There’s a change in the weather coming and I’m a great predictor of rain. I think they should hire people with arthritis (or similar illnesses) as weather forecasters because I am almost 100% on my predictions and our local weatherman is at about 50%. I’ve often wondered why local news stations don’t have people with arthritis on retainer, just to verify if the weather man or woman is close to being right. They would be a lot more effective if they did. I am really surprised that no one has taken advantage of this gift we have. It’s a genius idea to improve their overall effectiveness and they are ignoring an untapped market of talent (so to speak.)
I went to a few garage sales this morning, but hit a wall when the front started to move into the area and had to call it a day. If you have any kind of illness like this, you know what I’m talking about. You just need to take a nap and hope when you wake from your nap that the front has passed. In my case, the front must be sitting on us as I still haven’t felt any better, so I haven’t accomplished anything today. I did find a really great idea for a card though. I don’t think I can explain it well, but it involves using the circle dies that nest inside each other and a color wheel idea. I hope it will work and if it does, it will make a really easy, but interesting card. I’m going to have to spend a little bit of time working out the logistics of it, but once I do, I’m pretty sure you’ll wonder how I did it. Of course once you see the video you won’t wonder, but when you see the photo, you probably will. I saw a picture of something similar in an old craft magazine (of course I don’t remember the name of the magazine), and at the time, I didn’t have a die cutting machine that I could operate, so I never tried it. I’ve never seen anything like it on any card making videos, so this could be really different and fun, at least I’m hoping it is.
I’ll hopefully be able to give it a try tomorrow when the weather either improves or gets worse. If it starts to drizzle, I’ll feel worse, but if it really rains hard, I feel better. Isn’t that weird? Regardless, I’m going to make myself be productive, no matter what the weather does.
