Okay, actually I embellished a little thing! This is a business card case that I received as a gift many years ago. It's very scratched up, but it's the only one I have. I want to be little more proactive with Tender Arts Studio so I needed something to keep my cards nice. A few little bits and bobs and presto-chango! A new case! I really like it- I think it looks sentimental and sweet. The business cards are printed on a laserjet printer onto Mylar. I get scraps of the stuff at work that are big enough to cut into 8.5"x11" sheets. I found the template at Business Card Land - a very cool FREE resource!
That blue paper doily is from the same package I used when I made my Queen of the Nest crown:For the first time, I'm beginning to feel a hint of Autumn in the air! There may be an Autumnal Crown inside of me waiting for creation! All I need is more time! And money! I'll tell you, Friends, this single mom thing is much harder than I thought it would be. I'm squeezing the pennies really hard these days. I'm getting more hours at OSH now so that will help a little and the shop is full, so that should help too.
I'm just wondering if going back to school is an option for me? I have about two years of college completed- I'm just not sure if anyone is going to want to hire such an old college graduate! If by some miracle I could get financing to be a full-time student, I would be 48 when I finished! How much older would I be if I have to attend part-time? I think it would be pretty neat to work in geriatrics. I like seniors- they've always been my favorite customers when I've worked in retail. Maybe I could find something like administrator in an assisted living center or something? Or art therapy! Now that would be cool!
Anywhoooo....got off on a little tangent there! Happy Wednesday, dear Friends!
