What does it mean to be free? What does it mean to be independent? What does it mean to be American? What best symbolizes those things for me?
These are some of the things on my mind as I sit down to write today’s installment of What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday!
I am preparing to make an ATC or two for the Patriotic ATC Blog Hop that Two Crazy Crafters is hosting this Friday. For me, the first step entails digging through my supplies to see what I have to work with. As I began to dutifully dig out my patriotic themed stamps and papers and spread them before me – I began to think about other symbols that, for me, more metaphorically represent these concepts. So, my project is on pause for the next day or two while I decide whether to pursue a traditional theme, or to create something a little more out of the box!
Now for the workspace drama of the day…
Are you wondering why Legend is pouting? No, it isn’t because he got in trouble for his last tall tale (as a matter of fact, he is eating so well, we may soon be putting him on a royal diet!) He’s pouting because Mom accused him of playing Houdini with her stamps!
You see, while I was laying out my stuff, I turned my back for a microsecond. When I turned around, Legend had appeared out of nowhere and was sprawled across my desk – over all of my formerly acid free supplies! When I tried to lift him, he refused to budge. It took three attempts to move him, and when I finally did – one of my stamp sets was gone!
Fifteen minutes later, the missing stamp set resurfaced on a different part of my desk. I’m not sure how it got there, but when I tried to make nice with Legend, he would have no parts of it. He is a rather expressive cat, and that scowly face says it all!
Tsunami, on the other hand, is peacefully soaking up the sun and enjoying a Wordless Wednesday!
Have a fabulous WOYWW everyone! If you’re new, be sure to visit Julia at Stamping Ground to meet the creative crew… and if you’re in the States, have a fabulous Independence Weekend!
