It's time again for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW), hosted by the piquant Ms. Julia Dunnit, who has all the hop details on her blog waiting for you to join in the fun!
I think the nasty weather in the UK and half the USA, which is keeping a lot of children home from school, is still keeping Blogland quiet after the holidays. My heart and prayers go out to everyone being impacted by all the flooding, snowing, and freezing temperatures.
As for me, I've had the Mister home for an entire two weeks because his work shuts down over the holiday. It's been a real treat having . . . oh, stop! I just can't bold-face lie to you like that!
Let's just say we both realize that he MUST figure out a hobby for himself in the next two years before he fully retires or one of us will be living out our days in a jail cell. I'm not saying it will be me, but I'm hoping they have arts 'n crafts and blogging in prison. Cough. I'm telling you this because having the big darling home distracting me is the reason I haven't been able to visit you like normal. Sorry.
You can imagine, then, that I was whistling happily on Monday morning while I was making up his lunch for him to take to work. Just as I zipped it up, planning a normal day for myself, he slouched through the kitchen doorway with a full-on-miserable COLD! Who knows how long it will last . . .
Bless his heart.
I don't want you to think I went out to the Playhouse and had a temper tantrum . . .
To get something creative done, I decided to join in the current Merry Monday Christmas Challenge, where we are to use ribbon or twine on our cards. This will be my first Christmas card of 2014 and I'm quite proud of myself for not waiting until June to start like I did last year.
My ribbon card is not at all what I had imagined. I got really stumped on that one after twenty-sixteen tries and gave up. Then I remembered I had seen on Pinterest and on blogs that some of you were covering your negative hearts with ribbons (boy, that would sound completely weird to a noncardmaker!). Here is an example of one made by Petra.
So that's what I did behind the negative die cut on this ancient SU blank card in order to turn it into a wee Christmas card.
Welcome, Sally, and thank you so much for joining us!!
Enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy. LITS!*
As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!
