WOYW Wednesday TIme!


It's Wednesday again already - and time to share What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

I have just begun to plan the decorating of a box for my neighbor and friend Verda and because she has very poor eyesight I am using large pattern papers. I may use some cardstock also but am not sure. Verda comes to the door of my apartment every Monday, without fail, with her candy dish of the anise candy she special orders to have me pick out my supply plus one for Jim for the week. I also always get a big hug from her which is the highlight of my week and a great start to the day to feel someone cares.

In return I create a card or project each week - she loves receiving them. Because of her eyesight I try to use large images and bright colors and Verda also uses her magnifying glass to see the detail. She has a nurse who visits her every day to administer her insulin injections and she will help Verda with the details and clear up any images that Verda cannot make out. We have had many laughs at these mistaken guesses at what something was! I love Verda - she is so sweet.

Go to Julia's blog at see all of the wonderful creations being made around blog land!

Wishing you a fun day of creating! We are having tempertures in the low 60's here in this part of WI - unbelievable! It was just a few days ago that I posted photos of our snowstorm and today we are to have a thunderstorm!

That is a nice story and I was smiling as I read about her taking out a magnifying glass to see everything you did. Wouldn't it lovely if everyone cared as much to have something handmade given to them? as always, waving from the beautiful hills of North Carolina :)
