And now for a bit of humor:
How do you make a layer cake?
Here is my recipe: Start with a foundation made of some sketches you need to file away in your artwork portfolio – when you have the time to find the appropriate folder.
Add a few bills that need to be paid as soon as you get some checks you are waiting for.
Next you will need a contract that you need to fill out for a teaching engagement in 2019 (no pressure there – huh?)
at this point a photo of a quilt you needed to enter a show (the page was big enough to print two images and who wants to waste a two cent sheet of paper, you never know when that second picture will come in handy)
Scatter some business receipts that you cleaned out of your purse but didn’t have time to sort through before rushing off to a class – they really spice up your cake.
Don’t forget to tuck in a JoAnn’s coupon flyer – and hope it doesn’t expire before you get around to pulling it out again.
And finally frost it with some supply lists you printed out for (oh dear, I have no idea why I printed those).
And don’t forget the filling between your layers – things in sheet protectors have a lovely texture but admittedly make it hard to keep your cake level as they tend to be slippery.
Now let the cake age a bit before consuming (but don’t forget those JoAnn’s coupons have a shelf life).
Perhaps I would have eaten it sooner if I had made it chocolate!
