Monday, sweet Monday

I don't know about you, but my weekends are usually so full of things to do, I really enjoy the beginning of the work week so I can SIT at my computer and design. And this week is no exception. Last Friday, my son's girlfriend helped me get started in organizing my studio. I'm the typical "creative mind" that flits from one project to another and leaves them all half-finished on my work table. This darling lady, emptied that whole space, separated the "stuff" into easy-to-find piles so if I have to get something from that room, I don't have to dig. THEN, bless her heart, she put things in baskets/boxes/totes and said "take one at a time, empty it, file it, put it away, then get another one." - I used to get so overwhelmed at the whole mess that I'd just move piles rather than organize. However, in my zest to get this done, I now have 3 baskets on my work table, all half emptied and I'm getting a little frazzled. So, I'll just take a deep breath, pick a basket and get 'er dun. I love using my new label machine with the tape, and even got creative making big labels from my label printer, so that's making this more like a redecorating job than a "clean up your act" job. I spent most of the day on Saturday working on this project, then on Sunday - Father's Day - had breakfast with my Dad (who's 86 & just had TWO knee replacements and now walks perfectly!) and siblings, then came home. I got my hubby a bottle of nice Sake (his fav) and cleaned the house in preparation for the kids to come over for dinner.

So, as you can see, my weekend was jammed packed and now...... ahhhhh, it's Monday and I can just sit and design..... Ain't it grand..... I love my life. :-)
