WOYW 80


Forgive me if I haven't posted anything new these past few days. But I have a good reason.

My production line is finally finished. And I must thank my hubby and my dad for this. Oh, well, ok and my sis and mum who helped cut some flowers, to say the least. Have a look at the photos to get an idea of the madness that was in the craft room these last few days. Monday was a holiday here and I spent the only long weekend I had this cutting and gluing. Can you guess how many cards were made in all? Do you want to know what I worked on myself? Delegation skills, ha ha. No don't worry, I would have never got away with it. In fact, I spent half of my energy keeping my hubby glued to the chair.

So here is the first batch of coloured images ready to be assembled:


And my dad sticking ribbon to the cards. He has certainly become my craft buddy, never complaining not even when lunch was served at 4.00p.m on Sunday. We were starving by that time but work is work, isn't it?


Guess who the guy below is? Yes, that's it. My hubby. And I had strict orders not to publish his lovely face in his track suit. And can you guess where he's working? On the ironing board. Innovative, isn't it? I hope to do away with all the mess and make custom made furniture for my new Creative Studio. More about this later.


And finally the end result. Can you guess how many cards we made in total?


Check out WOYWW if you want to have a peek at other desks.

You have made some of the most beautiful cards. Your helpers are fab and what a lovely activity to keep everyone occupied. I also use the ironing board for crafting (stopped ironing years ago) it is just the right height. Enjoy your week.

I think this is the time of year when it is necessary to put in a production line. Are you paying them over-time??
I think you must have made more than you show in the picture, so I guess 200 cards!

Nice that the entire family got involved in this project. What great crafters in the making. And I lost track after 45 cards, but I saw there were more out of camera shot (#4).

That's a fine production line - so nice to see your family involved. I approve of the ironing board usage, although I am ashamed to say that I spend more time at mine wrapping Christmas presents than I ever do ironing...

A fantastic job done by all. What a wonderful family you have to pitch in when needed. My guess from trying to count is about 37 give or take.

Sandy Ang said...

I'm blown away by how many cards you and your hubby made! Sure that they will be cherished when received.

Sherry Goodloe said...

Gorgeous team work! You both did a great job :)

Happy Holidays to you. Stop by when you get a chance. I'm #85 this week.

Julia Dunnit said...

Well it makes e happy to see your delegation skills! I don't think I could ever get my DH let alone my father to get involved, how utterly lovely and fun! And then of course - the cards - they're great!

Nicky said...

Wow what a lot of cards must be about 40-50 there - I love it when everyone in the family mucks in - we do that and then realise that lunch has passed lol - Nicky 15
