What do you do when you are bored?


What do you do when you are bored? Well.. I love making pretty simple things when I am bored like be it a simple stamped pattern, be it a simple doodle or just anything simple! I really enjoy myself being simple. 


Last few days was really gloomy and I really don't have any energy or mojo to do anything creative. We were in grief and was very sad because of the demise of my dad. It's been a year already and I still feel that the incident happened yesterday. I badly badly miss him. Things were alright when he was here :(


Going to cemetery, visiting my dad's grave and his first memorial service all pushed me into great grief and that grief lead me to a kind of depression and that depression lead me to boredom and lack of energy. I do not know how to explain but those who faced and went through all this will definitely understand my situation.


To kill that boredom and get back to my daily routine, I started making cards with simple designs! And also I doodled a little, I will show you the full project in the next post. 



I started by stamping the pattern on white card stocks in Sweet Sixteen and Pixie Dust Inks and Tiara and Tiki Torch Inks. For creating the pattern I used Circle and Floral stamps from The Perfect Reason Stamp Set and sentiment is from You Did It stamp set.


I stapled the sentiment strips for some interest and embellished the cards with sequins. I hope you like the cards, please do not hesitate to do simple things once in a while or when you are bored like me. Making simple things is the best medicine for depression. Keep doing! Good Luck <3
