First, our Tuesday Trio Design Team card for this week (Sketch #57). This was actually a little challenging for Creative Me because we had to use our three favorite things. Only Three! That unleashed five way negotiations in the mind, and at one point OCD Me threatened to strafe the other personalities fearing an uprising! We calmed her down, promised not to demonstrate in the streets, keep out the swirlies and the butterflies (Creative Me-I heart me some butterflies!!!), and reminded her that we were having Chinese (ok.. fake Panda Express Chinese), but only if we could get our homework done.
With visions of soy sauce dancing in our heads, we settled on a relatively simple card. Our three things are (1) Stamping! Of course! We stamped the silhouette, sentiment, and used like seven different colors of inks with a piece of sink sponge to make the rainbow fade on the borders of the cardstock pieces.
(3) Misting! Or more specifically glitter shimmer and shine! The above mentioned paper circles are glimmer misted and the brad holding it all together was stickled. Creative Me readily admits that mists are her current uber weekness… ok… they are our crack. But unlike Charlie Sheen, we do not have the Godesses and a personal trainer to help us kick the habit.
Next, we will tackle fonts. Fonts!?! Shut the front door! Seriously? The POW does admit to a coup last year by PA Me and the Inner Hoarder…and summer break… that kept us from finishing, but seriously? OK, to those of you who have enough fonts on your computer that it would take a week to organize them... we apologize. We thought that the ABC order that they arrived in our Microsoft Office Suite was good enough.
We have fonts, but they are in the form of stickers and stamps, and those weeks are already behind us (or ahead of us, as the Organization Challenge restarts in 3 Weeks!). Maybe we are finally those old people who have not embraced technology yet? (The POW officially apologizes to Rose the Secretary for whom she worked in college. We now understand that there is nothing senile about wanting to use a typewriter to hand type 200 form letters because the word processor program and mail merge are scary. )
See you at the end of the week! Honestly though, are there any of you guys out there for whom fonts would be your Memorabilia Week? (That is NOT the pile of memorabilia you are looking for).
