Just hours after I posted my workspace last Wednesday, I received my PiF in the mail from Maggie (aka, SilverCrafter) of Worcestershire, England. She sent me ten beautiful notecards, which will clearly remind me of our participation in WOYWW with Julia at Stamping Ground:
Along with the cards came what she called in her letter “one or two odd bits of other artwork”. But there were more than one or two goodies included for me to play with!
Though it is probably too small to see in this picture, on the left side of my desk are two library books: The No Cry Potty Training Solution and Potty Training for Dummies. I potty-trained my older daughter last summer, and this summer, in about a week and a half, it is my younger daughter’s turn to learn the wonders of modern plumbing. Wish me luck! Actually, just wish me patience. I was not at my best when I tried to do this the last time around!
The Pink Couch’s tutorial. If you missed my last blog post, I was agonizing over the ethics of using projects created by following online tutorials. I don’t know where these particular tags are headed, but I had fun creating additional, smaller-sized cakes and cupcakes that could fit on shipping-size tags made from white card stock. I even painted reinforcement labels in coordinating colors, and then went a little nuts with ribbons, lace, and fibers.
I will not be participating in WOYWW next week, as I will be teaching a week-long class to teachers of grades K to 8 on the topic of Managing a Writing/Reading Classroom. The class is a graduate course offering through the Pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project. It is the only week out of the year where I am a working mom instead of a stay-at-home mom, so pretty much everything else is going to be put on hold during the week!

Have an art-full Wednesday!
