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!

  1. Isn’t Tyvek GREAT stuff. I use it not only for hinges but decorate/paint it for covers too. All the tyvek envelopes that come to our house go into my stash as well as any business envelopes that have decorated insides.

    Hope you survive the rest of your week! The weekend is coming
