This is a great thread, I am laughing since a lot of it applies to me as well.
I learned: my husband actually gets the whole card making thing and took over the boys for the day to let me do this.
I can do cards that I may not have a specific plan for because it's fun and creative.
I CAN use that beautiful DSP that I have been afraid to cut, that's what I bought it for.
Oh yeah, and do not leave a 6 year old alone in my craft room (think construction paper with about 100 brads all around the outside and scraps stuck on with a whole sheet of dimensionals)
