Good morning, my friends. I’m writing this at ridiculous o’clock because I woke up and thought it wasn’t worth going back to sleep… I reckon the plot has been well and truly lost here on the North wales coastline!!
However… my workdesk this morning… in all its messy glory…
Thought it best, really, to alter the angle yet again. Here you see a satisfactorily bulging ice cream box. Filled almost to completion with Mrs D’s cards. Only 8 more to go and I have completed the 90 she thinks she needs. The right shove pile is there at the front with the plastic box of dies used and STILL not put away. A piece of paper with an extra name to add to the harvest meal list for Sunday – I think that makes 60 we are cooking for – a good number. There’s the usual clutter of inks, brushes, glue, double sided tape, scissors, an image propped against the wall which I can’t decide yet (after two weeks) whether I will use or throw, a pile of pergamano magazines, an album I really want to finish but never get around to, a virginally empty cutting mat (apart from the folded paper destined for the waste bin). Further back are my glitter glues and perfect pearls, trays of peel offs, a plastic RUB of cards for the hotel, gift boxes and handbags for a commission, and the left shove pile (which has been sorted and then re-filled!).
Peering into the ice cream box is a most satisfactory exercise now! here’s a few examples…
Still using up Mrs D’s ready cut images! Must admit I love that stamped sentiment.
Fancied a bit of a change, so cut out that lovely new die I found at the show, then thought… what to put behind it? I know, I know – the wrong way around… but then, this is me we are dealing with here, not you sensible, logical good folk…
When I started this exercise I stamped a whole heap of the specially bought image Mrs D had chosen. This is the last one to be used. You see it peeking in the back of the card.
So, that’s me this week folks. Still busy, looking forward to my birthday next week, eagerly anticipating the crop a week on Saturday and thinking through what to offer as lunch, hoping to finish the last of these cards today, and working out if I really need 8lbs weight of beef to feed 48 of the 60 people on Sunday!!!
Take care my friends. God bless you.
