Deck of Me- Week 10: "Note To Self"


Emily's challenge this week is "Note to Self"- something to remember to do this week. Unfortunately, I immediately knew what needed to be taken care of... my monstrous pile of evil laundry. I went ahead and began this tonight so that I could dedicate myself to laundry tomorrow and the next day and the next day and the next day etc. :) I knew that if I didn't finish this card tonight I wouldn't get to that laundry, and we'll need underwear in a day or two (I know, too much information).

For my card I drew and painted it like usual, but the shirt and pants in the middle are pieces of fabric that I have stored away for making quilts for my girls someday (when Kristen decides to teach me how to quilt- she didn't know I was going to ask that of her :). So I guess I'm proud of myself because using fabric seems a little scrapbooky, instead of just painting.

So now, I have no excuses. Off to bed and then I have my lovely laundry awaiting me in the morning. Oh joy!

how gorgeous is that? I love old fashioned washing lines, and the clothers are so cute. I read your earlier post about being inspired to paint again because of this challenge - I am so pleased for you :)

You know what I think this is my FAVORITE one!! Maybe it's just because my parents have a clothesline...I'm heavy into the nastalgia right now!

Ah yes, the ever growing, never ending pile of laundry. Even when it seems to be gone, it magically reappears! I'm washing some now as I blog... At least you have cute stuff drying on your line!

judith said...

Wow I really like this card! And that evil pile of laundry, that's also at my house!

The really depressing thing about laundry is that it will never be done. Cause you're always wearing clothes! I guess if you join a nudist colony, then at some point you could say the laundry is done, if it was one of your naked days, eh?

Love the card! So darling! I love that fabric, too, what cute quilts it will make!
