Um, no, look closer … DH brought this gorgeous red pepper in from the garden for me, so before I cut it up for supper last night, I included it in my front entry tablescape. The sheet music leaning against the wall is “Recess Time March” from 1911. Can you imagine — 100 years old! Occasionally I scout out the sheet music bins at antiques stores in hopes I will find one for my tablescape themes. I’ve been able to get some really fun titles for practically nothing.
I deserve an apple. I’ve been working so hard the last month on school stuff that it’s been really stressful. Lots of sitting, lots of late nights. Yesterday I vowed I would not stop for lunch until I was done with the material and it was emailed off to the printer. At 11:30 I couldn’t stand it anymore; good thing I didn’t wait, because I didn’t finish till after 2. Then I took a little break on the back porch with the grocery ads and headed down to the studio — remember me? — for a lovely afternoon and evening. I have a big stamping week next week (three camps!), so I must keep ahead of things.
Just around the corner is Super Saturday. I have created a card that is very unlike my usual work. I think it just might go to Stampin’ Up! for the monthly Art Contest.
Did you know that Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, has a design contest each month? September’s theme is Christmas Cards. You can read more about her Creative Challenge here. Six people win free stamps each month — why not play along?
