I survived a week without sewing

Okay, maybe it wasn't a full week, but it was 5 days. Monday through Friday.  I decided to take a self imposed break from quilting because I was becoming fixated on when I could find time to do it. Plus I had a large stack of photos that really needed my attention.

It wound up being a very productive week. I got a dozen scrapbook pages done, 3 cards and put away a lot of photos in albums.

I won't lie though. I did do some quilt planning. And some pinning in the evenings while hubby flipped channels. I also did some sewing on my scrapbook pages.

Here's a close up so you can see what I'm talking about.

I tried to keep most of my pages super simple.
And I made sure to use up lots of scraps and did absolutely no new shopping.   I tried to use my Silhouette a little more since it's been abandoned for quilting. I think I managed to use it on every layout. I also used the sketch pens a little. This one was fun. I made the little journaling block with the pens (this is the 2nd page of a 2 pager).

It was fun to work with paper again and definitely a relief to organize most of my photos. But I've already hopped on the sewing machine. In honor of taking the process pledge I'll blog about what's in progress tomorrow!
