feel human again it only took 2 surgeries but I am on the mend and back to getting crafty in my spare time. It really does feel good to be among paper, ink, glitter and glue...  So today I unpacked some My Minds Eye 6x6 pads and at the bottom of the box was a package of ephemera from K & Company...  things like ephemera inspire me so naturally I headed to the table with a few new things and some old paper pads and the ephemera package and pulled some things from my left over bin and got busy creating...  Here is a card I created.

So glad you are feeling better! Most of my crafty supplies were packed in boxes for a year as well - I know exactly how it feels when you unpack it and rediscover everything. Love your card! :)
