Anyone else having a nice, lazy, turkey-hangover kind of day? I'm happy to say I've managed to spend most of the afternoon in my craft room. Good thing too! My stress levels were though the ROOF around 4:00 am due to not having my class planned for tomorrow night yet. Well ... that and a few other things. Namely Alicia! Yesterday morning she announced that she wanted pierced ears! She has NEVER wanted pierced ears before but yesterday she marched into the kitchen and stated that she wanted them. She then spent the next hour or so lamenting over whether to actually go through with it or not due to the pain factor. To make a long rather boring story short (unheard of for me!) she did it! I was so proud of her ... and she of herself ... and to be honest by the end of the day I had heard quite enough about how she "couldn't believe I did it's" and "YOU didn't get YOURS until Grade 5 and I'm only in Grade 2!" and "it seems like a dream that it actually happend" ... and on ... and on ... and on ... and on (I don't know where she gets it from *lol*). ANYWAY! At 3:30 am she came flying into my bedroom and told me that one of her earings had fallen out! Sure enough it was gone. It was in her bed but it SHOULD have been in her ear. So picture the scene. It's 3:30 am. She in her underwear ... I'm in mine ... we're in my bathroom, sitting on the floor with a bottle of rubbing alcohol, cotton balls and a curious cat as I attempt to reinsert the earing into the freshly punctured hole in her ear. Needless to say I couldn't get it back in. The hole was just too new. I could only get it 1/3 of the way in before it hurt too much. She went back to bed and so did I ... and then I layed there for the next 1 1/2 hours stressing over today. She would have to go back and get the earing re-done. You can only imagine how well THAT went down with her! Luckily Craig took her ... I simply couldn't afford the time ... or the mental energy involved. She came home happy as a lark with a brand new earing and said it hardly hurt at all. Thank GOD! Of course the downside is I'm once again exhausted ... which doesn't make for very efficient or stunning crafting! Nonetheless I managed to get 3 projects made ... and I will likely make a 4th bonus project just for fun. So lucky you! I get to show off lots of projects today.
First up is a quickie I made in about 5 minutes. I have had "Make Lunch Box Love Notes" on my "to-do" list since the first day of school. Here we are 1 month later and I finally made the time to do it. As with most projects on my list it only took 5 minutes so I wonder why it took a month to get around to it! Here they are:
Next up is a project I rejected yesterday for Technique Class. It used the Versamark Resist techqnique. Lookie:
As you know from my post the other day I settled on the Heat & Stick powder project (not technically a technique but good to learn how to use!). These are the other projects I came up with for the class ...
Last but not least is just a fun little halloween card.
That's it for now ... if time allows I'll make that 4th project tonight ... until next time ... have a stampy night!
