Once again, I have been attempting drawer organization of my desk area. I found some sheets
of rub-on designs that I purchased at one time or the other, from one of my local craft stores.
And, as often happens to me, I found myself sidetracked. Why does that happen to me?
I pulled an empty jar from the cupboard above my refrigerator, and rubbed one of the pretty
little violets onto the cleaned jar front, with the wooded popsicle stick that was included.
Then more sidetracking happened, and I walked outside to my overflowing pot on the porch,
and picked a tiny bouquet of like colored flowers. Now, you know why it takes me so long
to organize my drawers and cupboards:)
The process continued as I made a simple card and rubbed on
an even tinier violet design to the card. I knew as I was doing this,
who would be the recipient of my sidetracking project, as I have
a dear friend who I has always had a thing for violets. Whenever,
I see violets, I think of her. We all have people like that in our
lives, that when we know they like something, we think of them whenever
we see that item.
I had my daughter in mind when I pulled out a few more of my empty
jars out of the same cupboard, and took my sheet of green fern designs, and
proceeded to do the same rub-on process. Then I walked outside and picked a
few of my real ferns to complete the vignette. She is having a group of
friends over this weekend, and using ferns to add to her green and white theme.
She will take these few pieces and do her own magic with them.
Yes, now that I shared this, I was made more aware than ever, why the needed
routine of "organizing", is an endless project for me. Hope you are doing better at that
chore, than I have been.
