So, what we have on the left side and around the matt are some of the goodies I just bought, thinking I could make pillow boxes for all the gift cards I'd be giving. So there is Tim Holtz's pillowbox die. And then I acquired a couple of Dyan's spray inks and stencils. I had watched a video of her, you see; and it looked so simple. Hah! (Of course now I know why she uses the paper towel roll the way she does...notice the few sheets I used on the right?) So, while the card is an experamental mess, I know she'll love it, as she's loved all of my art for 50 years! LOL! I'll try to get that to post tomorrow: as it's taken 48 minutes to load the photo....(for Christmas, I want the bloody cable company to get off their asses and lay some cable up the hill!!)
As far as the pillow boxes??? THey would work great, if all the gift cards I bought didn't come on these full-sized cards that have the activation bar code thingies on them. OK, maybe I should go to the actuall stores to get the regular sized ones, but then I'd be even further behind, as this was a one stop while doing groceries "get er done" kinda mode. but don't fret; I will be making them to have ready. And as for the stencils and sprays; they kinda facinate me, so I'll work on perfecting them too!
Oh, and I found a great use for the TH little binder clips: they are holding closed the package of the most wonderful cookie ever!! A Moravian Ginger Spice cookie that I found at Fresh Market!! Some bakery in North Carolina makes them...best I've ever found! Bad news, while they say the serving size is 9 cookies (yay!) I ate probably 30 of them while doing the card...bad naughty Kim...Oh, washed down with Mt. Dew, which is why I can still type at 10:15 pm...
SO, the hour, the sugar, the time waiting, have all contributed to a very bizarre post; which I will end now. Go see Julia at the Stamping Ground to see what the Wednesday Workdesk thingy is all about, then go hop the world of workdesks! And also, I want to wish all my blogger friends a very Merry Christmas and a very Healthy, Happy, Crafty New Year!!
