I am behind. When I run behind, the first thing to go is my Google Reader. I haven't been completely ignoring it, but I think the numbers are higher than they should be for the level of neglect I've shown. So I was trying to figure out why my Google Reader was suddenly so high, and as I scrolled down I noticed I had 11 unread posts on my own blog*. Hmph, well, I have been a busy bee this weekend.
I kept scrolling down and ... WHOA, Nellie! My bloggy pal and one of the Head Jingle Belles - Stef - had 45 unread posts in hers. That woman is a card-making, challenge-following machine, she is! She is also crazy talented, and may be personally responsible for the growing list of challenges I don't do each week. *Hi, Stef!*
So I decided to see what she's been up to, and noted that she has followed even more challenges I don't need to know about. But then I stopped, because I saw another one that screamed washi tape! Who cares that it's 3 weeks old? Pffth. So I dove in.
Here's the old challenge over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday:
I stepped back into The Captain's Quarters, pulled out a bunch of 1/2 sheets of Kraft and Confetti Tan card stock for bases, and selected three tapes. I chose poorly, because this is what I made:
Here's another one:
Then, because I could, I made a white one with completely different tapes:
I promise to put away the washi tape now. Really. I'll also try to do a better job reading my pals' blogs within 2 weeks, although it usually results in a wash (heh heh, thought I was going to say something else, huh?) on the numbers: read 3 posts, add 3 challenges, repeat. It's a vicious** cycle.
Thanks for stopping by!
*Why yes, I do have my own blog in my Reader. It was one of the lessons we learned in a "WTH is Google Reader and how can I control it to keep from going stark-raving mad?" webinar. You should follow your own blog so you know what other people see when they read your blog in Reader.
** Yes, I looked it up in the following spellings:
viscious: (not a word)
viscous: of a glutinous nature or consistency; sticky; thick; adhesive.
vicious: unpleasantly severe. A vicious headache.
Products used but not linked below: Misc Kraft, Confetti Tan and white card stock. Mostly mystery (unlabelled) washi tapes.
