Karma had to claim the ATG gun box, of course.
Leah came over after work. I made dinner. She cleaned raspberries and added them to the dehydrator. BTW--the grapes are looking more and more like raisins. It did say up to 36 hours! It's been about 33 hours now...and we want them on the drier side. Guesswork for us till we know more what we are doing--LOL!
Anyways, then we got back to working on the Christmas cards.
Leah put the glued test stars through a tough trial of twisting and rubbing. The Crystal Lacquer was the best one. That star actually bent and it still didn't come off--tada! So that is the adhesive container you see remaining on the table. We put the rest of them away.
We finished cutting out the trees and then cut the "frames" for backing the trees. Ran out of the black paper. I found just a few sheets of a nice green so Leah will use those as she only needs 20 cards. Perfect.
Then we started gluing the trees to the backing...taking turns learning how to use this new ATG gun. Leah got the hang of it quicker than I did, of course, being more mechanically coordinated than moi--but we got all the backings glued on.
So, the next step is to adhere the framed trees to the front of the card--like below. And in the final step--we will add one star to the top of one tree in the forest. ;)
The nablopomo prompt for today:
It's 11/11/11, make three wishes.
Hummm. I sat here and couldn't think of anything. The only things that came to mind were world peace...wishing Dagan and Leah will be healthy and safe and happy...and Karma lives to be really cat-old...well, I guess those are my three wishes. :)
I have been up all night. No surprise after sleeping all day yesterday--hehe! It's dark, 35 degrees, a quiet 17 mph breeze, and supposed to get up to 52 today (while I, hopefully, saw logs). Karma is now sleeping on the ATG box. I am going to watch Nova "The Fabric of the Cosmos: The Illusion of Time". Tomorrow I am planning to start catching up on some letters I owe. Oh, and you see how easy it is to have a week or two go by with my crazy hours and not drive that car!! Dang it all. I have to take the car out pretty soon, too--LOL!
Hey, there's another wish...that I could stay on day hours--period! Oh well, too late now. I don't want to take anything back. ;)
What would your three wishes be?
See you sometime on Saturday! :):)
