It's time for a new challenge at Catered Crop. We are creating cards for our "manly men"!
On the one hand, we’ll never experience childbirth.
On the other hand, we can open all our own jars.
~ Bruce Willis, on the difference between men and women
I have been in major purge mood lately. It's a good thing that I get into purge mood sometimes or you would probably find me on one of those hoarding shows. I love "stuff". I love books and cookbooks and cooking magazines - purged by half! I love spices and vinegars and flavored oils - purged. I love piano music - purged. A week ago I took my family up to our little mountain condo in Frisco, Colorado, with the only goal being to purge. HALF the stuff in the condo is gone. (In fairness to my hoarding tendency, we bought that condo when the kids were tiny. So the condo was full of kid's games and little snowshoes. All of their snow gear went to Goodwill. Sadly, my husband and I have also outgrown most of our early outdoor gear too! There was a lot to purge!) Clearly, I love cardmaking supplies and I am in the middle of purging. I virtually never get into my large box of pre-made embellishments so it's in the middle of being sorted and purged. But when I started thinking about "manly men" I remembered purging the last few sprocket gears from a Tim Holtz package. I dug to the bottom of the purge pile - and here they are!
I hope to see you with your "manly men" cards!
