I made some time to stamp this morning. I had wanted to do the Whiff of Joy sketch challenge, but then I saw Lynn’s SCS Technique Challenge and thought I’d pair the two. Lynn’s challege was to create an orgami box. You can see the directions and PDF template HERE. I actually needed a little box like this (explained below). I used Cosmo Cricket’s Chemistry Paper. I got mine from Sweet Lindsey at Jacksonbelle Embellishments. The box is approximately 5″ square and 2″ deep. The instructions were easy-peasy and it can be made with 2 sheets of 12×12 cardstock.
Last week I missed my monthly book club lunch due to a last minute conference call. I also had completely forgotten that I had volunteered to bring dessert this month. I had made this big production (I know, my real-life friends are having trouble understanding that I would make a big production out of anything!?) My poor, poor book club lady friends – they had no dessert last Wednesday. It never even occurred to me until Wednesday night on my way to church that I had left them high and dry without chocolate. I feel terrible. My solution is to take each of them some chocolate chip cookies sometime this week. Now, we’ll see if I can actually get it done… but wouldn’t this box be so cute with the Willow with Cookies stamped image?
Remember the weekend shopping trip I was so pumped up for? It was a fabulous day! I got the best piece of furniture for my stamping room, as well as some cool organizational stuff. The furniture comes tomorrow via Daddy’s Delivery!! (I live so far out in the boonies – the mailman is the only one that delivers here <eyeroll>) I can’t wait for Mom & Dad to pull up and unload the pickup truck. I have another piece that won’t be here until Friday, so hopefully over the weekend I can show pictures of my space. I promised that months ago, but honestly it’s such a weird space and nothing has seemed to work, thus far. I’m so excited to see it all pull together and share because I think it might work for several other addicts out there!!
I need to get back to work. Thanks for stopping by!
