I have run out of paitience!

My paitience has got up and run away on me. It is totally gone now and I can't find it anywhere. I have tried to sit and scrap, I have tried to do just about everything but I find I don't have the paitience to sit and do anything for anymore than a few minutes at a time. I really have no interest in doing anything. This is sad sad sad. Tomorrow if things don't perk up a bit I shall have no choice but to call in the big guns (my physchiatrist) and get some more help. Oh gosh if he puts me on more meds I will need help taking them all for sure. I just lately had to get a larger container for doling out all my medications for day to day (if I don't do it that way I forget to take them or worse forget if I have taken them and end up doubling up).

Tara just posted a lovely wall hanging on her blog and that managed to keep my attention for a whole two hours... way to go Tara, you did what nothing else has been able to do for over a week. LOL I really liked the way it turned out and I made a lovely little heritage hanging for my bedroom from a handful of photos I didn't know what to do with. I might even do a couple of these for Janet, she could use some hangings. :)
Here is a pic of what I did.

Oh my gosh, I can't believe that I just spent well over 3 hours working on one layout. I now having it hanging proudly on my wall in the upstairs hall. I did it for Week 5 Task 1. Kat is getting really demanding in the tasks during the last half of the apprentice. For this particular task she wanted quilting. At least 8 different pieces of paper, and sewing. So I decided to give her what she asked for LOL. I found a very old photo of my mom. It was black and white and not in the best of condition. Never the less, considering the fact that there are very few photos of her hanging around I still want to preserve it, so this was the very one to use. I choose to use a quilt pattern called "In The Bloom" to display this photo and I picked out some vintage looking papers from my stash to go along with the "old" look.
I also used a nice piece of satin ribbon to give it a dash of colour. Here is what I came up with. I am so glad that I picked up a bunch of these scrapbooker frames when I had the chance. There is nothing to them really but a backing with hook to hang it and four teeny clips, one to each side to hold the lay out.

Great wall-hanging and I love the old photos, especially that one of your mom. I know I say it all the time, but you really do nice work - I love the LO you did from that t-shirt inspiration too.
