Was I bored??

This is the question I get most asked about my time in isolation. Well this is how I spent my days and how I managed to make 170 cards:

I get up & go for a walk on the beach, have breakfast, shower, change, do dishes and then start making cards (after photographing the day before's). This is where I worked and how I had things sorted:



Now what you can't see is all the paper & embellishments that I had laid out on the spare bed in the next room and te stamping station I had on the kitchen bench. That meant that I would have to keep getting up to add bits & pieces to each card, so I didn't sit all day long....method in my madness.

I then had lunch outside (fresh air & sunshine) and continue on with the cards until I had a break mid afternoon, where I would watch a tv show- I managed to watch seasons 6 & part of 7 of Psych and seasons 1 & 2 of Rizzoli & Isles. Continue on with more cards, then pack away for the night.

I would then make dinner and settle down to watch a movie - Bridget Jones-The edge of reason, Wimbledon, Notting Hill, Love Actually, Pride & Prejudice (Matthew Macfayden version),The Notebook, Dear John, Sherlock Holmes-Game of Shadows, The Back Up Plan,Leap Year, 50 First Dates and Death at a Funeral. Some of these (for those of you who pay attention to such things, may notice) I watched either last time or the time before in isolation, but you can't beat a good chick flick (or even a bad one).

Then off to bed and go through the whole thing again the next day....so in answer to the question: No I wasn't bored, I just kept busy and tried to make the time go as fast as possible.

It's a girl

I'm not sure why I made so many baby girl cards, but they are cute:
