For me is time as I work full time, energy as I am going thru chemo treatmensts every other week for three days in a row for Colon Cancer and the motivation to sit and do the work. Once I start working on a project, I can't stop until is done. My layouts are simple, but I like them that way. Since I decided that due to money limitations, I will use what I have on hand, I went back to use letter stickers, etc. It is fun to do so! Lots of chipboards and paper that I have accumulated for years! Only go to the stire to buy adhesive!
