Okay, it isn't exactly a peek at the mess on my desk, but it is in my scrap space, and I'm far more excited to share this with you than anything else right now.
I've been stalking the secondhand shops for several months, and last week my search was rewarded. I am now the proud owner of a Remington Quiet Riter, circa 1956. Why would I go hunting for a typewriter, you may ask? Besides the nostalgia factor, it serves a very practical purpose. I'll explain with a couple sneak peaks of upcoming Design Team layouts.......
First, my computer and printer are two floors up from my basement scrap room, so no more running back and forth just to produce some simple journaling strips. Being able to stay put in my scrap room helps keep the creative juices flowing.
Second, I can fit more words legibly in a smaller space than if I used my handwriting. I'm also doing less measuring, cutting, and fussing than when I rely on my computer. Third, I just like the way it looks. (trying to decide if I should let Phil fix the slightly elevated caps, or just let them be)
"What's On Your Workday Wednesday" is a weekly event where over one hundred crafters show and tell what's going on in their corners of the world. You can go to Julia's blog for more glimpses of our creative endeavors.
