Me on a Monday

Dark photo. Dark feelings.  Waiting for a light to be shone.

I cheated.  I took this picture on Tuesday.  Then I forgot to blog it until now!  But here it is,  what was on my desk.  Cards!  Is it any surprise that I am working on my cards now,  mere days before Christmas?   Oh dear....

There's also a pair of lovely dies that I haven't used yet and Christmas creeps ever closer!!!!  The cool thing about one of the dies (marianne's 3d bow die) is that it is assembled with a brad.  I stopped using brads and I have a drawer full of them,  so this new die is helping me use my old supplies!  I love when that happens.

Chocolate Boxes

No one from my husband's office reads this, right?  So here is what he is giving to a few people in his office.  I made as many as I could before I was teetering on the edge of RSI and sanity... 12.  I would have loved to have made one for everyone in the office, but that number is in triple digits now.  Sorry folks.

I found this on Pinterest and I already posted the first one I made.  These are a train - themed set for the train simulator guys.  I also changed the type of punch I used to do the edges.  A narrower design works better.

I am now going to start using Bazzill card stock  for the box sides and not the white card. I won't need to ink the accordion folds if I do that, which will save a lot of time.

It's a learning process.  Glad you are joining me on my journey.
