My desk this week is a disaster. I've spent more time putting stuff away than playing. While most would look at my room and not see progress, I can. If you check THIS post, you'll see how I spent my weekend. Forecast is showing rain for the next four days so I'll spend today working on blog posts then take advantage of the rain to be off-line and back to organizing.
To the left you can see the newest Paper Pumpkin from StampinUp. I need to get a couple of those done and up on the blog sometime today. Getting everything back to a routine is taking longer than I'd hoped now that Bob is back to work... albeit temporarily.
These are the beautiful ATCs I received in this year's swap. From top row, left to right:
Lisa Davolt (wish I could send you some of our rain)
Elizabeth aka silverscrapper
Robyn Josephs (+ goodies came in a lovely envelope made from a calendar picture)
Lisa Meyer (included a lovely postcard.
I loved the stamping on the envelope, including a sentiment that read
'Only dull people send dull envelopes' and a lovely zentangle stamp of an owl
One of the envelopes (I'm sorry, I can't remember whose - I'm thinking Lynn) included champagne glass confetti that went everywhere. My husband is still finding a glass here and there - and he smiles.
I am planning to post my ATC/ how to on here Friday. We'll see how much weather permits.
Sending love and hugs to Julia as she continues to improve. If you're hopping around to say hi, we miss you and wish you the best!
Also continued hugs to Lunch Lady Jan as she continues to heal from her father's passing. Losing a loved one is so very tough.
Wondering what I'm chattering on about? Each week we are blessed with opportunity to visit other creative spaces around the world, courtesy of Miss Julia. While our sweet travel director, Julia, is on a medical hiatus, her friend Jan (LunchLadyJan) is helping us along. So, When you are done visiting me in the Ozarks, please hop on over to Lunch Lady Jan where she 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. J I can't wait to peek.
