I’m participating in the Beyond the Books meme when I can think of answers to the questions! I like finding out more about other bloggers. It’s fun to share a few non-bookish things about ourselves. This week the topic is what we do with “me” time.

My “me” time

I usually wake up early and it’s a great time to spend an hour or so in the quiet house reading. A great way to start the day!  A cup of coffee, a cat or two on my lap and a book. Perfect “me” time!

Another way to spend the time I have for myself is to make greeting cards for my friends and family. I love the time I spend with rubber stamps, inks, paper, paints and all the other ingredients I like to use. Sometimes it takes awhile to switch off the analytical part of my brain, but when I get in the creative groove it’s so fun to try new items or new ways of using them. Some cards look better than others and sometimes the creativity doesn’t kick in, but it’s great “me” time however it works out.

What about you? How do you use your ‘me” time?
