I’ve been spending a lot of time in the basement the past few days, sorting and boxing and re-organizing. There was a fair pile of trash and recycling at the curb this morning, and I’ve made several trips this week to charity garage sales.
In the studio, all of my 2013-2014 Annual Catalog pre-order is neatly filed away, all the color paper files and inks are re-ordered, and nearly all of my retirement items are inventoried and priced. Based on my own bins of goodies, the sale tables at Super Saturday on October 12 will be loaded!
Not so sure now when when we’ll be moving, but I’m visualizing where I want to be stamping and holding classes. Although I’ve loved working in the basement here (especially when the sun pours through the south window), I’ve always been mindful of the potential for water. My husband hates that there is so much furniture down there, but I see one idea after another of what I’d like and keep dreaming.
Anyway, when the tables were clear enough, I did get some good work done this week. This card was inspired by a swap card someone got from someone. (Super Saturday swappers, see why we like your name on your work?) All the card stock here is retiring — but I’ll say again that you will love the new In Colors and the returning colors that are “joining the family”! I’d love to remake this card then. I think this card is suitable for a guy — do you agree?
