Welcome to Day Two in the 31 Days of Halloween! I wasn't sure if I wanted to make things ahead for this month long event and I admit I did a few things ahead but not a whole lot. Fortunately for me that will be something that I can keep myself occupied with and try to take my mind off the fact that I have less than a month to find a new place to live. It is a maddening thing to try and do this and it is like the deadline is coming at me like a freight train. We have been looking and have others helping us look but we are having such a hard time locating something that is legit, decent neighborhood, within our price range and when in our price range doesn't say we are "over qualified" to live there; monetarily wise that is. I called a place today that was definitely in our range and looked nice but she about freaked out when I mentioned that I have cats...really?! Who doesn't love cats? Don't answer because I know a few of you who don't...
So that has been my mission now for the last month now and now it is the same as we enter this new month with the exception that I have now completed my resume...again, and am now looking for some sort of part-time HR work. I want to finally use my degree that I worked hard for now that I am not restricted by anything. I am seeing a job coach at my church as well, which is AWESOME! So if you could send some positive prayers/vibes my way with the home search it would be wonderful and very appreciated by all three of us + the kitties!
Now...onto day two!
What I have for today is a bookmark made using Tim Holtz Grunge Board. I never once thought to use this for a bookmark until I saw a YouTube video and now for the life of me I cannot remember whose channel I saw it on so forgive me.
I took some Grunge Board and cut it 2" x 6"
Took some Walnut Stain Distress Ink and went all along the outer edges
Used some yellow/orange card stock cut 2" x 6" & used some Tombow liquid adhesive
Used 2 different clear stamps (Recollections & Studio G)
Stamped the pumpkins first on orange card stock, cut them out place on yellow card stock where I stamped image in green for the leaves/stems.
After stamping the Trick or Treat sentiment on the bookmark I again went around the edge with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
This bookmark is double sided and has same image on each side.
The second picture here shows the thickness
I am so happy you stopped by today for Day Two of the 31 Days of Halloween and to hear me go on a little about some things going on with me...it is amazing how the power of the "pen" or keyboard in this case can really make a different in how one feels.
Thank you again, take care and I hope you have time to be creative today!
See you tomorrow for Day Three!
