Ask A Spider For Advice?


Wednesday once again and it is time to take a peek at what is on my workdesk.  WOYWW hostess, Julia, always has something fun and interesting to peek at with many other creative spaces to inspire, so check it out here.

My workdesk is really the same as it usually is, however, it is now relocated back upstairs.  After last weeks encounter with the spider I was finding it difficult to feel comfortable downstairs.  I must admit though, after I slayed the 8-legged fiend, I felt rather guilty.  I read in a housekeeping book the very next day that one should not kill spiders, but rather capture them under a cup, slip a piece of sturdy paper underneath, then take them outdoors and release them, only after asking them for advice just prior to letting them go.  Has anyone ever heard of asking a spider for advice?  Well, from now on I will try to refrain from harming them, but I will leave the capture up to my husband.

I have had many orders for baby cards since I posted my last creations, so that is what I have been busy working on.  Now orders for Mother's Day cards are pouring in so I will need to get busy on those very soon. 

I have finished up the layouts for my class.  I will begin teaching this layout starting tonight.  I think it is so cute.  Maybe it is my niece who makes it so cute?

And another fun find.  I have been on such a roll lately with finding useful items for super cheap (my favorite).  I purchased this vintage kitchen cart and after scrubbing it for a couple of hours I placed it in my scraproom to use as my die cutting station.  It clears a little more room off my workdesk.

That is all I have to show for now.  Thanks for visiting!
