I worked in my craftroom until almost 10PM cleaning, and decluttering. In the next couple of weeks, a friend of mine is bringing his twelve year old daughter to craft with me, and I thought it would be fun to pull some items together to give her..She doesn’t have any supplies, and we all know I’m a crafty hoarder, so have a lot more than my fair share. I gathered two full bags of things, and will probably have another couple of bags of things ready before she comes.
I also wanted to be able to get into my ribbon drawer without it jamming, as I continue to put miscellaneous things in that drawer that should be stored elsewhere. I can now proudly announce that my ribbon drawer is working efficiently now, and I can’t remember the last time I could say that.
I also used the spray Gesso I’d bought in my art journal to prepare a two-page spread for my next project..I’m not sure what I was thinking, when I decided to spray it into a cardboard box in my window-closed craft room. The fumes and the white mist were clearly not well considered…..
I also organized all of the cards I’ve gotten from viewers and put them in a drawer, instead of letting them clog yet another drawer. I used a cardboard box, filled it with cards, and had to involve a second box for cards that were too large for the first..
And finally, I grabbed a bunch of cards I’ve made recently, and put them in a plastic box with my address books and stamps, so that tomorrow I can finally get caught up on sending cards. I owe so many people cards, and have not sent any for a couple of months, so I hope I brought enough to get myself up to date. I’ll let you know how it goes tomorrow.
