I haven’t had the ability to do some full on card crafting, so I stamped a couple of images in my bullet journal and colored those in with Prismacolors. It helped to do something small just so that I don’t have to stare forlornly at my craft equipment, wishing I could use it. Just doing these two images made me happy and now I see them when I flip back through my notebook.
So, if you don’t have time to do a full on session, take out one stamp, stamp it somewhere and then color it in. Or if you only have coloring books available, pick a page with a lot of small discrete items and color one in then put the pencils away. Sometimes you only need five minutes to get the benefit of doing some crafting.
