Here are the fruits of my labour from my unplugged day. I got off to a late start. I think the thought of not being able to check e-mail with my coffee kept me lingering in bed! I was also sorta disoriented and not sure where to start so I did did faff about a bit. But once I got going things went swimmingly!

A layout for the Overlooked challenge

More cases for Moo cards

Trying out perfect binding ideas. Collage sheets and stamps are all by Alpha Stamps

A gardening apron. This one I started on Friday and finished today. The ticking, collage fabric and ribbons are from Alpha Stamps. I'll try to get a better photo of it outside tomorrow.

Mind you it wasn't easy, I was constantly drawn to the computer, like a magnet. But once the day was over and I did check in I realised it was all worth it since my fears of missing out were not realised! Everything was still there, waiting for me. I'm hoping that this will help me to be more focuded in the weeks ahead. And I am considering making it a weekly thing. One day, unplugged from it all, to focus, create and recharge.

Hi there! Found you via the Sparkle Power Sew Along Group. I just LOVE your Moo card holder! I don't have any moo cards yet, but feel like getting some so I can put them in a cute holder like that :) Great idea! And all your other projects are swell too. Do you have an etsy shop?
