I finally had to go back to work today, and it was not pleasant. First, there was the walk to work: across The Wooden Porch of Terror, down the street to the detour around the The Glass Hill, and then walking in the street at The Intersection of Polished Glass. If I thought I could have found a parking space, I would have been MUCH safer driving to work today! And then there was work itself. Lots of chaos and confusion as all the people who didn't have court earlier in the week tried to figure out what to do next, and we coped with a week-long calendar for Admin squashed into two days. Needless to say, I did not get much accomplished other than sitting in a courtroom waiting for my turn.
Anyway, I didn't really seem to accomplish much during the rest of my time at home. Only one layout finished, and it was a very simple one about the courtyard from the Vatican Museum:
I wanted to do more layouts, but the spill I took on the driveway Tuesday left me just sore enough to feel uncomfortable standing at my scrap table. Probably because I didn't try to scrap on Wednesday until AFTER I'd attempted to remove some more of the snow off my back porch. With my dustpan, because I don't own a snow shovel. This year is the first time in 10 years of living in Robeson County that I've actually needed one!
I did make some pretty decent progress on The North Wind. Here's the before picture:
And here's what's finished after 2 days of snowbound stitching:
I came home today with every intention of getting some scrapbooking done this evening. Here's what I accomplished:
1- pulled some papers and began plotting my "Pink Nun" layout;
2- watched a video class and pulled some papers for the "Counterfeit Kit Challenge";
3- admired the newly released Unity Stamps (I only want about $300 worth of them. Dream on, girl);
4- chatted with the gang at Webster's Pages Ning board;
5- admired the newly released (or soon to be released) Webster's Pages lines.
That about covers my scrappy progress for today. And I have nothing to show for it but a credit card in danger of being used too much. I'm going to try to be good, but when the product is soooo pretty, it's really hard.
Maybe tomorrow all those Pink Nun and Counterfeit ideas rolling around in my head will turn into something tangible!
Til then, keep creating, and keep safe!
