It's a good thing..........not
Y'all know I love to scrapbook. It's a passion of mine, that has taken a back seat to blogging, cause well, you guys don't make as big a mess, or cost anything....Back to my hobbies, I noticed this evening that Martha Stewart was gonna be scrapbooking and making cards on her show. So I tuned in. That woman is SICK. She made a card from 'handmade paper' with layers of stamping, heat embossing, paper stitching, and distressed ink. Was it pretty? Heck yeah, it was. She had it more than half way done when the show came on. I bet it took 18 hours to make it. That and about $82 worth of supplies. I like to make cards, but not like that. Does she know that most normal people THROW AWAY cards after a week or two? If I ever make one of y'all a card like that, I expect to see it framed and hangin' above your fire place when I visit. And if one of you ever has the desire to make me a card like that, save yourself the time, and send the $82 bucks my way. Could you imagine having to spend much time with that lady? Just the way she so prominently pronounces her T's gives me the creeps. "Ladies, Today we are going To be making a card ouT of hand made paper thaT I prepared this morning, and some flowers thaT I harvesTed from my wild flower garden thaT I dried especially for this pro-jecT. Let's go over here to the crafT table thaT I made this afTernoon from old wood I found in the barn. iT's a good thing,,,,,," I know tomorrow is a church night and all, but if you've got Tivo she's makin laminated place mats for your dogs and cats. ......Can't you buy a laminated place mat at Wal-Mart for like fifteen cents? okay, not really, but less than a dollar I'm sure. I'm gonna watch anyway, cause I want to see how she makes her own laminating machine.
