Hi there Crafty Stealers!

It’s the Third Thursday of November and I can hardly believe it! My Facebook friends are posting about how they are done with Christmas shopping and I feel like I’m already way behind – much less that far ahead of the game.  The holidays tend to go by in a blur, and I’ve found that sometimes it’s great food for the soul to just stop and take a BREAK. What better way to take a break, than to create – production and relaxation all rolled into one.

So, here’s my challenge to you this month – take 15 minutes for yourself and create! Set the timer on your microwave or on your phone for 15 minutes. It doesn’t matter whether you crop photos for 15 minutes, make cards or layouts for 15 minutes or edit photos for 15 minutes. You can even organize your supplies for 15 minutes if you’d like! Whatever it is, is has to be something you enjoy, something that relaxes you and something that you can also feel proud of.

Take a photo of what you’ve accomplished, and share it on the link below.  Then you’ll have a chance to win some CraftySteals goodies as your reward! Upload that photo by midnight on November 30th. On December 1st, we’ll randomly choose a winner.

Here’s what I accomplished in my 15 minutes.   I just did a little cropping and some embellishing and I’m so glad I finally got that story on paper. (The photos are from 2009!)



(Materials used: Teresa Collins Christmas Cottage Collection – that is still available at CraftySteals!)

Let me know if you have any questions by sending me an email at BLOG at CRAFTYSTEALS dot COM.  Otherwise enjoy your time! You’ll find that it’s easy to sneak 15 minutes of ANYTHING into your day and you will be so glad you did. :)

Have a great weekend,
