A little fun in the creative line.........

This morning, I decided that I would make the presentation of my little gifty thingys more classy (I have such a way with words, don't I) and started playing with Word Art. My basic starting point then got worked on a little, and I was rather hoping that Diana would be around to help, but she was in bed, so when David zapped past in search of breakfast, I collared him, and plonked him down at the computer.

"Turn this, please", "Flip that over", "Change that", "Adjust size", "Make 4"....you have no idea. Poor man. I was born to be a general. I now admit I have a suspicion where Missy got her ordering about talent from. Me.

The printer whirred into action, and the guillotine came out with the cellophane bags and so did the stapler, and my family will tell you that you would have thought I had won the lotto, because the squeals of delight were loud. I was SO excited, and it all looked SO cute, and I then zapped back into the sewing room to make some more things. A little more detailed than the first ones, and they are waiting to be finished as I speak.

Little things, people. They bring the most delight. My mother kept shaking her head and laughing as I walked by singing " I am a GENius" at the top of my voice. Then going back to check that she agreed with me. As one does.

I think she thinks I have lost my mind, actually.

But I had SUCH fun. I will show you tomorrow when I have finished the enhanced versions. And too bad if some of the intended recipients see them before Christmas, because I have to share my brilliance with the entire internetty world.

Not that I am shy or modest at all. I pat them as I pass the table and they still make me grin with total delight. My daughter may well wake up and design an even more brilliant version too. I just checked my emails and she is on the case. Hahaha. Watch this space, my friends!

Day 28: For fun. Just having a wonderful time laughing, making things, and loving every moment. FUN!!!! We need more of it, don't we?

Wish I had been there to witness the excitement.

I'm on internetty tenterhooks, waiting to see these wonderful creations!!

Vee said...

Yes. And thank you for sharing with the internetty folks. Is Diane on her way home? What have I missed? Already home?

Linds said...

No, Vee - she is still down there at the bottom of the world, but she went to bed as the creative spark was lit up here in the north, so I have had to wait till now to get her version of my idea. Her nights are my days!

I'm glad I'm not the only one that sings praises to herself when she gets a great idea! AND I've been known to order my more tech-savvy children around to complete my ideas, too.

I'm waiting expectantly.

After seeing what you did on the quilt you made me, I can only imagine how beautiful these are! Cannot wait to see.

And by the way, I love the new template :) It inspired me to deck my bloggy halls. Now? I just need to post something new.

Alas and alack, my mind is blank.

Love you. Off to see if you are online so we can chat.
