Just as I was beginning to think we had turned a corner and the weather was starting to warm up a tiny bit it’s turned really cold again this morning and there’s snow forecast for my neck of the woods today.
It doesn’t help that it’s really dark and miserable too and not the best light for taking photos of my desk, but it is Wednesday and Julie would have us believe that taking a photo compulsory, so I’ve made an effort this morning, especially as I wasn’t around last week to join in with What’s On You Work Desk Wednesday.
I have a very industrious work table this morning and I know that my God Daughter Nichola will be pleased with what’s on there because I was up at the crack of dawn to make a start on her Wedding Invitations.
There’s a neat pile of the outer folders, all cut, printed and folded at the back of the table but the rest is really just piles of card that I’m in the process of cutting to size before getting on with more printing.
The printing is turning out to be a bit of a pain as it goes.
I’m working on Ivory Stardream card and because of the shiny surface I’m having to put each sheet in individually otherwise it won’t feed into the printer and it tells me there’s a paper jam. Needless to say, I spent the first part of the morning bent double printing the folders because my printer is down on the floor under my compute.
This old gal’s not as supple as she used to be!
Once all the cutting and printing is done there’s not much more I can do until I get the rest of the Navy ribbon.
I managed to get the narrow satin one when I was out shopping on Monday, in a little indoor market and got a good price too, just 14p a meter but unfortunately she didn’t have the wider Organza ribbon that I also need, so I’ve had to order it. Hopefully that will be there in a day or two and I can then go back to pick it up but in the mean time at least I can get everything ready.
So is there anything else you might be interested in?
Well, you can see the new Black sink tidy that I brought to store my Marvy Le Plumbs in.
I used to just keep them in a pencil case but seeing as I recently acquired two new sets, (Victorian and Renaissance) I needed something a little bigger. This seems to be working quite well because the divider inside it lets me keep them in colour families.
Also on the table is something that you need to keep your eyes open for on the Daring Cardmakers blog in a couple of weeks time.
I’ve managed to get a sponsor to offer a prize for one of our dares, but I’ll say no more than that at the moment, other than to say that if it doesn’t materialize on the blog on the 5th February you’ll know that I just couldn’t part with it, because it’s gorgeous…………and I want one!
Right then, I’m off to make a mug of coffee and then I’ll be round to see what the rest of you are up to this morning before getting back to the invites.
See you all soon and thanks for stopping by.
