I made two orders from the Peg Stamp company and was really excited when they came. I didn’t open the first one immediately, as I knew I would be getting the second order and wanted to open them, do a haul and make a card with everything I had purchased. Unfortunately, the first envelope disappeared. I mean gone. I know it’s in the house somewhere, but where did I put it. I’m sure it’s somewhere “safe.” but I spent most of this afternoon searching for the bag and still no sign of it.
If I have to resort to cleaning my craft room, you know I’m serious about finding something. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I’ll bet Jennifer McGuire has never lost a stamp order, or anything else for that matter. I picture her having an ‘in” basket for all incoming mail. Next, there is a person assigned to opening the mail, sorting it into categories, labeling it, photographing it and putting the photograph into her own Jennifer McGuire Dewey decimal system. She’s one super organized woman and when I watch a tour of her craft room, I get the feeling that somehow I just saw a glimpse of perfection, something I will never be able to replicate, and like the sun, so bright it could damage my eyes..
It’s like a photograph that’s been photo-shopped. Can anything really be that perfect or maintained at that level of perfection? I’m not sure, I just know that my craft room has some serious issues, namely I think it ate the package from the peg stamp company. That darn craft room.
I have one last thought completed unrelated to my craft room. If I make a card using one of Jennifer McGuire’s techniques and the card isn’t really up to her caliber, do I still show the video, or do I junk it? I know she would never show the video, but if I am being honest with myself, I realize I’m no Jennifer McGuire, so shouldn’t I show my card, flaws and all? It’s not really flawed, it’s just not attractive in my opinion. I guess I’ll have Rich put it up and see what people think. I’ll probably regret it, as this isn’t something to be proud of producing.
