Sister's - Part 2

There must be a gift in here somewhere!

My favorite “joke” concerns twin boys of five or six. Worried that the boys had developed extreme personalities — one was a total pessimist, the other a total optimist — their parents took them to a psychiatrist. 

First the psychiatrist treated the pessimist.  Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys.  But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears.  ”What’s the matter?” the psychiatrist asked, baffled. “Don’t you want to play with any of the toys?”  “Yes,” the little boy bawled, “but if I did I’d only break them.” 

Next the psychiatrist treated the optimist.  Trying to dampen his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure.  But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist emitted just the yelp of delight the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist.  Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands.  ”What do you think you’re doing?” the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. “With all this manure,” the little boy replied, beaming,
“there must be a pony in here somewhere!” 

Still working on that gift!  Do you see a pony in the mess on my desk? 

By the way, do you see what is holding up glue (stickles and liquid glass) perfectly upside down while I work?  If you work with glue, you know how you are always trying to find a place to put the glue, upside down….It’s a PVC coupling!

Back to the gift, Sandy has several business’s….so I thought it would be nice to make up some business cards for her, when I remembered Linda from the Paper Boutique, had created some darling ones.
….as you can see I am in the process of making the business card holders.  I just love putting mod podge on paper, it makes it feel almost like fabric!  This idea came from a WONDERFUL blog I enjoy each day!  Linda’s blog  The Paper Boutique is one of my favorites…

I have made a lot of blanks, as she also plays with paper.  My thought is to include these with her holder, so she can make some up herself.

So, after today, I now have 3 things added to her gift....still working on it.

1. Organza Flowers
2. Business Cards
3. Business Card Holder

Pegs can be sooo useful to 'hold' things together!
and no, I only have the one craft room, I moved it from the small spare bedroom to the larger spare bed room sometime back. as I couldn't get in through the door! (I still can't!)
Happy Crafting
