You know how when we think back to school or college there are always a few people who stand out? They are the ones who are part of our bond to a school. This week a very special professor from my college days died. I'm at an age when this should be expected, but somehow I cannot imagine my college campus without him. I made a card to send to his widow. I don't have any sympathy stamps down here, so I just tried to pick an appropriate image. I used watercolor crayons for this one and really like how it came out. The stamp is Stampscapes' Country Chapel.
I also made a card today to send to my niece. She had surgery today and I wanted to cheer her up. Nothing like Mickey for that! I used my Prismacolor markers and I'm very happy with the results.
Then I played with my Enveloper- one part of a set from Crafter's Companion that I really like. I got my set at HSN and you can see it there. It makes envelopes in less than a minute!! TOO EASY!!! I love that I can match the envelope to the patterned paper I used for the card!
So, the laundry is done, I played quite a bit today, I made homemade baked macaroni and cheese for dinner (my VERY favorite comfort food) with enough left over for several more meals (and, I really prefer it the second time). I talked on the phone for a long time to a special friend who always understands me, and then for another long time to my very special Auntie.
Now, I have the extra bed made, the towels laid out nicely and I am all ready for the arrival tomorrow of a good friend who is going to stay, and play, and laugh with me for the next couple days. All ready, that is, except RE-cleaning up the crafty mess all over the table, lol! (I cleaned up before dinner but decided later that I just *had* to make those envelopes NOW.)
It was a LONG day!
