Are you pro-crastination?

Some people are pro animals, pro teaching, pro this, pro that.. All I am pro is pro-crastination! No matter how many times I regret postponing doing things till the very very last minute , how many ever times I can hear my mom’s voice clearly in the back of my head, singing the “I told you so” song.. ( I have heard this so many times, it has almost entered the “Fond tunes” list 🙂 ) , I still procrastinate! 

The reason for this rant? Parents magazine is conducting a  craft mom’s contest and the last day for submission is today. I knew about this contest for the past month, yet I had been delaying my submissions. Finally today I uploaded my craft snaps on their website.

This is something I made for Rad’s first birthday and have been waiting for a chance to send to Shruti’s artsy craftsy. I may submit it for this month’s challenge, still not sure. 

You can see my submission, here.

Tata!
