What a weekend! Have you ever put some things off until the last minute (due to so many other things cropping up at the last minute) that you kick yourself into the car and back out again? THAT would be me today. And yesterday and the day before. I can count 5 trips to Archivers (2 in the same day) in the last 4 days and maybe one still to go. I am working on a project which turned out to be more than I anticipated yet a fun project none-the-less that I have
to finish in the next few days. Of course, I have never done one quite like this so you can imagine everything that could fobile my plan has, thus the extra trips to Archivers. With today's gas prices I've added a pretty penny to this project as it's a good 5 miles one way. I wish I had a set up like Debby,
where everything is at your finger tips. Here work space is incredibly well organized and full of everything one would need. I need to start buying organizers to set things right in my studio, that would help immensly.
The great news is that I am officially going to Silver Bella
hosted by the lovely Bella Teresa
herself and I can hardly wait. I'll be attending along with some of my favorite artists, crafters and business people. The very talented Debby
who teaches for Anna Griffith and who's work (& work space) I admire, will be attending and I look so forward to meeting in her in person. I'll also get a chance to meet Heather
from Present Past Collection who will be a vendor at the event and Pam Garrison
who will be teaching some of the classes. I'd say that's the beginning (as Debby would say) to a Bellafabulous
On top of this I have been feverishly planting today and yesterday and still have some to go. I've had the flowers 10 days now and just haven't had the time to plant them due to other priorties and rain. This only includes the current flower beds. Last fall we finished building a deck and put in gardens completely around it and the back of the house. These have yet to be filled and landscaped, another project to do when we return from our trip. It always seems the list of to-do's gets incredibly long prior to a trip. I feel like I'm running a marathon and time is running out!
