Way long ago I took some personality tests, the Myers-Briggs personality profile, I think. One thing I learned about myself: I am a very strong J, which stands for Judging (Its opposite is P, Perceiving). I know that sounds bad, but think about J people being finishers and P people being starters. *
I mention this because yesterday was preorder for next month's Studio Calico kit, and I have barely touched last month's kit. This drives the J in me NUTS since I like to finish before I start something new. Too many open projects sap my energy.
I feel particularly driven because I used my womanly wiles successfully to convince my husband to order two add-ons for me, Mendocino and Santa Cruz. He did, so I am doing his ironing and desperately working on using up last month's kit.
I only bought the main kit last month, plus some extra paper; as a result, my goal is 6-8 layouts. These are my third and fourth:
The colors are rather delicate, but I think I like the oranges on the autumn layout. To do the misting, I flipped over the die cut paper and misted with yellow, orange, and bronze.
The second layout is based on this week's SC sketch. The English teacher in me liked using a kit named On the Easel for a page about my son's art.
* In case you are interested, I've always been a very strong I (introvert) and J (judging), a weak N (intuitive), and I've switched from a weak F (feeling) when I was younger to a weak T (thinking) now.
ETA: So right now I'm INTJ, The Scientist. Says the English teacher. Go figure! The inititals link I added shows famous people who share my profile. I'm excited that I share traits with Michelle Obama and Jane Austen, but nervous that I share traits with Hannibal Lecter and Prof. Moriarty.
