The fresh and chilly outdoors the last couple of days really knocked Karma out--hehe!
I puttered with a few more cards yesterday. First time I have done the hole piercing around the scalloped edge, used dimensionals, a metal frame, and our new cardboard misting box. Fun! (The Shaklee box works great, Leah!)
Tried out the glue pad and foiling. Didn't work as I planned, but I liked the random shimmer.
Then a couple whimsical cards. Used the BowEasy--ha! I had to watch the YouTube tutorial and messed up on the first bow twice--till it was too destroyed to use--ROFL! I had it right, but wasn't pulling it up snugly quite right. Once I do this a few more times, maybe I'll remember without having to watch the video. We all have our goals, don't we? ROFL!
Grabbed the wrong eyelet setter with this one--ROFL! Got the big nubby one instead of the smaller nubby one. Had to pound down the backside more because of that and bent one. Oh well. I'll remember to look closer next time when I grab an eyelet setter--hopefully. I suppose I could throw the old two I had away...why have them in the mix? Hummm?
Anyways, talk about organized chaos!
My workspace surrounded by tools and goodies.
But I think it is about time to switch it up--and clean it up. Put the stacks of scrap card parts away for later and all the goodies back where they belong. Find appropriate spots for the new stuff and do the bit of rearranging (because the bookcase got moved into the living room).
I can only take the mess for just so long. Plus I get restless to rotate to another project. I need more bookcards, for one thing. I think I will start cleaning up today.
Caroline comes this afternoon. Supposed to be gorgeous out, too! I think we hit 60 yesterday and supposed to get close to 70 today! Wow! Perfect day to ask Caroline if she could vacuum up all the dead flies on the porch, eh? I'm glad I got it scrubbed down out there. Might be a perfect day to read on the porch inbetween my craft cleaning sessions. :)
Flood cleanup has started. They've been instructing people to put their sandbags on the street by the curb for special pickups. The river is low enough in town to be below the dikes--just dealing with the soggy, smelly aftermath now. Glad all went well and it is over with. :)
Have a super-duper day!! :):)
