This week has flown by...it hardly seems a full week since we last peeked into the desks of all the crafty lads and lasses...Pop into Julia's blog to get this weeks sneak peeks. http://stamping-ground.blogspot.ca/ Wow...that rhymes! LOL
No desk photo's of my desk today...I was over with my grandchildren all day so instead, I am sharing a picture of the "desk" Little Miss C and I used today. I was under strict instructions that she wanted to create some more cards.
All this cardmaking interferes with little Mr P's plans for the day. Usually he has Grandma all to himself on Tuesdays. During the school year, Tuesdays are his day off preschool. We have a little routine of Starbucks for a cookie and small sized hot chocolate, a huge coffee for Grandma and then a walk home to play board games after lunch!
Having his sister home all day, every day, for a couple of months, has thrown a monkey wrench into the board games! Today's new routine, consisted of cardmaking from what felt like dawn to lunchtime, a trip to Starbucks for all of us, and then home for the board games. Was he disappointed when she raced off to her room to play with her hampster and it was just he and I for Mousetrap. I had to remind him the game would last longer with just 2 players and then he was happy. He was even happier when he won!!!
Enough nattering...here is what little Miss C created today...
I got the idea of purchasing watercolour paper thank you card packs at Michaels. I think they are 8 for $1.50 The card base is lightweight but not too bad, and it is completely flat sheen with a wee bit of texture to the card.
She places 3 dimensional stickers from the Dollar Store onto the card fronts, chalks the edges and carefully slides the finished cards and envelopes into a little acetate sleeve and puts a wee price tag of $1.50 each (now that's a entrepreneur...making 8 times the cost).
She wants to put them in the craft fair her mom is organizing... but so far, they mostly sell fairly quickly after she finishes them:) I think she has made over 20 so far...
I think the cutest thing is that she likes assembling them into the sleeves and sticking on the wee tags just as much as making them.
She has some close ups of her cards on her blog today. She also explains her "creative process".
