Hope all of our Canadian readers had a happy Canada Day (and are enjoying Prince William and Lady Kate), and our American Readers had a wonderful Independence Day! We know that we did!
Here is what’s on our desk this week. It looks like a stray mortar from the fireworks display exploded in here, but we had our hands full with holiday fun. Inconcieveable! We know. But besides never fighting a land war in Asia or threatening a Sicilian when death is on the line, a little known fact is that there is no such thing as quiet time when entertaining company and celebating national holidays are on the agenda!
Items of note are paper mache stars for kids project on our chair, fabric which had 2 inch strips cut off to be used as bike decorations in our 4th of July nieborhood bike parade, and leftover paint from our OLW project (last post). We need to let OCD Me out a little more... or at least let the POW order a maid!
Also, for those who asked, yes, that is a small wall of CTMH clear acrylic stamps (blame the Inner Hoarder who has never found a stamp that she did not love), and they are stored in CD sized milk crate containers. We got some at Wal Mart and the last few Fred Meyers (used to be $1 now like $1.50...darned inflation and recession!). Hope that helps.
There are many more desks…most if not all neater, and not assailed by the rocket’s red glare… at Julia’s Stamping Ground. Please take a peak and be inspired.
Here is our Design Team card for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch #74- doodling. Creative Me got to break out some of her favorite Close to My Heart stamps (D1257 Make it count), and Tim Holtz spinners for the clock hands. The doodling was the flowers and flourishes that framed the clock. This took FOREVER as the ink marker kept drying up on me! Tip: keep reinkers of your favorite colors on hand...always.
This is more Inependance Day...
Here is the gratuitus family shot...actually the only scene with all three in one place (we even got Shark Bait in the photo)...just because the POW wanted to share...and they look so darned cute!
