You know, having two and a half weeks off can be very deceiving. I’m down to the final countdown (I have to go back to work on Monday) and I realized I’ve really done very little other than run the girls around town in our two and a half weeks off. I had grand plans…paint the bathroom (I did at least get the paint and supplies), photograph all my jewelry I haven’t photographed yet (we’re talking several dozen pieces here, yet to get to that), make my apron for my Artful Journey apron swap (picked up a generic apron at Hobby Lobby yesterday and now have to figure out how the heck to embellish it…open to suggestions!), start on my ATCs for our Artful Journey swaps (oh, now I remember what I’ve been saving those cut up cereal boxes for!), weed the flower beds in the front yard (yeah right, like that was really gonna happen)…and the list goes on. Problem is, when we haven’t been in the car driving around town, I’ve gotten distracted by other things. I made some Christmas tags, and some Christmas Eve art, and Monday night, I made this fun little collage. It’s on a piece of scrap wood we used to build my shelves which now hold all my stamps. I’ve discovered that I like working on wood a lot better than on canvas. And it’s much cheaper! The back has a cute story behind it. Sarah had written “I Love You” on the back of the piece of wood before I did anything with it. I really struggled with covering it up when I was finishing the back of the piece! So I told Sarah about it, and she said she’d just write it again for me. Adds a nice finishing touch, don’t you think?
