Above and below are greeting cards I made yesterday. Before I made them I was trying to make some "art" with ATCs and an Alphabetica journal page but nothing was turning out well, so I quit with those for the time being and went back to an area where I felt confident. I like how these two turned out. For all of you who might be drooling over those buttons, they are by Foofala from the Hall Pass collection, a whole big bag of them for $5.99! They are so cool!
The card below was made for me by my friend Jane!! It captures us drinking our Starbucks last week. We sat outside for a few minutes and a pesky bee would not leave us alone! Scene captured below!
As for the teamwork mentioned above, Jane and I had a fabulous idea today....the Jane and Laura Co-Op!!!! We both have a little problem when it comes to being domestic divas. The problem is that we are on the opposite end of the spectrum from that. Our houses need help, and when we try and take control by ourselves we become easily overwhelmed, so we are going to do our housework together, at least until we get organized and under control. Today Jane came over to my house (with Pumkin Spice Lattes' in hand, which is an expensive habit that we will not be able to keep up on a daily basis!). We straightend the bedroom, put the winter comforter on, put away laundry, discussed Jane's future employment options, and started organizing my stamp room. We only worked from the time I got home until the time I had to pick Mike up from the train, but we accomplished a lot. Tomorrow, we work here again, and then later this week we will be based out of Jane's house. It feels so great to get this stuff done, and it kind of reminds me of being a pre-teen when I used to hang out with my girlfriends all the time. It was like their house was my house, and we did everything together. There is something very comforting and reassuring about that.......Rah, Rah!!!!!
