I am indeed now struck down by the dreaded Headless Chicken Syndrome!!! This is a crippling and debilitating condition which leaves the scrapper unable to adequately focus on anything other than Masters projects which have become all consuming in terms of time, money, physical and mental strength. I'm suffering typical side effects such as Crankybumitis, starvation, anxiety, extreme thirst and chocolate withdrawals. I've developed obsessive compulsive behaviours such as repeatedly looking at the clock to see how many hours are left until I can make the last Express Post pick up tomorrow afternoon. My multi-tasking skills are being seriously challenged as I attempt to do my job while my brain takes small leaves of absence about every ten seconds to think about what I can do to finish off my mini album which is still ONLY HALF FRICKIN DONE!!!!!!

Soooooooo who wants to pull an all nighter with me???? lol Unfortunately, as today is the last full day I have to complete it, I will be up until the wee small hours methinks, frazzled and coffee overloaded, with photo tabs stuck to my jammies, face smeared in ink and Pritt with what looks like the remains of a tornado in a scrap shop strewn all around me.........

If you're around this afternoon or tonight do PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a minute to say hello as I'm going to let my blog keep me company, warmly glowing from my computer screen with hopefully some love and reassurance that it's okay, it's totally worth going competely nucking futs over!!!! I may not be able to respond immediatley to people's comments given that my fingers will be worn down to bloodied stumps from hours of scrapping but I promise I'll regularly check to see if anyone has stopped in!!!

It's such a shame that what I really need right now - like a valium and a strong bourbon and Coke and a nap - won't actually help me achieve anything..............

Does anyone have any good tips on how to be completely focused and artistically brilliant whilst being distracted, frazzled, time pressured, panicky and stressed? Anyone? Gee it's quiet in here.......... :)
