Landscape Job

I did work today. No pics of me working, but I was there, thought it up, and even planted a few plants. Not very often do I get to do a job that if free rain, meaning the customer says just do something great. I did have a budget but I could do what I wanted to. Here it is, the dry river bed project. Still needed mulch, but you get the idea.

Chance and Felix really did most of the work. Does it count that I thought it up?

Cards 3 and 4

Here are the next 2 cards in the "series"
Card 3---Childhood

Just a word on my list. When I thought of my childhood I thought of the "Strawberry Shortcake sheets" that I had, and the "My Little Pony" Sleeping bag. Just goes to show the classics never die.

Card 4---TGIF

Is it really a word? Well if "BOGO" is, then so is TGIF. Just glad it's the weekend and Monday is a holiday!!Yippee. Oh and it was a long week of hard work (I know some of you may be thinking that I don't work very hard) see my next post for all the work I did

The Daily Card

So several of the other CTMH consultants have started doing this Daily card thing. And of course if everyone else is jumping off the bridge....I can't be left out.

Supplies--Deck of 52 playing cards, scrap supplies, and a vivid imagination.

A simple deck of cards, turned into art, one day at a time. (or week, for those of you that are not in the craft mood everyday)A visual diary of 52 days of my life. A reason to do something creative every single day. I am choosing to do mine by words that are part of my day, or I want to reflect on for that day.

Card 1--relax
I had a real long day at work (mostly of doing nothing that's why it was long) All I could think about as I left my office was to relax in a hot bath.

(complete with 3-D bubbles and tile floor)

Card 2--addiction
I have a real problem, and there is no patch for it yet. I still have hope.

(my new favorite CTMH product--paint)

So check back daily for more cards....

So here's the deal...

I have been thinking about blogs for a while, would it be to my benefit? So I decided what can it hurt. Do I think I have anything worth blogging about--I think not. All the great crafters are doing it. If everyone jumped off a bridge would I? Probably so---

Plans for the blog--who knows. What is going on in my life (should only take a few lines), great artwork, and just fun stuff.

To answer one question--why Booth #32? It has been my booth # at the craft fair the past 2 years. When Bev and I were discussing what I should put on my business cards for custom paper crafts/invitations--- Booth #32 was her choice. Booth #32 as a business name...hmmmm.....ohh the places that could lead. Aaron picks "Custom Paper crafts by AARON" --boy that's original.
