Thank you cards
The last time I posted I told you that I was punching out DSP squares and gluing them on a 3 " square. The focal point of these cards were what I was working on. I had 18 of them done (without flowers) when I last wrote and was thinking about making about 30 of them. Well...after I got them all done, I had 45 of the squares made! And, I did not make a dent in the DSP scraps, nor the card stock bin. But after I got done making flowers yesterday, the card stock scrap bin is noticeably emptier! YEAH! I have all the flowers and leaves attached to all 45 squares. These 6 that I finished up for you tonight went very fast. I decided to post all of these so that you could see how different they look even with all of them having the same base colors. While I was cutting these flowers out yesterday, I also cut a bunch of different flowers and assembled them for my shoe and tell box. All in all...I am guessing I made about 125 flowers which probably took about 12 hours to do! SHOOT ME! and put me out of my misery! I must be crazy. But shouldn't have to do any for the show and tell box for next month, maybe a couple of months as there were still flowers left in it.
Today I marked a bunch of stuff for the flea market, put it in baskets, and put it in the van. Sarah was also over for a visit and I gave her birthday presents as I did not see her on her birthday. She adored the flower magnets and I let her pick out 3 for her fridge. She also loved the other magnets I am making and she thinks all of them will sell good. I hope she is right about that! I need to bring home, (or find some around here) some more string tags so that I can get the rest of my stuff marked. But I made a big dent it in today and my living room is starting to look more like a living room again!
Tonight I set up my little tv tray table on the bed and worked on attaching buttons, flowers, and little spools of thread onto my pin cushion tags. I haven't begun to make a dent in the tin of them that needs to be decorated as I have TONS of extras, but I want to get enough done so that I have at least one for each pin cushion finished, I think I have about 8 to go and will probably finish them up before hitting the hay. I have been up late just about every night this week. Hopefully next week I will get on a better sleep pattern. Have a good one! Me
