This weekend I spent almost the whole time in my studio. I made 10 orange ATCs, 9 for a swap...
two ATCs using emboss resist technique, one for a swap, one for my binder...
and a pile of envelopes using my new punch board out of prints from my Gelli-plate. Five (not pictured) for a swap, the rest for me to use or send as extras in swaps. They are so pretty!
Between all the swaps and a spate of pen-pal letter writing, I had nine pieces of mail go out on Monday morning.
I got some awesome mail in return from pen friends and swap partners, so it was a fair trade! I also got two journals to work in from the person before me in a round robin.
Yesterday in an uncustomary fit of domesticity, I was deep cleaning my bathroom. The drawer where I keep "hair things" had so much hair in it that I was having a hard time finding my comb. (probably not that bad, but nearly!) Anyway, there is a tray in there where I keep pins, clips, bands, etc. In the bottom of the tray (which I access QUITE often) was the Flex Debit card I had been searching for high and low for a couple of weeks. I had just about given up on ever finding it and was going to order a new one.
Imagine my happy dance in the bathroom when I discovered it!! Oh, it would have been embarrassing had anyone seen! Anyway, I thought, "I need to put this in my studio (where I keep my purse) so I will be sure and have it when I need it." I set it on the bathroom counter and that was the last I could remember seeing it.
Because I had been ALL over the house cleaning (I really was exceptionally productive for me!) I searched in every. single. room. TWICE!! I was still cogitating over where I might have put it when I went to bed, but I decided to tell myself, "You will find it in the morning."
Sure enough, first thing in the morning, I went right to it! :P I had come across some little eye wipe towelettes in another drawer that I normally keep in a basket on the kitchen bar and had grabbed the card and dumped them all in together. When I woke up this morning and needed one of the eye towelettes, I found the card sitting right in the top of the basket.
The card is now in my purse. End of story!
MORAL: Don't deep clean your house? :)
Tomorrow I am back in the studio, but today, the office is getting my attention. Files, paperwork, taxes, etc. Good times.
