Thank you all for your concern over my temporary disappearance. I’m still here – my settings were just wonky. Hopefully that’s taken care of now.
Last night was card night and we had so much fun! My scanner is DOA at the moment – I might try to scan the cards tonight though. Each card used a new technique – we all really outdid ourselves. Rachel taught us how to make marbled-looking paper using shaving cream and liquid ink – and embossing too! Mom showed us how to use chalks and the watermark pad. Mary A taught us about cutting – she makes these incredibly intricate paper cuttings that are just amazing and WAY out of my league. I’m glad she could come! I played with white ink and with my sealing wax; Eva brought some gorgeous papers and we all found different ways to line our cards. I feel so creative and stimulated – and can’t wait for next month!
I really want my office to be like this:
I saw the sweetest thing at work today. Inside the cupboard with the teacups, thereâ€™s a little spreadsheet taped up with all the employees names down one side. Across the columns it says TEA, COFFEE, MILK, SUGAR. And thereâ€™s ticks and crosses to indicate everyoneâ€™s preferences. They spend all day making each other cuppas and I always wondered how they all knew what everyone liked. Itâ€™s bloody adorable.
