In honor of Memorial Weekend, my Tuesday Trio Card for Sketch #69 (an anything goes sketch) is a Happy Memorial Day card! Yes, there are more buttons! Yes, Fabulous Spouse has already noticed that we are in violation of button probation, but Creative Me does not care… because it is embellishment week!
here) so this is what my work desk looks like now that Creative Me has finished our One Little Word (OLW) Homework. PA Me has been distracting Creative Me a lot lately, so we got this done just under the wire!
This Month, Ali Edwards gave us a PDF to write down the task/ mission/ goal/ objective/ thoughts/ or stuff to tackle …and our progress (not negative) with our word and these tasks. The POW will be the first to admit that this was a busy month, and that we seemed to be putting out fires and embracing Survival Mode rather than Embracing Life! (speaking of survival mode, The POW and the scanner are not talking right now, so here is the 8.5 x11 without the text. Will try and update after volunteering this morning).
However, we are happy to report that we are all embracing our new family well, and that the WMD is actually sleeping in her own bed! Even Shark Bait (“Shark Bait! Ooh Ha Ha”- from finding Nemo. Sorry couldn’t resist!), has been behaving less like an almost terrible two year old (especially at dinner) who needs to be fed to the sharks, and more like your average almost loveable toddler who you want to eat up because he is TOO cute. The POW is almost ready to let the poor priest that we keep in the attic for emergency exorcisms go, almost…
The real breakthrough, though, is that OCD Me finally convinced the POW and Fabulous Spouse to get a smart phone! Woo Hoo! Our last new phone was in 2003 when the Illusive Middle Child helped us out and put our phone in the washing machine because it “looked dirty”. The Upside, We are embracing technology. The downside, technology has left us in the dust and is not looking back. OCD Me is a manual reader, but there is only like 20 pages to the manual, and none of those pages answer any of my questions… like how do we attach a photo to our contact? Because every time we take a picture and then try to attach it, it just attaches to the “find out your data usage” phone #. Seriously?! However, we did figure out how to download angry birds, so the rest is gravy, right?
As for embellishments, here is the link to round 2 where we took everything out, but OCD Me focused on beads and eyelets. This is the link to round 3 ( part 1 & part 2) where we got our brads under control.
