I haven't yet fully unpacked my new office, so I have not really made much use of the new space for craftiness. Well, I take that back. I did recover our dining room chairs last Friday night--just in time for our most excellent house guest to arrive. It was a relatively simple project, complicated only by my atrocious cutting skills. Happily, my atrocious cutting skills were offset by the ease of cutting good upholstery fabric with a smallish geometric pattern. All hail 2-inch repeats! Still, as I was recovering the chairs and google chatting with another most excellent friend, it was brought to my attention that it is a little weird to start upholstery projects at 9 o'clock on a Friday. While typing. But, well, that's me.
Speaking of cutting semi-straight lines, I should report that my lovely husband gave me a most excellent paper trimmer for Christmas. No, not the $400 ream cutting behemoth of my dreams. This might be better. Because, while this 15" cutter does not plow through 500 sheets of bond at a time, it does perforate, score, and scallop like nobody's business! I am totally loving it.
Oh! Also, I have been working on another free printable project. This time I am doing children's valentines cards (though amorous adults will also be free to use them). I have been putting together some non-traditional, cute-but-not-cutesy illustrations, but I would love to incorporate your ideas...Anybody? I hope to have them up by the end of the month so you can print print print to your hearts' content.
