I can’t believe it’s August already. I’ll blink and it will be January and continue to be January for about four months. I really need to stop whining about winter….or do I?
The card fronts that I started yesterday, upon further reflection (used some big girl words there), were not as horrible as I originally remembered them to be. I decided to continue with my original plan and in the end, I don’t think they are garbage. Ok, the envelopes might be, but the cards are not. I decided to use sparkling spray ink (I made up that name) on the envelopes and they took on the look of something that was dropped on the ground and landed in mud. Of course they were not mud colored, but still, the image remains. I do think I’ll have to make them over, as they really are pretty bad, but then again, maybe by tomorrow, I’ll think they are ok. Seems that the way my craftiness has been going lately.
I need to make a small album for our great niece this week. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s my way of making myself get serious about it. Tonight we are going out for dinner with friends and then to horse races. I’m not a big fan of them, but do like sitting around and just people watching. It’s always fun to catch up with old friends too.
So I’m off to the races, sounds like of catchy, huh?
