My daily schedule has been getting up at 5:00 a.m. and start the coffee maker. While the coffee is brewing then I check my emails and blog post comments. Then by 8:00 a.m. do a bit of paperwork to catch up on things until 10:00 a.m. The remainder of the day is spent thinking about and doing craft things.
Lately, I’ve had a bit of trouble getting away from the computer by 8:00 a.m. Lots, and lots of trouble. So much so that I’m really having a hard time getting myself on track.
I have so many projects in the works now that I’ve really gummed up the works here.
Picture frames from the Goodwill store.
These two frames need to be sanded and painted. I haven’t chosen the papers yet for the bulletin boards that will be framed so I have not chosen a paint color.
Remember this trip to the big box hardware store?
The cut pieces of wood have now been turned into this.
Man did we ever create a powerful stink in this house yesterday. Attaching this self healing rubber cork to the wood with Contact Cement. Man, Joe and I were both quite loopy by the time this part of the project was over.
We had to save ourselves and go to Red Lobster for dinner. The price we had to pay for getting out of the fumes 😀 and letting them be expelled from our house by having every vent fan running from one end to the other 😀
Yesterday I had Joe cut more cardboard for me. I’ve got an additional five Post-It holders to do. Revamp the Poker holders I made. I did spend a couple hours on the telephone with Tim to get the necessary information for what he wants done with the Poker holders. That was a much needed conversation.
I’m still doing the “Inventory” thing with my dies. I have one set of Alpha Dies from Sizzix to complete then to begin on my Nestabilities/Shapabilities dies. Then all the die cutting and punching will be done.
I have one of my Sizzix Alpha Die sets completed and attached to the Inventory Sheets.
While cutting and mounting these alpha dies a thought occurred to me. How about a “RANSOM NOTE” card challenge?
Use your letter stickers, alpha stamps, alpha dies, cut out words from magazines, tear out words from newspapers. Crumple up your papers and ink them up. Make them look like they have been around the world and back. Mess things up a bit.
What would the card front or inside say? I’m still thinking on that and would sure enjoy some input from you guys.
Joe loves to read. We have a Barnes & Noble close to our house that we hit about once a month. I’m thinking of getting him a gift card to purchase his next set of books. So my idea is while he is gone go to Barnes & Noble to get the gift card, talk to the manager and see if he/she would like to be in on a bit of fun.
Word the card in such a manner as to say Joe MUST go to Barnes & Noble. He is not allowed to leave the store without finding three books. There are two people he has to encounter. Joe has to say to each person “The sky is blue” and they are to respond back to him with “The sun glows red” (or some such nonsense). The second person that responds to him will hand over the gift card tucked into a book that is laying on their desk area. Then Joe has to go to the center of the store and loudly say “Happy Valentine’s Day” before he can go to the checkout stand.
Would I torture my husband in such a manner. HECK YA!! 😀 Joe is planning on being home before Valentine’s Day so this should work out. Now if I can keep him so that he doesn’t read this blog post 😀
Is anyone out there up for this CHALLENGE? 😀 You can do whatever is right for you and your spouse. Lynn, you can make Rod go out and find something you have made for him. Have him hunt around in your glorious flower beds. OMG, I crack myself up!
First, I need to take care of this little mess before I can go on to other greatness 😀
Today will be my final day of doing my computer stuff in the morning. I’m going to get cracking on the work I have to do after my first cup of coffee. Then later in the evening I’ll check my emails and tend to my blogs.
Ya, right. Well, that’s my plan for now and I’m gonna work my plan 😀
