Burning the Midnight Oil

Do you ever have one of those nights when you go to bed and an idea for a project jumps in your head. That is what happened to me last night. Usually I roll over and go to sleep hoping desperately to remember the epiphany. Occasionally I decide it's such a worthy idea that I jot or sketch it down in my notepad. However, last night the idea was so strong I could visualize the project from start to end. I kept thinking about it and then couldn't get back to sleep. I ended up getting up with the thought that I'd just "start" the project. Ya right. Once I started I couldn't stop. Next thing I know it's 2:30 in the morning and it dawns on me that I am REALLY going to pay for this late night creativity the next day.

And yes I am tired today but I have a finished layout to show for it! Hehe. Sometimes you just need to do what you gotta do.

Supplies: PP from my Winter Wonderland Collection: Snow Day and Nordic paper packs, Round Alphas are my Mini Round Alphas (available free here on my Blog). Stitching Basic Stitches no1 by MaryAnn Wise @2peasinabucket.com.

  4. Love it! Staying up late paid off :) I can't say I've gotten up to work on a project, but I've stayed up until that time working on one I started earlier in the night. I am a night owl too :)
