That picture was taken after we'd each poured ourselves a glass. It was a pretty tasty first batch of lemonade. Next time, I'm gonna try and make lavender lemonade.
Now, Sunday, the post-party letdown was finally starting to creep up on me. So Mr. Pocket packed me off to Mom's to do some crafting so I'd feel better. I did feel better by the time I came home for his German relatives' birthday party. His uncle and his other uncle's girlfriend have birthdays very close together, and since they're still here from the wedding, we were all celebrating both of them at his parents' house. So I made a card for each of them:
His uncle's was very mechanical, because he used to make tools. I had a lot of fun making it grungy and almost oily looking.
His uncle's girlfriend is very bright and cheerful and fun, so I knew I had to do something vibrant. When I asked what her favorite color is, she answered yellow. Oh no! The one color of ink I don't have! So I went with related colors, and did manage to find a paper with a little bit of yellow in it.
It was nice to be playing with papers and inks again. Now I just need to get back to yarn, too.
