Cute animal prints on plastic to wrap your washi on. However when I went to buy some they were all sold out. So I searched for other shops with them. But they were all sold out too. In the end I could find no cute washi holders to amuse my self with. It took me a few weeks for my brain to catch up. How hard could they be to make? So here is how you make your own animal washi holders.
To make this easy I cut mine down to 2" x 5"strips. Technically the clear labels are 2 5/8" so you can go with that size if you like but you will have some space at the sides of the images on my labels. For me the 2" size makes it easier to know how much washi I have wrapped. I used a portable paper trimmer from staples. I admit its useful but I dont like it. The design makes it hard to get straight cuts.
You can easily print the owl labels I made through Averys website. be sure you print to full size and not to fit page. If you are handy at drawing you can also just draw out your own onto the plastic itself with a permanent marker. This is how I did mine. Then scanned them into my computer.
Once you print your labels its just placing your stickers on to the plastic strips and trimming any excess. I also used the rounded edge punch on the paper trimmer to make nice edges. You can also punch the ends for clipping in your planner.
Last weeks post was hard. I sat at my desk snarling at anyone who came near me. There were some tears shed and I needed a big break when I was don. Still, as much as I want to forget something so hurtful to me I felt it needed to be said. I wanted to write it! For me there has always been something healing about writing. I am also better in type than I am in person. I tend to write out my half of a conversation when hubby and I fight. Its easier to be sure im clear with my point. I know there is a lot lost in text that cant be made up for. For me though it is a center point of my communication skills.
This week I have been busy cleaning my in-laws space by the nook and cranny. Building an end cap on the wall in our space and planning out quick evening meals because we are babysitting our friends chinchillas in the evenings.
So this week we are changeing up the pace. Are you ready for some cute chinchilla pics?
eeing as since I have given this page so little love in the last three months of winding down my business season I am double posting today. I have some slightly late freebies and late or not I want to share them. You forgive me right?

The change agreement #1
I live with a reminder that people can change. We change weather we want to or not. I was reminded this week when I made spaghetti. I love mushrooms. I added a big can of sliced mushrooms to the pot. I was expecting a complaint when we ate. But my Hubby ate his dinner happily and didn't pick out one mushroom. When my husband and I first started living together he wouldn't eat anything. His pallet was a strict diet of hamburgers, mac and cheese, hot dogs and pizza. In the spirit of trying to please him I tried to cook what he liked. By the end of the first month I was at the end of my food roap. One french fry away from insanity. I needed REAL FOOD and I needed it now! So we talked and I told him this. We made a deal. He likes to say he accepted a deal so I wouldn't kill him.
