First, let me warn you that I don't like odd numbers. I've always thought this was a dirty little secret until the lady at the fish counter at Kroger said, "Let's try four catfish fillets. I don't like odd numbers."
I AM NOT ALONE!
So when Jennifer joined me in offering the OLWs, I gave her the odd numbers because, well, they don't bother her. Or if they do, she's never felt compelled to share that with me. This week, however, she needed me to do the challenge. She's my friend, so I'll take the odd bullet for her.
But I get 74, too.
And 74 won't come until mid-January. The holidays and my move are going to necessitate a break.
Without further silliness, let's get to OLW73. *insert delicate shudder here*
This week, we could all use some peace. The rush and hustle of December and the pre-Christmas rush can take over and drive us crazy, so I thought it would be helpful to take a break and meditate on peace, tranquility, harmony...ohm, if you will.
Make a one-layer card that says peace to you.
This reminds me of my first time watching cable in California in 1988. I was young and Methodist and from the chicken-fried-steak-and-gravy South, and the television came on to a local Sacramento channel featuring a woman chanting and clanging together brass bowls. She seemed at peace, but I found the brass clangs grating on my nerves and changed the channel.
Guess this means peace is in the eyes and ears of the beholder. So have fun expressing your personal idea of peace.
For me, the PTI set Peaceful Garden (which just came to live with me...yippeeee!) says peace. And here's my peaceful card.
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed.
2. Make a card that says peace in some way...something relaxing, tranquil, harmonious. Keep embellishments to a minimum.
3. Upload your card somewhere online and link back to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN! But make it peaceful fun this time. ;-)
