I was so not prepared for this morning. Woke up with a sinus headache. Went back to bed long enough for the dogs to start carrying on. A big black Angus cow was taking a stroll through my orchard. I do not have cows. I let her wander on her merry way then decided I needed to get the day started.
Let's see... in the foreground is the cover of the En Masse journal. The brown paint started peeling up so I had to do some touch up work after I got the signatures stitched in. I ran some gesso over the stitching while I was priming the peeled areas.
Beyond that you'll see a couple of stamps and ink spots where I added inside goodness to a card before mailing yesterday.
The red and green bags beyond that? This is Emergency Preparedness Week in Missouri. The green bag holds all of the items for our Emergency First Aid kit and the red is a backpack for the purpose.
Regardless of where you live, being prepared for the first 72 hours following a natural disaster is very important. If you would like to know more, check out my post yesterday HERE That is my Ozarks Journal Blog. On Friday I'll be talking about what is inside that red back pack. In the meantime, do you own a whistle? Every member of your family should have a whistle in case of a disaster. Why? In case you can not call out loud enough repeatedly for responders to find you, a whistle will work and they are trained to listen for them amongst the rubble.
That's my desk? What's on yours? When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Stamping Ground where Miss Julia has a long list of other studios you can peek into. No standing on an up-turned milk pail to look in the window. We open the doors wide and welcome you. We won’t touch.. just look. J I can't wait to peek but if Bob is home for I might be late again getting 'round. Pleaseleave your number and you'll be first on my list.
