Three Finishes . . .

Mom's got a cold.  Nanna's got a cold.  Lori's got the flu (?).  Mom wants to know why I haven't been sick . . . yet.  I told her it's because I eat tofu!!  LOL.

I finished this book last night.  Very interesting.  It was kind of frustrating/annoying that most of the women featured came from privileged backgrounds.  But I realized that they would be the only women who would have the time, finances and support to step above the norm to become pilots, doctors, opera singers, politicians and such . . . Not all the women were likeable and some were downright annoying but you have to give them credit for accomplishing so much.

I finished two swaps. 

This one was deco squares in a single colour.  I selected white, thinking it would be simple.  It was a lot of work.  All the squares were inked with white ink.  The shine comes from Stamping Up Dazzling Diamond glitter.  The flowers are punched out.  The flower brads are from Close To My Heart.  The flowers are popped up with foam squares.  Hopefully the recipients will like them.  I think they would be cool on a wedding page.  There is lots of room on the squares to add words or additional embellishments.

Now I really don't know why I signed up for this swap of Brick Wall cards.  They were short one person and I just volunteered before I could stop myself.  I had forgotten how much work these cards are to make.  But they are done and ready to pop in the mail.

That's it for today.  I'm taking Nanna to the hair dressers tomorrow.  Don't know what else is up.  I'm sure I'll be surprised like usual.

Nighty Night,
