First off, I've got to admit that I'm particularly fond of the way this project came out. I know last week I was all about how cool I thought the Prayer Box had turned out, and I'm still very down with that, but I think this card display came out oh-so-much-cooler than its predecessor (which you can check out here).
Jen of Etsy's JMcGuinness came over to the house tonight after work to pick up the card display and was kind enough to let me get some "action shots" of the finished card display with her photo greeting cards in the spaces. What a great combination:
Jen's promised me she'll get me a shot of the card display in action at one of her next shows, which are going to be:
- September 20-21: Meet the Artists and Artisans at the Milford (CT) Green. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- October 4-5: Celebrate Wallingford (CT). Fishbein Park at the railway station green. 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
If you're going to be in the area, you should stop by to check out her amazing cards and photography.
In other happenings, I was able to get my college-bound daughter's laptop working after finally getting Dell to part with a replacement hard drive. Mind you, this was after following their instructions to send the unit in to their service technicians following about 8 hours of working with their customer service reps over the phone. Would you believe they had me send in the laptop to be serviced and all they did was run a diagnostic check on the motherboard and processor - yet they did NOTHING with the hard drive, even though it was right in their hands?!! And can you guess where the problem lay the whole time?!! Argh!!
But all was fine after that. I was able to get all of the essentials loaded on before delivering it safely to her the following evening. She treated me to a delicious dorm dinner and I proceeded to entertain her new-found friends with showing them how we play "see-food" back home and regaling them with tales of how she used to ride her tricycle naked around the kitchen when she was three years old. Good times, good times...
