What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday 99

It must be Wednesday.....Here I don't know where my brain is.....I must have left it in my other pants! I took this photo this morning and promptly forgot to post it....geez!

So, here's my desk, if you check my blog entry for my May class, you'll see a Christmas card that I'll be showing. This card is 11x4, and I've been trying to create an envelope for it. That's what you're seeing in the middle of the desk. Have you ever been working on a project and you sooooo over-think it. Well that's what I was doing. When I relaxed and thought back to things I'd learned ages became very easy. I"ll have a template to show the class and they'll be able to use this to make almost any odd shaped envelope.

This has been a big week for me. My daughter and I have been talking daily about her wedding. I wish we lived closer...she's in Chicago. We did get lots, colors and I sent her samples of all my butterfly punches and dies. I think every little piece that comes together takes a bit of stress away. She's a professional photographer, and a really, really good one. I think finding a photographer for her wedding will be fun for her. Check out her Ok, I'm a bragging mommy....that's what us mommies do... :-)

My stubborn husband (yup I said stubborn) has been having a problem with his left foot and ankle. Of course if you ignore it, it will go away...right? Man thinking I think....Yesterday I told him that when I came home from OWH we'd be going to the doctor. I guess my look frightened him. While I was gone, he went to the doctor. Today it was x-ray and blood test day. I hope we find out the results if he could just sit still long enough to elevate the darn thing. He's a social butterfly and to be stuck inside on a sunny day is just killing him. Maybe we should put his recliner in the driveway and he can visit with all his peeps....

OH, I almost forgot. I signed up to take a paper flower making class at My Creative Classroom. I enjoy taking classes there and it's nice because I can fit them into my schedule. If you haven't ever taken on-line classes....I'd say give them a try.

Tomorrow it's Weight Watcher day and a trip to Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. Carolyn and I are taking part in a weekend crop, May 6 and 7.... I need to figure out what I'm going to work on. I have lots of unfinished projects, it shouldn't be a problem finding things, the problem lies in which ones to take!

This weekend is Gold Nugget Days in Paradise CA....if my honey's foot feels better we might go check out the craft faire and the parade. This is a fun weekend, it celebrates the finding of a 50 pound gold nugget during the California Gold Rush of the 1800's. My favorite part is the donkey race....Donkey's have a mind of their own, and a donkey only races if a donkey wants to race. I imagine their attitude wasn't much different in the 1800's. I go before it's Thursday :-) Have a great week and weekend. Please know my heart goes out to everyone in the southwest. I lived in the St. Louis area and I know how frightening tornadoes and those awful lightening storms are. My prayers are with you!

Hugs and Love to All,
