This week was interesting with all the chaos. I am not complaining just sharing why I have been quiet on the blogs. So here are the highlights of my chaos.
With 1brand new little antivirus disc, I wiped out 2 PC's in our home, 1 was the business computer! Yep all the accounting is gone, I do have it on a CD backup though. I brought them in for a checkup and found that I needed to let the 4 years old go and purchase 2 new ones. So for 13 years of owning a Macintosh myself, I decided to put the money out there and replace the 4 year old PC's with Mac's. OUCH! I have never had one problem with my Macs other than the first one was older and I upgraded. I had to set them up for our business and my daughters college and then tutor 2 people on how they work, my brain is fried!
In the middle of that I started to rearranged my craft room in order to make space and for more efficiency. My room had to wait while I fixed our computer situation. I had started to cut out and color a card so that was just sitting there waiting too. Then, I hurt my thumb! I know how dumb is this? I was unable to use my thumb for a few days, it is still sore, but better. No cutting food, scissors, coloring, taping and clicking the laptop mouse I felt like a little kid needing help. LOL!
It always goes like this at my house, When one thing goes, everything follows and then it goes colossal. "oh well" all is fixable but too much money made me a bit sick. Now if it were for crafting items that would be different, I am just kidding, although how fun to spend that kind of $$$ in crafting all at once. hmmmm.
Now we did have some fun working together to get things back in order and at our home we just take it all in stride and drink alot of wine! LOL Actually, laughing and goofing around made it all better.
This morning I decided to test out my thumb and I finished this card. Look! I am able to type because my peppermint oil is keeping my thumb from hurting so here is my card.
Gotta love those Cosmo Cricket "Tiny Text" sayings!
I used Copic markers on Cryogen paper, love the paper.
I cut 1 circle out and halved it to make one for the top and one for the side. The DP really set the tone for how this was going to be embellished.
Inside the card Edwin say's it all for us "Artists", our Magnolia cards are the inside art style we all have. Each one of us does it different and that is why it is fun to visit our blogs of art.
So for a little fun I will share some photo's with you
I added this cubby and the dogs thought it was for them!
This is what I did with the added cubby and I found those 2 cute baskets at Target and my Maggies are in it. They look so pretty in there.
Here is the layout of my space, when I can I will add detail photo's of it to my picasa album. My mother-in-law made all the embroidered dresser cloths lining my shelves and the lace table cloth is from her too. I love having family memories and gifts from my friends around me when I craft.
Thank you for taking the time to stop in and visit with my woes, hope you are having a great week
