Just Another Manic Monday…

Filed under: General — jackie @ 10:35 pm

Can anyone out there tell me why, if there is an clean flat space anywhere in the house it seems to accumulate piles of stuff at an alarmingly high rate? I can clean off my desk down to the wood and within hours stuff is starting to pile up on it again. Ack!

Today has been one of “those” days. You know the kind. One step forward and two steps back.

On the bright side, I did get two small projects done that needed to be finished. I made a new album jig and a scoring board.

Here’s my nifty new board. It’s 16″x24″ with a center finding ruler at the top for lining up the sheets to be scored. I’ve used two pieces of matboard to form the groove down the center. To make the score you just lay your paper on top and run the edge of a bone folder or scoring tool carefully over the paper along the center groove. It’s hard to see in the photo but I took a little piece out of the ruler at the top for starting the score.
