It was a very crafty day at Chez Moi. I finally conquered those pretzels and might I say, they look and taste fabulous. I'm not sure I have completely mastered the twist, but I'm not going to complain. They'll go great with the raspberry honey mustard pretzel dip I'm sending. I care package gourmet style. I did not, however, make it to the post office in time. I crossed my fingers that they were open until 5:30pm. They weren't. I'll have to send it off tomorrow but a couple days late isn't so bad. He hasn't asked for a thing, it's my freak schedule I'm trying to keep to - every two weeks, sent on Thursdays. We all get through this differently. It's probably okay that I turn into the package Nazi, right?
After my failed attempt at the post office, I went by Hobby Lobby to pick up the print I got yesterday. It wasn't ready but they assured that if I occupied myself for a half hour they could have it ready to come live on my dining room wall. Of course, what would a day in my life be without 100 totally absurd things going awry? Naturally the print was printed crooked. Naturally I had to double mat it for an extra $14 to center it up. Naturally I got it home and noticed the middle mat was off center. So I'll be back, Hobby Lobby, tomorrow. Grr.
While I killed what ended up being about an hour, I browsed for a few little things I needed and considered this sweet idea I had seen in a magazine recently, probably Domino, for monogrammed stationary. Since I'm a whore for a good notecard set, I grabbed a little something here for myself and then there for a couple upcoming occasions that call for gifts. Who doesn't love a hand crafted surprise...as long as it's sober-looking? Then I came home, got cozy in the floor, turned on House and stamped to my little heart's content. These are some samples of what happened:
