Get Well Soon Cards.

getwell (3)One of my good friends had an accident and broke her vertebrae this week and my sister had surgery this week. I hope they continue on the road to recovery and I made them cards with my Technique Tuesday stamps and Copics. I saw the idea on Sandy Allnock’s blog, but I decided to use the Copics to get more practice. I definitely plan to get my hands on some Zig Clean Color markers in the very near future.

Monday Podcast 5 : On a Tuesday :)

wpid-20150424_185233.jpgSorry, but kiddie sports are in full swing around here, so podcasts complete before Wednesday are a complete win in my mind. Whether we have rain or shine somebody is off to track, soccer or gymnastics. It makes it a little more challenging to schedule work time, but it is nothing new. I still have some card stuff in the pipeline, but cards are the hardest thing for me to let go and be done with. I always see something else I can do with them or add to them and then I am not quite finished, now am I? I got some birthday discounts from the arts and craft stores so I can not wait to make good use of them on new stuff to play with. The quote of the week is by C. S. Lewis, “Life is too deep for words, so don’t try to describe it, just live it.” Living it is quite enough, don’t you think?

Finished business.

20141201_131254Well, almost. The finish line is in sight, at least where my cards are concerned. There are some finishing touches on the last of them and then off they go to the mail. I am pretty happy with how they turned out, for the most part. I hope that they bring joy to the people who get them.

Ramping up.

todolistIt is that time of the year when my days really start to run together. Yay. There is Thanksgiving, the beginning of Christmas mailing season, and wrapping up all of our 2014 business so that it does not overlap into 2015. Today I spent a lot of time on Christmas card production, which I am hoping to complete by Tuesday so that I can be completely free to enjoy Thanksgiving adventures with the kids.
