I have been busy playing Clara Barton. If you don't know who she was, she has been one of my favorite childhood heroes since reading a biography on her. She was a young girl who nursed the soldiers in the Civil War and was the founder of the American Red Cross. Any how, I have been nursing my Mom who caught my upper respiratory virus and now my "dear sweet, never a bad word escapes his mouth husband" is battling kidney stones. (And let me tell you it is not calm in my house right now ha ha) Bust since I don't think you want to see pictures of all that, I'll share my work space again.
OK what do we see? At the upper left is a book project I am working on that I will share when it is complete. Hanging from my lamp is a Copic Color Guide that my generous friend, Shirley made and sent to me. It is next to the Copic case she also made and sent to me. Didn't I tell you she was generous? Unbelievably so. The stack of blank CD's and sleeves are there from yesterday. My niece in Wisconsin sent me photos of my BIL Larry, who passed away in January and a compilation of his favorite music. I made copies of them for the family who live here in South Carolina. My favorite Turvis Tumbler without it's lid (very dangerous, but I was not crafting when drinking, only burning CDs) There's my earbuds. I use them to listen to Pandora while crafting. I see I forgot to hide the cane. It is my DH, but I admit to using it occasionally when these ole' knees won't let me stand up out after a marathon session at my desk. On the other side is my prized Sassy Cheryl original that I won. She is an inspiration for us all I am sure. Oh see that little diamond fold card laying next to the Valentines. I was using it as a prototype to learn how to make the diamond fold card. I could not believe it when I flipped it over and the image was perfectly centered. I did not try to make that happen, it just happened. (OK, it's the little things that amaze me)
I wanted to show you a close up of these beautiful frilly Valentines. I made them at a class at my LSS, Scrapbooks by the Sea. I darkened the picture some in a photo editing program to try to show you the shiny beauty of these cards. Marsha Nichols and Peggy Dyar taught the class and they are just great teachers.
Now what is going on in your little corner of the world. Take a pic and show us over at Sassy Cheryl's SMT Challge Blog. Winners win one of her famous images.
