Did you notice the two new pages on this site? No. I wouldn’t have done either. Which is why I thought I’d let you know right here. If you click on the button at the top of the page ‘Social Stationery’, you’ll see what I’ve been working on lately. And if you click on ‘Bespoke Gifts’, you’ll see the one lonesome picture I finished the other day. There’ll be more to come. All in good time.
That’s what a lovely friend of ours donated to our little monsters a couple of weeks ago. And to thank her (as well as freshly made raspberry muffins and 37 cups of tea) I made her this card….
…featuring the wigwam, playing itself…..
….and the car mat on the reverse of the card, also playing itself.
I received a text from B when she had opened the card, telling me how she’d shown it to her daughter and said to her isn’t it amazing how I’d found a card showing the same wigwam and same car mat. (*rolling my eyes and shaking my head. Again)
(Just joshing, B. Thanks again…love ya!)
As much as I love my two little people and my husband, I also crave time to myself. No interruptions. No television. And if I’m lucky enough to get lost in something I’ve wanted to do for a while, I even forget to eat. (Being a woman who has no time to exercise, that can only be a good thing).
So today, I have been sat at my Mac since 9:30 am and I have only moved to make 3 cups of coffee. The time is now 2:01 pm. Impressive. My wrist aches, my toes are bent upside down on the floor (that makes no sense but I know what I mean) and my feet and hands feel like they’ve taken a vacation to the Baltic (I stole that phrase from my friend. She knows who she is). Despite these aches and shivers, I am content. All because I have had some time to myself. Simple, really. But time is rarely on my side, which is why I’m making such a big deal out of this.
What have I been doing since 9:30 am this morning, you might ask? Well, let me update you.
A couple of weeks ago, a new friend was talking about her frustration in her search for personal notecards. You know the ones. Those small landscape notecards sporting some kind of little motif or pattern. The ones she liked were too much money for too few cards. Anyway, to cut a long story short, that is what I set my mind to this morning. Creating some notecard designs. And here they are. I think I’m pleased with them. I’ll have a think about it.
Oh, and while I was at it, I created some for another friend, as a little surprise. And she’s kindly allowed me to feature them right here. Thankyou Lady Ruddington.
Right. Time to stretch my legs.
