Happy What's-On-Your-Workdesk-Wednesday Lovelies! If I sound a wee bit proud of myself in my post title, well...I am! I got a new toy, a scoring board, and I am amazed at the beautiful envelopes I've been making. But even more amazing is this: I have a stash of scrapbook papers that I no longer think is cute enough to scrapbook with (because I'm always finding something cuter) and yet these scrapbook papers look sooo cute when they're turned into envelopes! Especially the double-sided papers, because it looks like the envelope has a liner.
Oh happy day! I'm an envelope artist! Thank you Martha Stewart for making these tools!
So, now the trick will be to actually make cards with envelopes that match--instead of sitting around here just making envelopes and being in awe of the transformation of my old stash. But, mother's 87th birthday is in two days, then daughter's 19th birthday the day after that, and then my 24th wedding anniversary two days after that. (I was in the hospital with a baby on my fifth wedding anniversary...the nurses brought us a special dinner that night.)
So I have great reasons to make cards and matching envelopes!
In other news, I am knitting those squares right on schedule so I can begin the painstaking task of sewing together a throw. Then, I suddenly started having this urge to knit a cute tank top--so I'm tackling that next.
I had a Hobby Lobby shopping spree on clear stamps. Very excited about my new clear stamps!!
Oh how I wish I could have attended the WOYWW anniversary crop--love all you ladies, and from afar I so appreciate Julia and Jan and how they give of themselves to the deskers, and make these magical things happen!
Be a sticky-beak and visit all the deskers here.
