WOYWW

It's been five years since I've had a job interview. You know how they always ask you your greatest weakness? I've been thinking about that a lot lately, and the true answer is, thank you cards.

Case in point. My great and wonderful friend, Rachel, first grade teacher extraordinaire, not only baked the most delicious cupcakes for my birthday, but also gifted me one of the most perfect gifts ever. These Boylan glasses are venn diagrams of perfection.

They are vintage. They are brightly colored in my favorite colors. They are upcycled (they used to be the actual bottles that you buy Boylan soda in! I LOVE Boylan Soda! They are smart. They go in the kitchen. All my favorite things go in the kitchen. 

OK, without further ado. Here is my workdesk and where I am starting. 
Firstly, I am shutterbugging my lovely gift x 4.

etc.
DIGITAL IT!  Sketchy, Sketchy, Sketchy it!

Color it!

Print it!


Score Pal it!


Shutterbug it! 
WOOT! Now to stamp it... I am going to report to you when it's in the mail. I need 50 brittish babes holding me accountable  ;)  Speaking of which, let's go see what Julia's crafting up today.
