I’ve been crazy busy the last few weeks. Busy, as in you-sit-at-that-computer-missy-and-don’t-you-get-up-until-the-timer-goes-off-in-two-hours busy. It’s actually been a fairly effective way to get a lot done; even though two hours of sitting and typing is hard on my neck and back, knowing I’ll be done when the bell rings keeps me going. (Now why can’t I use a similar self-imposed strategy for other things I need to do, like exercise?)
However, while working on Super Saturday yesterday, I managed a little stamping. It was delightful: a beautiful afternoon, rubber and ink in front of me, and my husband in the room next door ironing. Does it get any better than that?
This is for one of the male birthdays this fall. A card by Wendy Weixler inspired me to get out the painter’s tape and sponges. Originally the leaves were one color, but I daringly (and dangerously) decided to daub in additional color after the card was finished. I like it better now. I’ll do some variations on this card to get stocked up for the coming weeks — like I don’t have any cards ready to send — and use this for the Colonial House camp on October 5.
