...because I couldn't resist :-)
P=Patience (complete lack of)
The Mother kindly got Me: The Abridged Version, Cathy Zielske's class, for my birthday.
O=Online classes (completely addicted to)
But I haven't had my birthday yet! So I've been saving all the class materials till after then - apart from a quick glance through, obviously, to make sure they'd been properly downloaded....
B=Birthday (total child when it comes to my own)
So I knew that there was a printable tag book, a place to note down ideas and jottings as a pre-class exercise, somewhere to collect ideas of words and phrases for each letter of the alphabet.
T=Tendencies towards OCD (manifested in a need to complete collections of, eg, alphabets)
Then it occurred to me that actually I could justify preparing the tag book just as long as I didn't fill it in till after my birthday! That could work!
A=Ability to talk self into justifying almost anything...
So I printed off the tags onto sturdy cardstock, ready to trim them to size. Except that my trimmer found the cardstock too sturdy, so I had to use scissors.
L=Line, straight (inability to cut in one)
After RE-trimming each tag to get rid of the remaining black lines, I added a bit of embellishment to the front cover and went over the letters of the alphabet with a Promarker to add colour and interest. The colours bled a little, but oh well...
I cut a piece of plasma to size to use as an additional front cover, to protect the little book; similarly I used a piece of chipboard at the back to keep the book sturdy. If it's to be kept in my handbag for whenever inspiration strikes then I don't want it to get too battered!
H=Handbag (which is actually more like H=Holdall)
And OK, so it's still not my birthday, but if I don't fill it in - if I don't even start thinking about possible entries - then that's all right, isn't it?
And I do promise not to read this book (the other pre-class assignment) till my birthday!
S=See, I can be patient!
