Postcard production continues
Laura and I were so happy to not have to shop yesterday. She's going out again Sunday to finish her shopping while Ian and I watch football. I finished mine off yesterday with some online ordering. I should be good for fall/winter clothes for a couple of years.
Laceflower left a comment yesterday about having to shop recently because of her weight loss (congrats!) and that she even made the decision to dress better at home. I just had to laugh. Because I don't know what I'm getting into every day my "home wear" looks pretty much like "homeless wear". It seems that no matter what I wear every day it gets messed up with paint, dye, oil, mastic, grout or gets cut while I'm sewing.
Yesterday, in our "homeless wear", Laura and I were happy to stick around the sewing room. She's busy finishing up 2 more sets of postcards before she leaves Tuesday. The gift boxes and stocking are made from scraps of her ornament cards. The stars are cut from the Accuquilt Go star die.
I used my new dimensional paints to decorate the trees on my cards.
While those dried I started trying out some design ideas for the next 2 sets of cards. I'm trying for a Grinch theme for one and maybe stockings or a snowman for the others.

ha ha. I understand the "homeless wear" = I have what I call "paint shirts" --they look like I slept under a bridge that was being painted with a myriad of colors.

They are wonderful! Is there a tutorial?
ooooh - Grinch? Did somebody say Grinch?!! Not that I happen to love the Grinch or anything (but Christmas isn't complete unless I see the cartoon version!!). Jack has to see the Alistair Sim version of 'Scrooge' but for me it's the Grinch, hands down. As for homeless wear - for me it's jeans. I live in them and would be perfectly happy if I never had to put on a pair of dress pants again.
