Hi! How has your weekend been? I’ve had a great weekend even though the hands on the clock seem to have to stepped it up, and I haven’t got everything done I hope to accomplish yet today.
This is as close to card making as I got today. The image is a digital from Bugaboo Stamps. Lucky for me, it was free last week. Love it! I colored this one with Prismacolor pencils. I’m going to try markers on the next one. Because time is of the essence, whichever one is faster and still looks good is going to be the winner. The wording was done on my computer using the Noodge font from Close To My Heart.

The room I worked so feverishly on yesterday was my den where I spend about 90 percent of my waking time when I am home. Currently, the room is divided into two areas – one where my computer, television, futon, and books are located and the other, Kathi’s Corner. I worked on the computer side of the room, washing the walls and window and moving the futon, computer desk, file cabinet, bookcase, television, and the armoire that held the TV. That last piece, in fact, was moved out to make more room.
Less perky (but not sore), I started on the dreaded “corner” today. The process there, I am afraid, is going to be a lot slower. I have a significant amount of purging to do. This week it is my goal to get my paper in order. Having been a CTMH consultant for nearly 12 years, I have accumulated a lot of paper. The last time I had a sale, I sold all my full sheets of discontinued Background & Texture paper. The scraps have occupied a big CTMH bag, which has been sitting in the corner of my closet. Until today, that is. The stack of paper in the photo is comprised of 5-1/2 inch “card-maker” squares. I’m hoping not to keep them but rather sell ‘em (cheap) in seasonal packages of 50 sheets. Anyone venture to guess how many squares of paper are in that stack? I gulped and discarded the paper that didn’t meet the size criteria.
Once Kathi’s Corner has been purged of its excess and everything is sorted out, I want to reconfigure the shelving and get my desk out of its claustrophobic corner.
For now, I’d better get my butt off the computer and back to the tasks at hand. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope your Sunday was the start to a wonderful week. Later…
