Well, my sad story is that our internet is totally wonky. It’s so frustrating that none of us have sat on our computers for the last couple of days. Last Thursday we had an outage just as I was getting ready to make a post. Once it came back up it would be up for a couple of minutes then out for who knows how long – arrgghh!! I haven’t been able to do anything, work on my blog, read blogs, email . . . nothing – except for about two minutes every so often when it comes back up. I typed this post off line then uploaded it at once – it took a while for the internet to be up long enough for me to get everything in place, but I did it. I’ll be taking our internet modem back in to Comcast tomorrow so that I can rule that out – we’ve done troubleshooting on our end and everything here is okay hopefully they can find the cause.
Today, what I’m sharing with you is a project I had in my stash from the Dirty Dozen. I do my grocery shopping for the week based on the menus we’re having, so when I get home I post a 3 x 5 card on the fridge showing what we’re having each day. That seemed so primitive in these days where we alter and pretty up all the things we use in our every day life. So after thinking of how I could mount a weekly menu listing, I went to the discount store and got this bamboo cutting board. The two rings were a find in a scrapbook discount bin some where, some time ago. Sorry I can’t be any more specific but had I not had them, I would have torn apart a notebook or something. I mounted the rings, designed the menu pages and embellished it to match my kitchen. The flowers were made with steel rule die cuts because I wanted to cut chipboard I had covered with design paper. I don’t do that often, but in this case it save me all the cleanup work I normally do with sandpaper. The finished project can hang on the wall or sit on the counter with the aid of an easel. Best yet, when somebody yells "Hey Mom, what’s for dinner?", I just point.
