A few things…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:04 am

Good morning readers.

The air outside smells fresh and green this morning. All the neighborhood critters seem to have spring fever, including my dogs. Last night while I was out feeding the ducks, I counted no less than 9 brown rabbits running around the front yard. They were everywhere. It seems there was a population boom over the winter in bunnyville.

I just thought I’d drop in with some words of wisdon as I am learning a few things while I working on my book project for school.

  • Tyvek makes an excellent lightweight hinge material. It’s also earth friendly when you recycle old mailing envelopes.
  • It’s ok to change your mind on what materials you are going to use as long as the art supply store doesn’t close before you do.
  • A calculator works wonders when you’ve forgotten elementary math and figured that a 32″x44″ size matte board will yield 8 - 11″x14″ pieces so you bought only two when you needed 16 pieces. Ummm…no. It’s back to the art store for you.
  • Take a break every now and then and do something else that needs to get done.
  • There is life after final projects. Just not this week.

I hope everyone has a great day!
