Do you ever get so wrapped up creating that you slip loose from the reins of time? Do you ever work at a thing until your arm and your neck hurt from bending over a drawing table too long? Do your eyes get dry because you don't blink? Do you ever have three projects going at the same time? Do you ever read six books . . . Wow. Maybe my brain is over stimulated. But none of that matters. Take a look at what I've been working on, and know that someone is going to get my first prototype. I mailed it today.
Ta-da! This is my "Talk to the Hand" note paper. Get it? Talk to the hand? 'Cause you're talking to the blue hand when you write on it . . . Once you're done, you fold the fingers, then the thumb folds over to make a near rectangular notecard. Like this . . .
It's upside down, but it's fun figuring out which way to write on it. Should you bypass the fingers? What about the thumb. Should you write on horizontal or the vertical? I put the day of the week and the date on two fingers, then wrote my message in the palm.
This is my favorite. I made the ruffles last night. It was time-consuming but worth the work. See what I mean about making something and not being able to give it away? Patty, help me! SOS to Patty!
Wait until you see what's still on the drawing board! Until then, Write on!
P.S. Please tell me who sent the tea. I'd like to thank you--as in, write a proper thank-you note.
