Organize your Stuff: Week 12 (round 4): WOYWW …Ribbons & Fibers Intermission

Hello fellow WOYWW –ers! PA Me loves this point in the week, because she knows it is not that bad, and she likes to watch OCD Me pace around wondering if someone is judging her for the mess we have made of our workspace! (FYI- it is a good thing that this is not what’s on your kitchen counter…then we would have reality cameras and people in hazmat suits here!).

Creative Me is in summer mode, which swings between extra crafty and taking a siesta with PA Me and looking for the Cabana boy to refill her Margarita glass. This week is a crafty one! We have a layout in progress, and we have wacked out some cool starburst cards inspired by Operation Write Home (OWH) who are looking for cards for the troops to send home to their loved ones. Summer is slow for them this time of year, but the troops still want to write their families! Send OWH a card or two if you have the chance!

Papers for this card were ancient Cosmo Cricket.
The eyelet is from Michaels or Jo Anns from around 2004, so manufacturer unkown.
White Ric Rac from the wall at the scrapbook store, manufacturer unknown.

If you like the flower/ rosette, the POW wanted you to know that there is a tutorial in the last post.

OCD Me is girding her loins for the summer invasion, as there are only 5 days left of school, then Girl Friday and her brothers will be about the house all day every day! The POW vows to keep them in check, but PA Me will believe it when she sees it. Inner Hoarder is crying. Guarantee: minimum one inch of paper, and countless other things will go missing this summer. Girl Friday is very creative.

Final thought in this ribbon and fiber intermission. Question of the week: do you sew your layouts/ cards?

It is well documented that our sewing machine is in solitary confinement right now for tension issues and a purely sociopathic hate of Creative Me. The POW would like to give it another try, but Creative Me is not on board yet. We will see.

Love the way you did the medallion! And the sentiment as part of your papers. Super colors.

That looks like quite a collection of CTMH stamps you have there! FUN! Love the layout you are working on and your cards is fabulous! I handstitch on my cards, although I own a full size sewing machine and two smaller ones, I don't know how to operate them :( I've tried without success!

I haven't been to your site before, so your various personalities are new to me...very clever! Boy, What's on Your Kitchen Counter Wednesday would be something else altogether, wouldn't it? Very pretty card. Happy WOYWW!

Nice double layout there and that card is lovely. Kitchen units - hmmmn! Nothing on mine as I am too busy on my official nosey at other peoples' desks!! Yes I do sew with my machine on scrapbook layouts if I feel it could do with it! I usually keep a stock of needles that are not quite sharp enough for fabric but not quite dud yet for the job!!

Love your card and your post! POW me found quite a few giggles cropping up as I read through it! I have been cleaning and reorganizing my craft room this week and realized that I took am a stash hoarder. I so love being creative but I would rather it didn't cut into my supply status! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #46
