Another week has flashed by and here we are off checking each others desks. This past week left me little time to create with lots of the humdrums to do and to add to it all a sneezing, coughing cold. So when time was available to create it was mired in stuffed sinus, itchy eyes and runny nose.
I managed to keep up to date on my art calandars and to watch a video that CPS sells with Joanne Sharpe and her Lettering. So here is the desk. I made Chris a thank you card based on a page I saw on Pinterest from Rosie's Arty Stuff. Turns out she is a Brit and some times partcipates in WOYWW. I cannot link to her blog from my iPad so just Google her. Mine is not as arty as her page but her wording touched a spot in my heart and was just what I wanted to say, changed up a little.
This was a busy social week and we also made marmalade as our friends Carol and Larry gave us some grapefruit and Meyers lemons. They grew them in their garden in Houston.
We discovered that you can sterilize and process in the oven and avoid cauldrons of boiling water. This is good as we have an electri induction top and all the pots and pans have to be stainless.
Now a question to all of you who participate in swaps. What do you do with post cards, ATCs, etc that you have accumulated in years of swaps. I have all the old ones in bags and boxes and I am running out of room. So what does everyone do?
This is one corner of my room the east end of the window seat
More under the window seat
The wire thing was for scrunching up tiered skirts.
I would love to hear your ideas as some ofmy swaps are over10 years old.
Time to sleep. Have a great week.
