So, today was a holiday and I didn’t even know until I tried to contact my bank by phone. Do you think I was greeted with, “Sorry, we’re closed today due to the holiday; please call back tomorrow”? Uh uh. I was down their phone tree about 40 levels when they finally hit me with that little tidbit. And I was all, “What holiday?” I had to go look at a calendar, duh. That’s how out of touch I am. Retirement is so isolating; if I didn’t have you, webfriends, it would be like I was the only person on the planet.
So, today was a holiday I wasn’t celebrating and I wasn’t feeling up to snuff, but I wanted to get started making paper for my 3 custom journal orders. I also want to make some cards to offer on Etsy for Yule and time is tick, tick, ticking away. I only made 5 sheets today, which was an amazing accomplishment as I had to have a lie down in between making each sheet, but I finished one stack and I love the way they came out. I’m using a shopping guide that gets delivered monthly and this time it’s in pink. To some sheets I added rose petals, some diamond dust, and others a lovely blue pigment that adds a pretty sheen. Here are some pics:
