What a weekend.
I'm saying that because of how fast it went by- not because of how great it was...
I did make it out for some shopping- picked up this great new Daniel Torrente stamp, while at My Heart's Fancy on Saturday:
Isn't that cool?! I love these stamps!!! I already know which one I'll get next time.
Also, while at the store, I 'entered' their Spring Pennant Swap. I've never done any kind of swap before- and I'm always one to get caught up in the moment, so I picked up the 'starter bag.' I've gotta come up with ten pennants by April 14 with a Spring or Easter theme. Now I'm really wishing I bought the Tim Holtz BUNNY die when I saw it that first time at Paper Arts. No, actually I'm glad I didn't- that seems a big too obvious and it would be like showing up on the first day of school, in the same shirt and sweater as someone more popular.
Because I'm such a famous procrastinator, I decided that I should start on the pennants IMMEDIATELY, instead of on April 13th. I'm glad I did- because my first attempt took most of the day and ended in tragedy. Hence the title of this blog post.
I wasn't drunk. It was Sunday morning, dammit. I was simply having a pre-craft aperitif or two, of my favorite box wine.
Now, this is where you will say, "No, Kory you were drunk."
But I wasn't! I swear- A GHOST DID IT.
My wine glass exploded.
I always drink my wine out of a small juice glass.
Except for today. It was dirty. So I used a regular wineglass. (Is that one word? I'm saying it is, since a squiggly red line didn't appear underneath.)
I'm working away on my first pennant, when BANG-SPLASH, wine was everywhere. I may have set it down in just the right way that it fell sideways (loved that movie) and broke- but I'm still saying that a ghost did it- it was just that fast.
See?! IT EXPLODED.
Ruined pennant, shot number one.
Ruined pennant, shot number two.
Wine was everywhere- took nearly twenty minutes to get everything cleaned off and dried- but the pennant-in-progress took the brunt of the storm. It didn't survive. Oh well, maybe attempt number two will look lots better.
Has anyone else made any pennants lately or would you care to come over and make some with me? I promise to retreat to higher ground to drink.
I'll be back tomorrow with MORE CARDS!
P.S. To the person who, according to Google Analytics, found my blog by searching Google with the keywords "HOOKER HOT SPOTS OKLAHOMA CITY," the part of town you're looking for is SW 44th and Robinson and/or NW 16th and Blackwelder. Good luck, fella.
