The Tim Holtz Crazy Cats have finally found a home in my studio. They came the same day a new set of planner stamps arrived.
I was instantly inspired! The cats look more frazzled to me than crazy. I am sure like me, you are sometimes overwhelmed by your schedule. I don't know how it even happens. I try not to pack our lives with events, but they seem to find there way onto our calendar without me noticing. I think they may be multiplying in my sleep. UGGGGG!
That overwhelmed feeling was the springboard for this ATC. Read on for instructions.
