Whew. What a week! I am SO glad it is Friday! Well, technically it is still Thursday evening but I’m writing this for tomorrow, and it is fast approaching midnight. My eyes are propped open with toothpicks and I’m barely keeping my head off the keyboard but I thought I’d try to get a new post up. Just for you, peeps!! Leave me lots of comments that I can read through when my Friday is over and I’m once again about to fall asleep while walking the last mile of the day!! Here is a little of what I’ve been up to this week besides VBS every evening. ( I am the photographer at VBS this year. It is amazing how worn out taking over 800 pictures in 4 nights can make you)
This week on Wednesday a sweet young friend and I hosted a ‘Photography Party’. I will blog about it all in more detail later but here are the invitations I sent out for this. We invited the DSLR owners we know to get together and share what we have learned and ask questions of the more experienced! (I have since learned there are some more DSLR ownersout there we didn’t know about – next time I will try harder to find out who all has a DSLR camera – I promise!)
The invites were made mostly from stuff I had on hand. I had only black card stock so I printed the invites on copy paper. Then I couldn’t find the double-sided tape and I didn’t want to use a glue stick so I used my cute stapler to staple the paper to the card stock. Added ribbon just for a fun detail.
Still couldn’t find the glue stick when I was ready to put the details on the back so I used my gold Japanese Washi tape to fasten them on.
And since I didn’t have the right size envelopes for the invites, and I didn’t want to run to town just to get some I dug through my stash and found these bags to use for envelopes. A couple Cavallini stamps dressed them up a little 🙂
Technically these weren’t made this week but they were made within the last 8 or 9 days. I sent two of them off to the Ironstone Nest – one for her to keep and one for her to give away. If you haven’t entered to win it yet you should head over there now!!
And these boxes appeared on my porch last Friday! So now school can commence in full force. This week was our 4th week back at school work. The main thing we did was math along with a couple other things here and there. Now it is all here and we can get at it!! Well, right now we have cousins here from out-of-state so we will be taking a mini break. But that is one of the benefits of homeschooling – we make our own schedule. And a very flexible schedule it is 🙂
What kept you busy this week?
